Ethos and Values
At Wyvil School and Centres for Speech and Language Impairment and Autism the best interests of the child are at the heart of all of our actions. Wyvil aims to develop every child’s personality, unique talents and abilities to the full. Through the school’s stimulating and inspiring curriculum, the school aims to equip pupils with the resilience and perseverance to become creative and independent thinkers and to become learners for life within an ever-changing world.
The school actively encourages and supports respect for human rights, as well as respect for pupils’ parents, their own and other cultures and the environment.
The school aims to create a working environment that is positive, respectful and trusting, in which the development of all school staff is actively promoted.
High expectations and achievement for all pupils are invigorated through highly effective teaching, world-class opportunities and a supportive family ethos.
The Wyvil Core Values are essential to the way we foster a learning community within our school. They form the basis of the way pupils form relationships with each other and the adults in school; they act as a reference for how to respond to challenging situations and they provide the guidance that pupils need in order to develop effective habits of successful learners.
The Wyvil Core Values are;
- Be respectful
- Be positive
- Take responsibility
- Try your best
- Work together
The Wyvil School Reflection, which is read to pupils during the daily assembly, provides examples of what these values mean in practice.
