Values and Ethos

 

The education culture at all VIAT schools is based on 3 key principles:

Outstanding Care

Every student thrives as a member of a cohesive and tolerant community with the highest possible future aspirations for themselves and each other. The key features of Outstanding Care are:

  • Attendance: care focused on the relationship between outstanding attendance and outstanding educational achievement
  • Wellbeing: care to develop a happy student, highly motivated to learn
  • Behaviour: care to foster outstanding behaviour as the key to taking full advantage of education
  • Academic Progress: care to ensure that every student’s progress is tracked with intervention as necessary to ensure all students achieve beyond their potential
  • Individual Educational Needs: care based on a belief that all students have individual needs that we identify and to which we will respond
  • Individual Health Needs: care for students with specific health needs.

 

Outstanding Education

  • Every student benefits from an education that has STEM subjects at its heart, within the framework of a broad, balanced and innovative curriculum.

 

Outstanding Opportunities

The Opportunities Programme helps students identify, develop and explore their personal interests and aptitudes. The key features of Outstanding Opportunities are:

  • The Arts: Opportunities to learn a musical instrument, to visit galleries, museums, theatre, concerts and live performance, and to participate in live performances of their own.
  • Leadership: Opportunities to lead and influence others.
  • Sport: Opportunities to develop individual skills and a healthy lifestyle alongside a love of competitive sport and games.
  • Internationalism: Opportunities to interact with global cultures.
  • Service to others: Opportunities to help others and volunteer as a member of a team.

These three key principles are underpinned by a set of core values (PRIDE):

  • Personal excellence: Recognise and appreciate excellence in everything that we do. Understand that excellence is achieved through hard work and dedication. Believe that excellence can be achieved.
  • Respect: For all members of the school community, home, the wider community and our working environment.
  • Individuality: Understanding that every member of the school community is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Determination: Striving to improve continuously and recognising that learning happens also when we fail.
  • Equality: Understanding, embracing and celebrating cultural diversity.
