Vision, ethos and values

Turn your negatives into positives. Let them drive you forward, you have no idea how much you’re capable of until you try…….”  Ant Middleton 2020

The Levett School recognises that the journey that pupils and their families have had prior to being allocated a place at The Levett School has often been difficult. Pupils have experienced difficulties in settling into their school and many have had repeated exclusions, part time timetables and removal from class. A placement at The Levett School is seen as a fresh start, it is an opportunity to reflect upon the issues that have brought the young person to the school. Through a variety of approaches and a bespoke curriculum the school will then work with the young person and their family to provide an appropriate education package that meets the need of the child.

There are four Core values that we have as a focus;

1.    Determination

2.    Positivity

3.    Reflection

4.    Integrity

These will be an integral part to the values that we teach our pupils to develop them into young citizens that know and understand who they are and to become the best possible version of themselves.

The development of self- awareness and that as an individual you need to be able to recognise your response to situations is a core part of the provision. We understand that pupils need to understand their emotions and develop skills and strategies in how to deal with these now and moving forward.

These core values will be taught and reinforced through a programme of learning, and our work with pupils, alongside our therapeutic and academic curriculum.

We will provide a safe and structured learning environment in which children and young people will

  • Improve their educational achievement and outcomes
  • Improve their self understanding and self worth
  • Improve their behaviour

We will achieve this by

  • delivering well prepared lessons tailored to individual children’s learning needs
  • showing each individual they are cared for and understood
  • being consistent in our response to behaviours, encouraging good behaviour and ensuring there are consequences to unacceptable behaviour

We will judge our achievements in delivering our ambition by measuring

  • increase in academic performance and educational outcomes
  • reductions in unacceptable behaviour
  • successful supported returns to mainstream education

Our vision will be supported by our values.

We embrace the British Values of

  • democracy
  • the rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and those without faith

and we are committed to equality.

We will encourage

  • The expectation of respect
  • the understanding that with rights goes responsibility

The ethos of the school will be one in which

  • lessons will be professionally prepared and delivered with enthusiasm and imagination
  • behavioural expectations will be clearly set out, positive behaviour will be encouraged and rewarded and unacceptable behaviour will be challenged and have consequences.
  • Where pupils, staff and visitors feel safe
  • All members of the school community, pupils, staff and governors will be expected to show courtesy and respect and to model good behaviour
  • Decisions will be made on the basis of evidence
