Our Values – Building Community
We believe that as a school we should serve the community and that a school plays an important part of any community in terms of regeneration, equity building and social cohesion. We have many communities in school (year groups, friendship groups, ethnic groups, gender groups, disability groups, LGBT groups, staff team groups, staff friendship groups) and we are part of a local, national and global community. When we think about community we have to think of it in the small sense and the wider sense. When we are talking about community we are talking about identifying how we want our community to be and what can be, fostering a sense of connectedness which builds social capital and ensures equity.
