OUR ETHOS AND VALUES
At Wigston Academy we have spent time talking to our students and staff about what makes a successful, positive and happy school. As an Academy we came up with the five values that we all believe is needed to constitute success at Wigston Academy.
These values are:
Respect: Respect is a way of treating or thinking about something or someone. If you respect your teacher or your parents you admire them and treat them well.
Ambition: Ambition means wanting to succeed. Having an ambition is a good thing, like wanting to get good grades, or to become a doctor or even climb Mount Everest!
Resilience: Resilience is a person’s ability to recover quickly from unfortunate circumstances or difficult situations. Runners who fall during a marathon only to pop back up and dash through the finish line show some serious resilience
Engagement: Engagement means being fully occupied or having your full attention. An engaged reader really focuses on the words and maybe even jots down questions or comments in the pages’ margins.
Responsibility: A responsibility is something you’re required to do as an upstanding member of a community. If you’re in a band, it’s your responsibility to learn the songs and show up to practice on time.
We expect all members of the school community, including students, staff and governors, to embrace and embody these values throughout their time here and beyond.
