At Reach Academy we have 5 core values that guide everything that we do. We focus on one of the values per week and ensure that each of the values is covered at least once across each half term.
Below is a description of each of our values and some photographs of Reach Academy pupils living the values.
Our values spell REACH!
Reflection is a core value because we are constantly learning from ourselves and from others at Reach Academy.
The key parts to successfully living the value of reflect are:
I think before I act.
I learn from my mistakes.
I know myself.
At Reach Academy, to endeavour means to work hard. We are constantly working hard and fully subscribe to the idea that it is hard work which creates successful people, not luck.
We give 100% to everything that we do. The key components of successful endeavour are:
I always work hard.
I welcome challenges.
I find ways to solve problems.
Aspiration is extremely important. At Reach Academy we dare to dream. We are brave and know that if we want to do something we can and will make it happen. We know that this means we must have self-belie and sometimes we must show others the way.
When we are aspiring we tell ourselves that to be successful:
I make a plan to do something amazing.
I believe in myself.
I lead others.
Showing courage can sometimes be the hardest thing in the world. Especially if we are showing courage and revealing our weaknesses (or our strengths!). At Reach Academy we work hard to show courage around the following things:
I am not afraid to make mistakes or take risks.
I never give up.
I think creatively.
Once we’ve mastered the other values having fun is easy! Sometimes though we need to relax and have fun before we can master the other values. We love to have fun on our own, with our teammates and as a whole school and we always remind ourselves that having fun is knowing that:
I am passionate about what I do.
I am kind to myself and others.
I work well in a team and support others.
