Ethos and Values

Chiltern Academy will reflect the ethos and values of our best schools, our current outstanding schools. This is best represented by our aims and vision. However, it is important to know that Chiltern Academy will aim to provide an outstanding education and be led by leaders with experience of running outstanding schools.

Aims

The Chiltern Learning Trust is characterised by its passionate and unrelenting drive to ensure that every one of its students makes extraordinary progress, achieves exceptional standards and realises his or her huge potential within academies where best practice is commonplace, which pride themselves at being at the cutting edge of innovation and next practice.

The Trust is committed to developing the whole person so that young people know what they care about in life and what drives them; know their strengths and aspirations; know how to remain optimistic and bounce back from setbacks; know how to deal with their emotions; know what makes them happy and how to stay that way; know the importance of humour; know how to look after themselves and live healthy fulfilling lives and know how to support others and how they can contribute to making society a better place for themselves, others and future generations.

The Trust will do this by offering them a first class education within the Chiltern Academy, and by offering outstanding enrichment opportunities which will offer them unique experiences and see them truly stand apart from others.

British Values

The school will promote British values, as well as fostering the ethos of tolerance and understanding.  The current and previous Prime Minister have both visited our Trust in the last two years and were overwhelmed with the promotion of British Values.

Values

We passionately believe that all children and young people, however challenging their circumstances and whatever their background, can achieve.  Our students will practise the values of integrity, compassion, understanding and tolerance.

We passionately believe that all children and young people, however challenging their circumstances and whatever their background, can achieve.  Our students will practise the values of integrity, compassion, understanding and tolerance.

Integrity:
We are honest, trustworthy and true to our word

Compassion: 
We are kind, humane, gracious and empathetic

Understanding: 
We are considerate, generous, sympathetic and forgiving

Tolerance: 
We are open-minded, receptive and patient. Yet we are strong and resilient

We will encourage our students to be self-disciplined, resilient and creative. They will be confident, able to express themselves eloquently and importantly, have the ability to think.  They will be given the power, responsibility and chance to control their lives and their learning by acquiring the knowledge, skills, qualities and attributes necessary to succeed in modern life.

We see these attributes as being vitality, competence, professionalism, resilience, articulacy and artistry.

Vitality: 
I have flair, sparkle and an enquiring mind.

Competence:  
I have deep knowledge and understanding. Through continuous practice, I am able, proficient and have good judgement.

Professionalism: 
I am civil, reliable, dedicated and willing. I am open-minded and ready to learn.

Resilience: 
I am flexible yet strong, quick to recover and eager to bounce back. I am irrepressible.

Articulacy: 
I speak fluently, persuasively and with confidence both in private and in public.

Artistry: 
I have great skill in creative endeavours. I draft, redraft and continuously practise until I show mastery and finesse.

We believe that the core values which we wish to instil in all our students will help them not only to be successful in their own right, but will enable them to become sensible, sensitive, responsible and decent  young people who will make a significant, meaningful and far reaching contribution to their families, communities, and society as a whole.
