At this school we love, value and respect the uniqueness of all of our pupils. We continually strive to fill their lives with awe and wonder and inspire them to transform their lives and achieve success. Our work places their best interests and rights at the heart of everything we do without discrimination, so that they will live, flourish and fly. We aim to listen to their views on every aspect of school life and empower them to make decisions that will have a positive impact on themselves, each other and their families. Our pupils are our future and we want that future to be extraordinary.
These are the values we have in our school:
To be happy – We want our whole school community to be happy. Pupil achievement and progression starts with good emotional well-being and we will do whatever we can to make this school a happy and safe environment.
Self-belief – At this school we feel strongly that the most important person to believe in is yourself therefore we foster an environment that encourages self-belief, self-value and self-respect.
To love and be loved – As simply as we can put it, we are here on this earth to love and be loved without limitations, prejudices and judgement, this ethos underpins everything that we do.
Respect – At this school we encourage our whole school community to listen and share opinions, ideas and beliefs but what we value most is respect, respect for each other, for our global community and above all respect for ourselves.
Aspiration – At this school we believe in high expectations. We aim to inspire and nurture the aspirations of all of our pupils so that they can dream big for their future and the future of our country and the wider world.
Resilience – We acknowledge and accept life can be unpredictable and throw many obstacles and challenges in our path but we believe that through innovative teaching, a diverse curriculum and emotionally literate staff, we can model critical thinking, resilience and resourcefulness.
Tolerance – At this school we embrace uniqueness and accept that we don’t all share the same views at the same time however we value and model understanding, acceptance, tolerance and compassion and ensure that these values are embedded in everything that we do.
Creativity – At this school we believe that creativity is key to success in the future, we therefore aim to fill the pupils’ lives with awe and wonder, where creativity is valued, where imagination is ignited and where dreams are made.
