Values and Ethos

At George Hastwell School, we want our pupils to reach their full potential. This also involves helping them to develop into positive members of our community. In order to achieve this we have developed our Values based Education.

Our Values:

  • Respect

  • Fairness

  • Kindness

  • Pride

  • Responsibility

  • Resilience


Our goal is to permeate these core values into every aspect of our school; underpinning our curriculum and our ethos. In doing this we aim to develop our pupils understanding of their local communities and the wider community of Britain.


Britain is diverse in cultures, beliefs and ethnic backgrounds. We want our pupils to understand this and develop a greater level of respect for everyone they meet. We strive for our pupils to appreciate that difference and diversity can be a positive thing, and to respect and protect that belief.

Our Values based Education creates in our pupils an awareness of how to Value themselves and Value each other.
