The 'BASICS' Philosophy
“The school’s ‘BASICS’ philosophy encourages a sense of ‘belonging, aspiration, success, identity, challenge and safety’, which, in turn, underpins the promotion of pupils’ social, moral, spiritual, and cultural development.”
All pupils should feel valued and that they have a secure role in the school community. All pupils should understand how they belong in relation to their family network, social groups, local and global community and what the benefits of belonging to these bring to individuals and groups.
Pupils should be ambitious with appropriate goals for themselves, others, their generation and for the world they live in.
Pupils should have a strong sense of personal identity and how this supports a feeling of stability and promotes resilience in an individual, a community and across the globe.
