School Ethos and Values


At Greenvale we primary aims and main priorities are pupil wellbeing and achievement. Consequently we aim;
  • That the whole school community should enjoy and achieve. All achievement should be recognised and celebrated.
  • To develop a creative, stimulating and relevant curriculum tailored to the individual needs of the learner.
  • To work in partnership with students, families, the multi-disciplinary team and the wider community to meet individual needs.
  • To provide a secure, safe and supportive environment to promote maximum independence, confidence and learning.

The school works to foster a spirit of mutual co-operation and self motivation It endeavours to be a learning community in which all can progress and develop together, and in which students can contribute to decisions about their own learning needs. The school is committed to continuously improving its performance.

The shared values which the school aims to develop include; respect for each other, students, staff and parents or carers; consideration and support. All of the above is incorporated into a learning environment which is first and foremost educational, but is also caring and supportive and aims to make learning an enjoyable experience.

With this in place we are in the best position to ensure that Greenvale will prepare our students for adult life beyond school and enable them to achieve according to their potential.
