United Learning Ethos and Values
Our approach is underpinned by a sense of moral purpose and commitment to doing what is right for children and young people, supporting colleagues to achieve excellence and acting with integrity in all our dealings within and beyond the organisation, in the interests of young people everywhere.
We summarise this ethos as the best in everyone. This ethos underpins our core values:
Autumn 1 - Respect – of ourselves and others in all that we do
Autumn 2 - Confidence – to have the courage of our convictions and to take risks in the right cause
Spring 1 - Ambition – to achieve the best for ourselves and others
Spring 2 - Determination – to overcome obstacles and reach success. As a single organisation, we seek to bring together the best of independent and state sectors, respecting both traditions and learning from each. We believe that each of our schools is and should be distinctive – each is committed to developing its own distinctive strengths and identity while sharing our core values as institutions which promote service, compassion and generosity. This ethos is our expression of our Christian roots, in schools which are fully inclusive and both welcome and respect students and staff of all faiths and none.
Summer 1 - Creativity – to imagine possibilities and make them real
Summer 2 - Enthusiasm – to seek opportunity, find what is good and pursue talents and interests
