Our Shared Values:
Curiosity, Determination and Kindness.
Curiosity. At Endon High School, we believe in our motto ‘Plus est en vous’ (there is more in you) and have the highest expectations of ourselves, as well as of our students. The desire to challenge ourselves, learn new things or know and understand something new motivates us to try our best in everything we do. We value enquiring minds, the acquisition of knowledge, innovation, a spirit of exploration and a commitment to getting involved.
Determination. At Endon High School, we work hard, try our best and aim for excellence. We are tenacious and driven to achieve both our academic and personal goals. This determination to be resilient, to keep going when learning (or life) is difficult, and to come back and try again when we struggle, helps us to succeed.
Kindness. At Endon High school we are kind to one another. Everyone should feel they belong. This means that we are considerate and generous every day, caring for one another and doing everything we can to make sure everybody has a good day at school. Kindness reinforces our shared sense of community; it builds trust and respect; and it ensures that we take our social responsibilities seriously.
Our High Expectations:
We have very high expectations of our students. We expect them to be:
Ready, Respectful, Responsible.
Ready. We expect our students to be ready to learn by being:
- On time for school, every lesson and ready to make the most of every learning opportunity.
- Prepared, with you iPad charged at 80%, the correct kit, books and resources to make the most of every day.
- Looking the part, with the correct uniform, a smile and the attitude that today is going to be a good day!
Respectful. We expect our students to be respectful by:
- Respecting all teachers and staff; being polite and following their instructions, without question.
- Respecting ourselves and one another; demonstrating kindness, recognising our similarities and our differences.
- Respecting our environment; it is our school, our community, our country and our planet to care for and be proud of.
Responsible. We expect our students to be responsible for:
- Their own and their peers’ learning environment. To do all of their classwork without distracting others, with silence and concentration being the default expectation.
- Everyone's safety, including their own.
- Doing their best and getting their work, and homework, done to the highest possible standard; work they are proud of.
