Values

Arnold Academy is proud to be  a Values School. Through working in partnership with our lower schools, families and the local community we work hard to promote Values in all we do. Across the Arnold community we focus on one of our Values every fortnight. Form based, Year and House assemblies focus around this particular value and pupils are encouraged to explore the Value for themselves. Our curriculum fully underpins our Values and helps support pupils in achieving their full potential.

Our Values are: Making the most of your opportunities, Caring, Co-operation, Unity, Kindness, Patience, Respect, Peace, Fairness, Love, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Tolerance, Gratitude, Friendliness, Trust, Honesty, Understanding, Commitment, Compassion, Self-esteem, Humour and Loyalty.

Below is the Arnold Charter. Pupils worked in form groups on creating these statements and this is how pupils at Arnold think we should 'Live the Values'.

SMSC

At Arnold Academy, we recognise that the personal development of learners, spiritually, morally, socially and culturally, is central to the education of all pupils, playing a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve. We therefore aim to provide an education in which SMSC permeates the whole curriculum and ethos of the school, providing learners with opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour and a positive, caring attitude towards other people. Additionally, learner’s will develop a greater understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of a variety cultures, with a particular emphasis on British culture.

All learner’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural values will be respected, and those whose values maybe different from the majority will always be shown great sensitivity. 

Growth mindsets

We also encourage all pupils to have a "growth mindset", in other words to believe that they can always achieve more than they might think they can - and not just to settle for reaching a particular level and staying there.
