Values & Ethos

Our core values underpin the curriculum. Together we explore these values, identifying and teaching key skills that learners will need to demonstrate each value in practice. We provide opportunities for these skills to be learnt and practised, with the aim that our pupils leave us well prepared to be active and reflective citizens in today’s society.
