Our Values

Our approach to developing good and effective behaviour in our students is linked to our core values - Unity Respect Excellence.


  • Commit, Connect, Communicate. We support each other to become the best we can.
  • Students engage with their peers and their teachers.
  • Students prioritise communication in order to reduce the likelihood of misunderstandings.
  • Students show a sense of team spirit in all they do, both in and out of the classroom.
  • Students support each other in their learning.
  • Students commit to tasks in school, both for their own personal benefit and for the common good.
  • Students develop a commitment to extra-curricular activities as well as those which take place during the school day.


  • Yourself, Your School, Your Community. We show respect to others and the environment. We listen, cooperate and learn.
  • Students are kind and polite to each other.
  • Students respect and encourage people’s drive for success in their learning opportunities.
  • Students consider the way in which they question decisions that affect them, and think about the right time to do this.
  • Students adhere to common gestures of courtesy around the school site.
  • Students respect the opinions and beliefs of others without judgement.


  • Make. It. Matter. We work to the best of our ability at all times. Don’t miss out – every second counts.
  • Students make the most of the opportunities offered to them within their school life by arriving at lessons ready and equipped to learn.
  • Students take advantage of all the opportunities which school offers them.
  • Students display an attitude to learning within the classroom that promotes outstanding progress for themselves and their peers.
  • Students use their leadership skills to share opportunities and develop their lifelong learning skills.
  • Students look for opportunities to further their own learning independently at any given time.

We have introduced eight Character Pillars to underpin our school Values. 

Character Education will support curriculum learning, ensuring that our students have the skills and tools they need as they move through their time at Charters and beyond.
