EDPA – Excellence in Pupil Development Award

At Astrea Academy Dearne we strive to fulfil the potential of all pupils in a range of areas throughout their five years of study. Academic success is one of our priorities, but ensuring that our pupils have the necessary life skills to prepare them for life out of school in an ever evolving society is also a key priority. As a school we are working towards the accreditation of a nationally recognised award: Excellence in Pupil Development Award from Award Place. We hope to gain recognition for our successful learners who mature into responsible citizens and for their involvement in the local community such as in our transition programme working with the local area team.


The personal attributes we are focusing on developing in our pupils through this award are:

· Self-confidence and self esteem

· Self-discipline, responsibility and resilience

· Pride in learning

· Goal-setting and ambition

· Good behaviour
