Ethos and Values

At The Magna Carta School we strive to provide a welcoming, challenging, secure and inclusive learning environment where all students and staff are respected, cared for, and feel that they belong. 

We are committed to realising our vision that Learning Shapes Lives by creating a culture in which everyone aspires to achieve.

Our aim is to prepare our students for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead, enabling each student to realise their full potential by embracing the values and skills necessary for long-term self-development and the development of our community and wider society. We encourage them to believe actively that they will play a part in shaping the present and future world and that their actions will determine their destiny.

We equally recognise and promote the importance of life-long learning for our staff, developing a culture that we can always be ‘even better’ and supporting them with professional and career development.

We consider self-respect and consideration for others as valuable life behaviours. To facilitate high aspirations, progress, and achievement we have high expectations of behaviour, rooted in respect for each other. To work well we must all act with courtesy, co-operation, and common sense.

We are committed to creating a reflective educational environment and a school community where together we learn to know, to do, to be and to live together.
