At Meoncross we have a clear Mission Statement which is underpinned by our seven core values which have been agreed by all members of our School Community.
Academic Excellence – At Meoncross School we aim to support every child to develop a life-long passion for learning and to help them build the self-confidence, resilience and determination necessary to achieve their full academic potential.
Global Perspective – At Meoncross School we aim to help children develop a better understanding, awareness and respect for different countries, cultures, beliefs and worldviews to prepare them more effectively to take advantage of the opportunities, and rise to the challenges, of living in an increasingly globalised society.
Character Education – At Meoncross School we aim to nurture in each child a deep understanding and appreciation of the school’s core values as a foundation for them on which to build happy, successful and fulfilling lives and allow them to contribute positively to society, in order to build a better world.
For each of our core values, we have written a ‘descriptor’ sentence in order to more clearly define the meaning of each value, within the context of the school. These values fully encapsulate the ethos of the school and they are an incredibly powerful foundation on which to build our new character development programme for students – Values2Virtues.
We always do the right thing, even when it is difficult.
We look after each other, work as a team and enjoy being part of a caring community.
We believe in ourselves and see setbacks as opportunities to try and try again.
We are happy, confident and enthusiastic learners.
We thrive on challenge and always aim to succeed.
We are generous in thought, word and action.
We are curious and excited about our learning, prepared to take risks and try new things.
We strive to understand the challenges faced by each child by getting to know them very well. Our staff keep a close eye on the progress of each individual, discussing them by name at regular formal and informal meetings. Only in this way can we tailor the support we offer them because every child has their own challenges to overcome. We strive to help them as individuals rather than as a cohort. To this end, we introduce academic mentors as they enter the Upper School. Most importantly, we look to celebrate their successes in school or outside it; supporting them to achieve their ambitions.
The quality of our teaching throughout all academic years has been independently judged as ‘outstanding’ and is underpinned by meticulous planning to ensure that our high standards of academic attainment are maintained. When you combine this with our approach to building a lifelong set of values and a determined work ethic, it is small wonder that we are proud of our leavers.
