VALUES
The Values Tree is a guide for all stakeholders of the school to remember, learn and demonstrate our key values hat all link to ‘respect’.

RESPECT

We believe in a respectful environment where everybody shows kindness and tolerance. We strive to instil open-mindedness and acceptance through our actions and daily practice.

Aspiration

We believe in high expectations for our pupils to achieve their full potential. We aspire for our pupils to be independent members of society who are confident to take risks and succeed with individual challenge.

Equality

We believe that every pupil will have equal opportunities to access learning and be included in all aspects of school life; each pupil will be valued and treated as an individual and will have person-centred experiences.

Responsibility

We will support our pupils to understand their individual responsibility; to gain an understanding of their own actions and how their actions impact themselves and others.

Positivity and Perseverance

We believe in having a ‘can do’ attitude where pupils are encouraged and praised, and their achievements celebrated.

Self-Belief

Every pupil will be given opportunities to develop confidence, independence and self-esteem in a positive, supportive and celebratory environment.

Caring

We believe in providing our pupils with a safe and caring environment where they can learn to understand themselves and those around them.

Honesty

We believe that our pupils will be given the environment to have the courage, trust and role models to communicate their needs. We will support our pupils to be honest, true to their beliefs whilst having the courage to be truthful and the confidence to ask for help.

  • Democracy

  • develop a positive sense of themselves and others
