Over the past couple of months we have been doing some deep thinking at the Academy about our purpose, our beliefs, and our values. There will be more to follow on this blog about the conclusion of that work, but this week I thought I would share with you some of what I have come to believe about education.
I believe that we should learn at all times, and at all costs.
I believe that we can all improve through effort, deliberate practice, the right attitude and an effective approach.
I believe that we should build the best attitudes and behaviours for learning to enable achievement.
I believe that achievement, progress and success bring well being and should not cost us our well being.
I believe that through taking part and making the most of the opportunities presented to you, you make the most of yourself.
And that’s it: five beliefs about education that we are using to shape the Academy’s values, vision and approach. Keep reading The Headteacher’s Blog to find out more about how we are implementing those beliefs across the school.
