Respected – Supported – Challenged - Successful

We believe every individual is unique and special

This means that we:

  • Will respect the rights and needs of all
  • Will foster a sense of self-esteem and self-worth
  • Want all learners to succeed
  • Want our learners to be happy, confident and who will contribute to their community.


We believe that regardless of faith, belief or disability, everyone should be accepted and not be the subject of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour

This means that we will:

  • Encourage mutual respect and tolerance of everyone including those with different religion or beliefs, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or disability
  • Challenge opinions or behaviours in our provision that are contrary to fundamental British values
  • Enable learners to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for democracy, public institutions and services in England;
  • Promote an appreciation that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for their wellbeing and safety


We believe that a good learning environment stems from a committed staff who work as a team to support all learners

This means that we will:

  • Provide a happy, secure and stable environment
  • Give appropriate support to all individuals, and promoting independence
  • Work in partnership with parents and carers
  • Help our learners to develop communication, social and self-help skills


We believe that learners succeed best when teachers and support staff have high expectations

This means that we will:

  • Set challenging individual targets to develop determination and courage
  • Expect consistent high standards of behaviour
  • Provide inclusive opportunities for our learners to join with their peers within the local community


We believe that success is important to every individual and to have that success recognised encourages further achievement

This means that we will:

  • Measure success in many ways across the range of social and academic achievements
  • Ensure areas of success for everyone
  • Recognise every achievement however small the step
  • Praise and reward success


Values are reinforced using PRIDE Values taken from the Unicef Charter, The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
