“Our mission is for all pupils to be equipped with the necessary tools to be successful in the next stage of their life.” Joanne Hall, Headteacher
We aim to inspire all our pupils, we want them to love to learn!
We aim to develop a thirst for knowledge, we want them to succeed!
Our values are personal to our school and our community. They are a result of listening to one another, effective team work- they derive from our pupils, parents and staff. By working collaboratively together on our values, we feel they work more effectively in bringing us together as a caring, respectful community, as they have been created through mutual respect here at Merritts Brook.
We will encourage our pupils to make the right choices during their time at Merritts Brook, and pupils will be set with life skills to continue to make the right choices in their future.
Values are things we believe in that help us to make the best decisions about how to behave. They are the principles that guide our lives.
Some values are quite tricky to understand and difficult to do every day; others are easier to spot and simpler to do.
Values Education is not just something that helps you to learn when you are younger; it is a set of tools that you will carry with you all your life. Understanding values will help you to make difficult decisions even when you have graduated from MBA!
At Merritts Brook, there are key values that we learn about throughout the year and that underpin all that we do in the academy. At the start of each half term, each value is launched and focused upon throughout the half term, as a school we will reinforce what the value means and how we should try to behave.
Our Values are:
“Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.” Og Mandino
