Mission Statement

Our Mission

An excellent healthy learning community develops through a sporting ethos where everyone can realise their potential by acquiring knowledge, lifelong learning skills and a resilience to manage change.

'It is not the strongest of species that survive, or the most intelligent but the one most responsive to change'.

Charles Darwin

Our Purpose

The Rawlett School is at the heart of a community where everyone strives for their personal best and to be the best that they can be. A positive learning environment of mutual respect supports all learners both physically, and academically.

'Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill'.

Muhammad Ali

Our Values

People

People are central to change – caring teachers who focus on learning and success in a nurturing respectful environment. Achievement is essential but development of the whole person will help every person realise their full potential. The health and wellbeing of the individual is paramount and we aim to promote healthy lifestyles across the whole community.

To achieve true success you need to enjoy what you do. Everyone has a unique contribution to make towards our learning community. Families, neighbours and members of our community (local and international) shape our future and direction. Collaboration is possible when everyone has skills to make a positive contribution to the community. You need to have the confidence to take managed risks and a creative vision to think ‘outside the box’.

People need opportunities to work in teams with individuals who embrace innovation, change and challenge. Life is, at times, risky and our aim is to prepare people not just for the world of work (economic wellbeing) but also for living life as a whole – individuals who will ask questions, seek solutions and make informed decisions.

Purpose

Learning is fun and lifelong! Everyone in the academy continues their learning – whether it be students, staff or member of the local community. We aspire to create a learning environment where everyone wants to learn and create opportunities to meet the needs of every individual through personalised learning programmes.

Every learner must have the potential to access an appropriate curriculum in order to develop skills essential to achieve success in the 21st century. The success of our community will be achieved through the development of leaders who are confident and effective at every level in the academy. Athletes aim for excellence and accept nothing less and Rawlett strive for excellence by expecting the highest standards of work, behaviour and commitment to academy life from all our learners.

Partnership

As part of a local and international community we aim to encourage healthy lifestyles, economic wellbeing and spiritual development through extended learning opportunities.

Partnership builds strength and we aim to listen and respond to the views of all community stakeholders. Success is a result of individuals taking responsibility for their own learning as well as the learning of others. We rely on each other and need to respect ourselves and others, be self disciplined and insist upon behaviour that supports the whole team.

Everyone is different and we value the creativity and the potential individuals can bring to a team. We will promote individuality and embrace diversity. We will not tolerate discrimination and social exclusion but seek equal opportunity for all. Individuals will only thrive in a safe learning environment.
