Our Values & Ethos
Our community is a place of learning and friendship. We provide a happy and nurturing environment so that as well as maturing into well-rounded, healthy young people, our children develop a passion for learning.
Our ethos and values were formed from deep discussion with all stakeholders: pupils, staff and parents, plus other members of the Greenways community. We try and use these as the starting point for everything we do, forming our Community Code that can be adapted as a starting point to every scenario, e.g. classroom rules, behaviour policy or school improvement plan.
A community where everyone is inclusive, where there is equality of opportunity, a sense of fairness and justice and where everyone acts with integrity and honesty.
A thoughtful and reflective community where everyone takes responsibility for and trusts in one another, where all learners demonstrate hope, empathy and compassion; Where relationships are strong and there is a secure and safe learning environment.
An innovative community where, through encouragement and positivity, everyone can develop their skills independently and collaboratively, and where learners are encouraged to take risks.
A thriving community where we have high expectations of ourselves and each other, where there is a belief that we can all achieve through persistence, determination, resilience and humour.
