The values that we promote in The Galaxy Trust define who we are.
It is vital that as well as teaching the core skills of reading, writing and maths to a high academic standard, we also prepare our children to be good citizens in the world in which they currently live, and the wider world that is awaiting them as they approach adulthood.
Having RESPECT for themselves, their friends and families and their community is a fundamental duty. Taking RESPONSIBILITY for their own actions, as well as accepting responsibility when things go wrong is a tough value to live by, but we continue to try. The value of EQUALITY recognises that in order for us all to have the chance to achieve the best, sometimes we all need to approach things differently, with varying levels of support and intervention. Just because we are treated the same, doesn’t make our approach equal.
Our Galaxy Trust values of Respect, Responsibility and Equality are non-negotiable and run like blood through the veins of each school. Whilst it is, of course, important for each school to be defined using their own values and vision, it is also a pre-requisite for any school joining our Trust, that they will fully endorse and adopt these three key values.
