Our Aims and Values
We believe in and strive to provide a warm and secure learning environment of quality, based on shared ownership and sound financial management in which students, parents, and staff are valued and respected; where, in an atmosphere of mutual trust, honesty and fairness the potential of both pupils and staff can be fully realised.
Our Core Values which underpin everything we do
We value the Trafalgar Declaration principles of:
“Collingwood School is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the children on roll. We believe that all children have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life. We believe that all children should be equally valued in school. We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.
Collingwood is committed to inclusion and believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background. We aim to engender a sense of community and belonging, and to offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties, responding in ways which take account of their varied life experiences and needs”.
