We want to create an emotionally literate School where we treat one another with respect and fairness; bound by a common set of values that allows for outstanding teaching and learning to take place. Students will demonstrate exemplary behaviour that will enable everyone to achieve. All will feel safe and confident in supporting one another; contributing positively to wider society.
At Devon Studio School we aim to provide:
A culture of mutual respect, where risk taking and experimentation are supported within an environment of co-operation and consideration for others;
A learning ambience within which students learn effectively, adopt a growth mind-set and complete their assigned work;
An atmosphere which promotes positive behaviour, self- discipline and self- reflection;
A shared sense of pride and high aspirations with recognition of progress and achievement in its widest sense;
A commitment to value and promote personal responsibility allowing students to achieve qualifications and develop employability skills, to enrich their lives beyond school and enable students to make positive contributions to the economy and society;
A celebratory environment where accomplishments in the widest sense are acknowledged and where learning is highly personalised.
The 6C's: Our Culture
As a school, we are committed to education aimed at a direct focus of promoting careers in the Social, Early Years and Health care Sectors. As a user of those services (whether as an adult or a child) we expect a certain level of care afforded to us.
In the past few years there has been a drive to promote six core values that symbolise care. As a School we have realised that these six core values should also be promoted by all our students, and as such we have created a framework for all our pupils to abide by to promote these values.
The six core values are Care, Compassion, Competence, Communication, Courage and Commitment.
