Ethos and Values

Aldryngton provides all pupils with an outstanding quality of education within the context of a happy and caring school community. By means of excellent teaching and a highly stimulating curriculum, tailored to the needs of individuals, pupils achieve exceptionally well.

Underpinned by a caring and inclusive ethos, the school uses strong teamwork and partnerships in order that pupils experience success in many different ways. We continue to be committed to high academic standards and promote maturity, independence and hard work. Pupils are encouraged to take on challenge and responsibility in developing a desire for learning that will remain with them throughout their lives.

After consultation with the school community, we have developed six key values that underpin our school curriculum. These are:

Understanding: We seek to understand one another and the impact that we have both locally and globally.
Diversity: We celebrate difference and the uniqueness that we all bring to the school.
Resilience: We believe in a growth mindset approach and continuous improvement.
Creativity: We recognise that there are many different ways of finding a solution and value fresh new ideas.
Respect: We are tolerant to each other and show mutual respect.
Kindness: We are compassionate and support each other.
