Values, Aims and Ethos

Our aims and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.

 

We believe in "Learning for Life"

 

 

Our Key Aims

 

  • To create an inspirational learning environment where everyone is respectful, responsible and makes the right choices
  • To promote independence and high levels of challenge and achievement for all in order to develop the necessary skills for a successful, fulfilling life

 

Our Values and Ethos

 

It is GREAT at The Grange Academy

These were written by the children

Growth we enable people to grow as all-rounders
Respect we respect ourselves, each other and the wider environment and take responsibility for our actions and choices
Enjoyment  we enjoy our time in school, through learning and playing together
Ambition we work together to aim high, try new challenges and take risks in a safe environment
Together all of this takes place together as learners, teachers and friends

 

At The Grange Academy we teach a values based education in order to create a values based community including the fundamental British Values of  democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.  Values education provides a framework for enabling pupils to become thinking self-responsible and caring citizens.

 

Values are taught in assembly and reinforced by all staff members when the opportunity presents itself. 

Values for the Autumn Term 2019:

  • Self- regulation
  • Empathy
  • Compassion
  • Appreciation
