Vision & Values

Matravers School – Vision and Values (October 2017)

Our Vision

Our Vision is for Matravers School to be a world-class centre for teaching and learning at the heart of our region, the secondary school of choice for young people.

Achieving this involves ensuring that every Matravers student exceeds expectations in all aspects of their education. We will enable our students to gain the highest possible qualifications and equip them with the skills and values that they need to achieve their ambitions on leaving school.

We will provide the outstanding teaching, learning and leadership needed to fulfil this goal.

Our students will demonstrate outstanding attitudes towards learning supported through a wide-range of opportunities to represent themselves and their school with pride. We will provide the exceptional care and support required to promote the safety and wellbeing of our school community.

Our extensive range of curriculum opportunity ensures that every student is well-equipped to progress successfully in life.

Our bespoke collaborations with other organisations will positively influence both our own learning community and the wider education system.

Our Values

Our values are embedded in all that we do at Matravers School. We believe they reflect our approach to ensuring that our students receive the most fulfilling and rewarding education possible.

Resilience We equip our students with high quality core skills and the aptitudes to use them in order that they become independent enquirers, team workers, effective participants, self-managers, reflective learners and creative thinkers. Our inspiring teaching and learning empowers our students to meet any challenge with confidence and succeed in life.

Creativity We embed confidence and self-belief within our students by inspiring a passion for learning which extends to every member of the community. Students strive for excellence; teachers, support staff and the wider community continually enhance a flexible repertoire of skills in order to enable students to exceed expectations.

Ambition We enable our students to realise that anything is possible. There are no ceilings or limits to our aspirations.  We embrace an atmosphere of success across the whole school, which is publicly recognised and celebrated.

Happiness We recognise that every student is an individual. We care greatly for each pupil, providing them with the support and guidance they need to be fulfilled and happy.

Success We empower our students to raise their aspirations towards excellence. We ensure this happens by setting challenging targets and rigorously monitoring progress towards them. Through our home/school partnership we engage parents in the learning success of their children.

Dynamism We ensure that our students grow and develop into rounded, grounded and reflective individuals with a strong sense of moral purpose. By doing so we prepare our students for life in modern Britain and encourage them to contribute positively to the world in which we live.
