Our School House System and Our Core Values
At Options Trent Acres School, it is vitally important that pupils experience a sense of belonging and value. We recognise, that for the vast majority of our pupils, previous negative and fragmented educational experiences and early childhood trauma may impact upon their ability to forge and maintain positive trusting relationships.
With this in mind, we have developed a House System underpinned by Fundamental British values of:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith
These core value form the basis of our own School Values:
- Everyone should be listened to (Democracy)
- Keep everyone safe by following the rules and making the right choices (Rule of Law)
- Be proud of who you are (Individual Liberty)
- Value each other and your surroundings (Mutual Respect)
- Be patient, kind and understanding to everyone (Tolerance)
