Vision & Values
Our values are:
Kindness, Curiosity, Determination.
These values support our vision:
To set no limits on what we can achieve.
This vision supports our core purpose, which is:
To inspire and enable young people to make a positive difference.
We empower everyone at the Academy to develop knowledge, skills, character and confidence, and we all make a positive contribution to the Academy and its wider community. We have high expectations and maintain excellent behaviour through constructive relationships built on trust and respect. Our approach is driven by our belief that personal and academic accomplishments are not limited by what we, or others, think we can achieve.
At Churchill, we are kind to one another. This means that we are considerate and generous every day, caring for one another and doing everything we can to make sure everybody else has a good day at school. Kindness reinforces our shared sense of community; it builds trust and respect; and it ensures that we take our social responsibilities seriously.
“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” (Amelia Earhart)
At Churchill, we are constantly curious and hungry for new learning. We value enquiring minds and a spirit of exploration. The desire to know or learn something new motivates us to try our hardest in everything we do.
“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled” (Plutarch)
At Churchill, we are persistent and relentless in the pursuit of our goals – both academic and personal. This determination to keep going when learning is difficult, and to come back and try again when we struggle, helps us to succeed.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” (Thomas Edison)
