Vision & Values
Success for All
1. “Success for All”
All students can achieve. No excuses and no exceptions.
2. Students should be taught by excellent staff who are enthusiastic and are driven to pass on a passion for lifelong learning. They ‘go the extra mile’ to ensure engaging learning, plan effective intervention and pass on their enthusiasm for their subject.
3. The school should be a safe and harmonious environment where students enjoy learning and teachers enjoy teaching and feel part of a ‘family’ which will nurture and develop them.
4. We strive to become an outstanding school. Central to this is effective self-evaluation including forensic interrogation of data and a tightly focussed improvement plan to ensure all groups make rapid progress in their learning.
5. The school should be at the centre of the community, working in partnership with parents, Governors, the Fosse Learning Alliance and the wider local community of South Wigston, Wigston and Leicester/Leicestershire.
