School Values and Ethos

“Achieving Excellence with Care”

In practice this means that: every action undertaken by every member of staff is implemented with the sole intention of improving the future life chances and wellbeing of our children.

We focus on standards, and our decision making is driven by what is best for all of our children. Therefore ensuring:

  • Every child has their life-chances enhanced
  • Outstanding progress and attainment are the norm for every child irrespective of background or ability
  • We maintain high standards of behaviour and attitudes, allowing teachers to teach, support staff to enhance, and children to learn
  • We allow children to gain experiences and develop values which prepare them fully for life in modern Britain. This includes workplace skills and appropriate advice for future progression
  • We invest in teachers’ professional development
  • Our teachers feel good about what they are doing, feel valued by the community and proud to work here
  • Your child will feel safe

Values Charter – PROUD

We encourage all pupils to be PROUD:

  • Passionate – about everything you/we do
  • Respectful – to yourselves and to others
  • Organised – be prepared for every lesson
  • United – as a team everyone achieves more, and we look out for each other
  • Determined – to be the best version of yourself

 This charter is an integral part of the school’s Academic Curriculum plans, Life Curriculum (PSHE), Enrichment and Pledges programmes.

We encourage pupils to adopt behaviours that support learning and promote good relationships.
