Our Vision


Our teachers and other staff will inspire every child to achieve excellence in academic, creative, sporting, social, spiritual and physical areas, regardless of their background, social status, gender or religious belief. Our vision is rooted in excellence of education, holistic development and parental and community participation.

The vision is underpinned by the Sikh ethos and will provide a value-based education for character building so that all our pupils become confident and valued members of society. We will specialise in literacy and numeracy.

Our intention is to bring together all members of the school and parental community to create an environment of mutual respect, care and tolerance so that our pupils achieve the highest goals and contribute to the welfare of all without discrimination.


Our Mission


Our mission is to develop all-round excellence in pupils so that they become good, tolerant and understanding citizens. The highest standards of teaching will be complemented by a wide range of extra-curricular activities to enable all the children to fulfil their academic, creative and sporting potential.

Guided by an ethos rooted in Sikh principles, the children of Akaal Primary School will develop the attributes, skills and aspirations necessary to make the most of their lives.
