Core Values and Aims

 

Our Core Values

A core value is a central belief which is understood and shared by every member of the school community. Core values arise out of what we believe to be important about people, about society and about learning and knowledge.

 

At Wickhambrook Primary Academy our Core Values are:

 

Achievement

Acknowledging that achievement can take many forms and all achievements, no matter how small or insignificant, should be celebrated. We should be ambitious about what can be achieved.

 

Commitment

Recognising that success requires sustained effort and commitment from everyone.

 

Resilience

Staying strong when things go wrong and maintaining a positive ‘can do’ attitude in the face of adversity.

 

Respect

Developing self-respect, and respect for others. Promoting inclusion, and appreciating and valuing the diversity of people’s circumstances and backgrounds.

 

Responsibility

Taking responsibility for the way we lead our lives; how we use our talents, rights and opportunities.
