DIXONS KINGS ACADEMY

Integrity - Diligence - Civility

Cultures, Values and Structure of our School

Dixons Kings Academy is part of the Dixons City Academy Trust. Dixons Kings is the 8th academy to have been acquired by the Dixons group since January 2015. It has been on its present site in Lidget Green since is opened as a Free School in 2011.

All the Dixons Academies run independently whilst forming a main Academy group. Each individual school has their own three values. Here at Kings everyone upholds the three values of Integrity, Diligence and Civility.

By Integrity we mean doing the right thing and keeping true to your moral principals. Diligence is the necessity of giving attention to detail in order to avoid error and overcome obstacles and Civility is about showing everyone consideration and respect.

By up holding these three values our students will be unique and successful.

Organisational Structure

Here at Kings a Flat Line Structure is in place, which involves layers of management. Each line manager has a responsibility for a group of people within their faculty or team, thus enabling delegation of tasks making problem solving more effective and quicker to rectify.

Roles and Responsibility

Kings has different faculties and departments. It's main aim is to ensure all students receive the opportunities required to grow into responsible young adults who make a lasting impression and impact on the world. This is achieved by working together with our value statement.

These faculties and departments run independently but are overseen by management in these functional areas:


Teaching and Learning

Finance and Administration

Site Team

Catering


By working together all areas contribute to the effective smooth running of the Academy.


From the Principal to the site team, each member of staff have clearly defined roles who work effectively within their team. For example:
