Our Community Values
We have thought long and hard about what makes Valley Park the place and the community that it is, and we believe our values are encapsulated by the mnemonic, CREATE:
For those of you who are familiar with Valley Park and its ethos already, this represents a refresh of our aims for September 2020, but they are not a huge departure – more of an update!
CREATE will be brand-new for the whole school community in September, so our new Year 7 students will be the very first to tell us what they think – we haven’t even posted it on our website yet... What we hope it will convey is the importance of the academic, but also students’ wellbeing and all the other elements of Personal Development that their time at Valley Park will provide.
We are strongly committed to:
- Creating an atmosphere of tolerance and mutual respect.
- Encouraging students to take on responsibilities which encourage growth and development.
- Providing a safe, calm and caring atmosphere conducive to learning.
- Ensuring consistency, fairness and clear expectations.
- Developing social skills and moral values within the school community.
All of this whilst fostering a strong sense of community, both within and beyond the school gates.
Anti Bullying Policy
Every individual within the school community has the right to work and to realise their true potential in all aspects of school life, free from humiliation, intimidation and abuse. The school, and indeed Valley Invicta Academies Trust (VIAT) does not tolerate bullying.
Unfortunately, we cannot promise that school will be a bullying-free environment, particularly given the prevalence of social media in today’s society, but we will support where we can and take a strong line with students who are found to have been bullying, including when this is found to have been the case online.
This will be updated in September 2020.
We hope that your child has a very happy and safe time throughout their years at Valley Park School. We look forward to working with you to achieve this and, if things are not quite right, then we will do our best to support and nurture. We look forward to your child becoming part of Valley Park’s new and community-minded “Creative Generation”!
