As an Academy that serves a richly diverse community, we take our responsibility to promote community cohesion, demonstrate a respect for difference and individual rights, seriously.
At Haywood Academy, we actively promote positive, inclusive values. These include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect for and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. We believe British values are those values expected of anyone living in Britain, regardless of their nationality, culture or religious belief.
We place great emphasis on building positive working relationships in the Academy, amongst the students themselves; between staff and student; as well as with members of the wider community. We strongly believe students should not merely be taught such values but that they are embedded into everyday life.
We strive to support our students to develop into happy, confident, and successful young adults who have empathy towards and an understanding of those less fortunate than themselves.
Our ARCH values reflects Haywood Academy’s commitment to continually promote the positive standards through the ethos and culture of our community. This is included in both our broad and balanced curriculum, and through our Personal, Social, Health Programme to meet the needs of all and support students emotional social, moral, cultural and spiritual development.
