Our Vision and Values
The Woodard Academies Trust’s vision of opening minds, raising expectations and transforming lives is supported by five core values, which guide the way we work and inform all of our decision-making:
We open our minds and take personal responsibility for making a difference in the world.
We set high expectations and ambitions for ourselves and each other, and we are relentless about meeting them. We will always challenge under-performance.
We place trust at the heart of all we do: to facilitate open and honest debate, to support hope and mutual respect, and to enable us to respond to all challenges.
We value collaboration, promote well-being and invest in relationships: celebrating our individual and collective strengths and expertise, inspiring one another and learning from the best practice externally.
We welcome and embrace people of all faiths and none to our schools, which reflect the Christian beliefs and values of the Trust and the wider group of Woodard schools.
