School Ethos

“Become the best you can be”

School Ethos: Aspiration and Achievement for All

At Heathlands our pupils are at the heart of all we do. We aim to equip our young people for life; to be flexible, adaptable, resilient and to relish a challenge. Pupils need to develop respect, tolerance and all the skills necessary to make a positive contribution in their communities. Heathlands aims to create a learning community where everyone is valued as an individual.

We want pupils:

  • To have broad learning opportunities and appropriate accreditation.
  • To develop learning habits which will ensure their future success: team work, the ability to be reflective, confident to take risks, accepting of feedback
  • To develop social skills, to support those who are vulnerable and to lead others.
  • To be as independent as possible and be supported in their transition to adulthood
  • To learn how to manage change, innovation and the pressures of a modern world e.g. advancing technology
  • To feel good about themselves, secure in their own identity and to embrace difference in others
  • To know they are part of the Heathlands community

Our school ethos is shown in three connected documents:

  • The Behaviour for Learning Framework outlines the expectations of all in the Heathlands Community: Respect, Responsibility, Attitude and Motivation.
  • The WOW positive behavior support procedures
  • The Heathlands Charter, written by students as their agreed code of conduct.
