Our Values

Sets of values underpin any group of people, from a family unit through to a whole nation and these values give members of a group common ideals to follow and aspire to. We believe that establishing a set of core values will engender the true community spirit of our academy.

At Shire Oak Academy it is our aim to raise standards and improve behaviour and conduct by promoting a school ethos which is underpinned by core values. These values support the development of the whole child as a reflective learner within a calm, caring, happy and purposeful atmosphere. Our shared set of values will promote a positive environment in which students can make progress academically, socially and emotionally. We want to encourage students to consider these values, and thereby to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable them to develop as reflective learners and grow to be stable, educated and civil adults.

Our core values at Shire Oak Academy are;

Aspirational – Inspire all of our students to dream big dreams which extend their horizons beyond their

Success – Learning from failure, challenging expectations and driving for success.

Participation – To be fully involved in school life. Take an active part in lessons and take full advantage of the extra curricular opportunities provided.

Integrity – Promoting the qualities of selflessness, courage, honesty, respect, commitment and doing the right thing.

Responsibility – To enable each student to develop confidence, self esteem and responsibility in all areas of school life.

Excellence – Striving for excellence and high achievement in everything we do.
