GREAT Values and AtL

Our GREAT Values and British Values

At Newark Academy we promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

We consider these to be complementary to the Newark Academy Values of Gratitude, Responsibility, Excellence, Aspiration and Tenacity (GREAT).

Actively promoting these values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British Values.

Attempts to promote systems that undermine fundamental British values would be completely at odds with our duty to provide spiritual, moral, social and cultural values and our vision and ethos to be a truly transformational school.

Through our curriculum, Crew Programme, Full Crew programme and work with parents, carers and many organisations we:

  • Enable students to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence;
  • Enable students to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England;
  • Encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely;
  • Enable students to acquire a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England;
  • Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling students to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures;
  • Encourage respect for other people;
  • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic processes, including respect for the basis on which the law is made and applied in England.

ATL at Newark Academy

Our Attitude to Learning (ATL) framework is a large part of our Academy Culture and Ethos and is a measure for the development of our student's ability to be GREAT individuals inside class, on corridors, during unstructured times and in our valued community. Through close monitoring of students learning and actions in unstructured times we will be able to measure the impact of students' success in this area and support with appropriate interventions.
