Ethos and Values

“Imagine anything. Create the impossible.”

 

At The Turing School we are passionate about ensuring that our students become happy, confident and successful young people, whilst instilling in them a love of learning and a desire to succeed.  We are dedicated to developing our students to have high aspirations, self-confidence and a clear focus for their future.

 

We are committed to equipping our students with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful both in education and the wider community while they are with us, and as they make their transition into adulthood. One of the many things we pride ourselves on is knowing all of our students individually which enables us to support and enhance their experiences both academically and in the development of their strong characters. 

 

We promote a strong culture of inclusion and diversity where all members of our community can feel proud of their identity, their individual achievements are celebrated and they are able to fully participate in the life of the school.

 

The school community champions respect for all and challenges discrimination by providing equal opportunities for our pupils.  This is regardless of age, disability, race, religion or belief, gender or gender identity and socio-economic background. We are committed to offering an inclusive curriculum and bespoke pathways to ensure the most positive progress and outcomes for our pupils, whatever their needs or abilities. Each member of staff has a shared responsibility to remove any potential barriers to learning for all pupils, including those with a disability.

 

We prioritise the wellbeing of our students alongside their academic development and expect our students to learn in a safe, positive and supportive environment with a variety of opportunities for them to develop themselves both in and outside of the classroom. Our students' wellbeing is of the utmost importance and our curriculum provides rich opportunities for students to reflect and develop strategies to support their mental health, well-being and resilience. 

 

We believe it is vital that our students have the opportunity to study a wide variety of subjects to enable them to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of their skills and talents. Our subjects are of equal importance at The Turing School as they enable students to identify and nurture talents and skills that allow them to excel in a range of areas. The combination of subjects help us develop our young people as knowledgeable, innovative and respectful individuals. 

Encompassing our ethos and values is the importance of our students having ownership of their school and being involved in all we do. We have an exciting Student Leadership and Student Voice programme that encourages students from all year groups to have a voice and to take on areas of responsibility around the school. The student leadership team has opportunities to feedback to school leaders about how we can best improve our school. 

Relationships between The Turing School, our families and community is key to providing the best opportunities and support for our students, and we endeavour to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure the best provision and support for our students.
