Values and Ethos
At Tarleton Academy we want all members of our community to thrive in everything that they do. This is exemplified by our school values of Respect, Resilience and Aspiration. Our values shape every aspect of school life, they are embedded in our culture.
We instil in our students the importance of respecting themselves, each other, and the world around them. It is important for young people to develop empathy and understanding of the viewpoints and experience of their peers. We foster an inclusive and supportive environment where diversity is celebrated. Our students are taught the value of kindness, tolerance, and understanding.
Resilience is a key skill for success in both academic and personal endeavours. We understand that challenges are a part of life, and we equip our students with the tools to face them head-on. Our curriculum is designed to challenge and support students at every level. We teach them to embrace mistakes as opportunities for growth and perseverance as the path to mastery. We believe that emotional well-being is as important as academic achievement, and our dedicated pastoral team are readily available to provide support to students.
Aspiration is the driving force behind our educational approach. We want our students to dream big, set ambitious goals, and work diligently to achieve them. We set high academic standards and provide a stimulating learning environment to inspire curiosity and a love for learning. Students are encouraged to develop their sense of self‐worth and we offer all students plenty of opportunities to play a positive role in contributing to school life and within the wider community. The wealth of Post 16 opportunities are explored in depth with all students through our comprehensive Careers Guidance programme.
