The ethos of Heworth Grange is centred around three fundamental values; Learn, Believe, Achieve.
At Heworth Grange, we want every single pupil to achieve their potential. We will work together to provide the best learning experience possible for all students and ensure that it takes place in an environment that is safe, supportive and overwhelmingly positive; an environment of mutual respect and where the progress of each student is central to everything that we do. We will support all our students to achieve their individual learning goals and provide the widest possible curriculum choices to engage, challenge and motivate them. We recognise that learning takes place outside the classroom too, and we will strive to always provide the highest level of cultural and social experiences for all students.
We will foster and nurture the belief in all our students that they can have the highest aspirations for themselves and others, and that there are no goals beyond their reach. We will always respect, encourage and support the dreams and aspirations of every student throughout their time. All students can be confident that no obstacles will prevent them from attaining their goals whether that be on the basis of their gender, race, creed, sexuality, personal circumstance or social background.
All students have the right to expect that they can reach the very highest levels of achievement at Heworth Grange and that no barriers exist that can prevent that success. Individuals will be recognised, respected, celebrated and valued for their individual achievements by all students, staff, parents, carers and the wider community.
School Priorities 2019-20
In addition to our ethos, I believe it is important that all parents and carers are aware of, and clear about, our school priorities for this academic year. Please be assured that we are intent on creating the highest possible standards at our school in order to give your child the very best chance to achieve the success that they deserve:
- To improve the climate for learning, centered around a mutually positive learning environment
- To improve the punctuality and attendance of all pupils
- To have a no excuses approach to bullying and poor behaviour
- To improve the outcomes of all pupils
