School Ethos

The School Vision

The Sele School aims to provide an excellent education in a safe, supportive learning environment, where people are valued as individuals and empowered to make positive contributions to the school community. We pride ourselves on affording our students opportunities that enable them to thrive and go on to become responsible, independent members of society.

    Belief in Everyone       Achievement for All       Excellence is our Goal     

British Values

At The Sele School British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs form part of the school ethos, they are embedded in all aspects of the life of the school and are actively promoted. 

Examples of the understanding and knowledge students gain include:

  •  An understanding of how citizens can influence the decision making process at local and national level through the democratic process.
  •  An understanding that the freedom to hold faiths or beliefs that differ from your own is protected in law.
  •  An acceptance that the holding of faiths or beliefs different from your own should be accepted and tolerated and should not be the cause of prejudicial or discriminatory behaviour. 

Please follow this link for further information about how British values are promoted and upheld throughout both teaching and learning and extra curricular activities at The Sele School.     

British Values at The Sele School.

Prevention of radicalisation and extremism 

The Sele School is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all our students. We recognise that safeguarding against radicalisation is no different to safeguarding against any other vulnerability. All staff at The Sele School uphold and promote fundamental British Values and must report any concerns.

  • Our SMSC provision is embedded across the curriculum, details of which can be found on the website, it directs our assemblies and underpins our school ethos. It is recognised that children with low aspirations are more vulnerable to radicalisation and we therefore strive to equip our students with confidence, self-belief, respect and tolerance, as well as setting high standards and expectations for themselves.
  •  Students are regularly taught how to stay safe when using the internet and are encouraged to recognise that people aren't always who they day they are online. They are taught to always seek adult help if they are upset or concerned by anything they have read or seen on the internet.
  • Staff at The Sele School have a learning focus, build relationships and encourage students to take responsibility, teachers calmly explain when students behaviour has failed to meet expectations and emphasis is placed on putting things right so that progress, learning and personal development is assured.

School Ethos   

Our School Ethos is built on three key values

  •  Belief in everyone
  •  Achievement for all
  •  Excellence is our goal 

The Sele School aims to develop responsible young people of whom all can be proud, who have achieved more than they ever believed possible and who make a positive contribution to their local, national and global communities.

Our approach is underpinned by our key values; the belief that learning transforms lives, that everyone can achieve and that high expectations result in the achievement of excellence.
