OUR CORE VALUES and ETHOS

 

 

 

            

 

 

 

 

Excellence

We want every member of our school community, no matter what their background or ability, to look to the horizon for possibilities of what can be achieved for themselves and those around them. With them all working together with a desire to succeed and reach their true potential, their behaviour will create an environment where excellence is expected and realised, for all. With that in mind, the Academy will be able to offer the very best education, support and guidance to every pupil in our care.

 

Community

Westbury-on-Trym CE Academy is a thriving community where everyone understands their roles, responsibilities and feels that their contributions are noticed, valued and important to the success of the whole community. By playing, learning and working together, the community becomes stronger and unified in its shared sense of purpose. Everyone within and associated with our school community should have strong feelings of belonging as well as an identity as a result of being part of it. We also want to be an ‘outward facing’ community which looks to share its purpose, identity and beliefs with others. Through this exchange and opening of our doors, we welcome the contributions of others in developing a wider community, be it local, global or virtual.

 

Faith

Within the Christian ethos of our school, we want every child and adult in our school to have faith in themselves and what they can achieve. We hope they have confidence and trust in others within our community to guide, support and nurture them on their journey through school. We hope that all members of our Community have a sense of God’s belief and love for them, as individuals. As a school we affirm their gifts and skills and hope to nurture these with love and care.
