Our values guide the decisions we make every day:
RESPECT FOR OTHERS - Show respect for and value all individuals for their diverse backgrounds, experiences, styles, approaches, ideas and beliefs.
TRUST - We build trust through responsible actions and honesty.
PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY - Take personal accountability for behaviour, actions, words and results.
SOLUTION FOCUSED - Focus on finding solutions and achieving great things.
CAN DO ATTITUDE - Adopt a determined attitude and work hard to get the job done.
COLLABORATION - We achieve more when we work together, support each other and collaborate.
COMMITMENT TO SELF AND OTHERS - Personal commitment to success and wellbeing of others in your class or team.
RESILIENCE - We strive harder and are more determined to overcome challenges.
PRIDE - Be proud of being part of Team Lydiate, celebrating your own and others' success.
COMMUNICATION - Communicate effectively and listen to one another for understanding and compassion.
Our core values bind our community together and provide us with a common purpose.
We believe these values underpin the outstanding achievements of our students and staff. Deyes High School recognises the importance of developing the ‘whole child’ and our core values reflect the aspirations of all members of our learning community.
We believe that future citizens will be defined as much by their values as by their achievements and qualifications. We offer supportive pastoral care that embodies the core values. We provide guidance and a range of experiences designed to nurture our students towards valuing themselves, the school and their community.
