Without the right opportunities, success is harder to achieve. All people should have the same opportunities. We provide people, in the right environment, the opportunities they need to reach for their goals, either as a child learning in school or an adult working for Education South West.
Our children are the leaders of tomorrow. We create rich opportunities for students to work in teams and learn by leading.
Community, inclusive, challenging and supportive
Excellence in Community is vital in order to create the right environment for people to achieve. We are focused on creating a culture which supports and challenges all whilst also working with those in and outside our community of schools to improve all.
Every adult involved in all of our schools is a role model. We all influence, challenge and inspire the young people around us through our words and actions. We recognise that the best leadership releases the potential in others, and builds the possibility of great lives for us all.
Our ethos and principles are simple. Through working hard, being kind, always understanding the world we all live in and enjoying life we believe people will reach their ambitions and make a positive contribution to society.
Character, developing the right mind-set and attitude to succeed
Excellence in Attitude is key to success. Resilience, perseverance, endeavour and sheer determination are skills which support the fulfilment of goals and desires. These are skills which can be taught and we drive children and adults to be adaptable, to be resilient, to be dogged in their desire to be the very best, to get the very most out of life and to be happy in the knowledge that they have worked hard, played hard and been kind along the way.
We inspire children to develop the knowledge and character that enable them to leave school ready to lead rewarding lives in a rapidly changing world. Cultural, sporting and artistic experiences help them discover their full potential. They further develop character through a resilient, determined and positive response to challenge. We want students to leave with the academic qualifications, skills and personal attributes that open doors to a fulfilling future.
Our staff are committed to continuous improvement. We support them with high-quality, tailored programmes of professional development whatever their role and stage in their career.
Achievement, recognising and celebrating; expect the best
Excellence in Achievement is the goal for all at Education South West.
The relentless pursuit of excellence drives every aspect of our work. We understand that this is a journey best undertaken by working closely with others within Education South West and beyond.
Challenge and pace are integral to our culture. We support students and staff to rise to that challenge, and feel the joy and satisfaction that comes when we are working at our best.
Achievement comes in many forms many areas: we recognise and celebrate them all. Our objective is for all working in and educated in Education South West to aim for the very best achievements they can. We strive to reach beyond our goals and to experience failure as a key part of learning. We set out what these goals are and encourage and develop ambition and aspiration amongst those associated with Education South West, be they child or adult. We believe that everyone has potential to be better than they think they can be and we encourage all to set themselves goals and reach for them.
