Aims, Ethos & Values
At Ricards Lodge our vision is to ‘Educate Successful Women of the Future’. To achieve this we have 4 overarching aims which are:
- To ensure that all our students are able to take full and equal places as women; who take opportunities and assume responsibility in a changing global society
- To deliver to all our students a broad, balanced and flexible curriculum
- To provide a stimulating, secure and purposeful environment in which each student is motivated to strive for excellence
- To work together in an effective partnership with RR6, parents and carers and the wider community.
We identified four values which underpin all our work. These are;
These are embedded in an ethos in which we build student confidence, integrity and excellence in a caring, happy school community so that our students can leave us having been given the best possible chance of achieving their full potential.
Why have School Values?
Our school values help to create the ethos and culture in which they operate. These values help to instil in students the characteristics that will help them to become successful and valuable members of the school community and the wider society. We want each of our school values to be demonstrated daily by staff and students.
Our values are:
…knowing you can jump and they will be there to catch you
…believing in someone so that you can build a good friendship with them
…knowing that we are different but we are treated equally
…looking beyond our talents and disabilities and be given equal treatment
...giving all staff and pupils the confidence to recognise their own worth
…continuing when others stop – you persevere
…getting back up when you have been knocked down
….never giving up, especially when it is tough
…having high expectations of yourself and each other
…always striving to achieve your best
