Our Learning Values
Our Behavioural Values
Our Learning Values are captured by our Ambitious, Curious and Tenacious (ACT) philosophy to learning.
Ambition: We believe that everyone can play a significant role in identifying, nurturing and developing ambition. We must create an environment that supports driven individuals, and encourages others to join them in wondering what can be achieved.
Curiosity: A good question can open minds, shift paradigms and force the uncomfortable. We can help create thinkers. We believe that it is more important for our students to ask their own great questions – and more critically, their willingness to do so and seek answers.
Tenacity: Staff and students will persist more when they are treated fairly and with respect, whilst understanding that life is often challenging. Collectively, we will show tenacity in pursuit of personal excellence and we will set high expectations of what we can achieve together.
Our Positive Behaviour values are captured by the principles of being Ready, Respectful and Safe.
Ready: It is important that we are always ready for the day ahead and the learning possibilities. This begins each day by arriving on time and correctly equipped. It then flows into having a positive mindset and attitude in all learning opportunities to enable us to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.
Respectful: A key quality for everyone is to show respect. We must be supportive and listen to others, follow expectations and guidance and respect other people’s property within the school and community. Being respectful will creative a calm and positive place of work and study.
Safe: We encourage everyone to be safe in all that they do within school and community. This includes being safe in physical interactions, looking after ourselves and others and being aware of how to use online resources like the Internet and social media appropriately.
