At Aspire Academy we feel it is very important that all students know the values we try to live out on a daily basis. As a result of this the first RE lesson of the year is all about our academy values of Forgiveness, Endurance and Community.
In their tutor groups the students have discussed what the values mean to them and come up with their own definitions as well as discussing which value they think is the most important. This has led to great reflective discussions on when they have forgiven each other, when they showed endurance last year and how they worked as a community. Students have also set themselves targets for this coming year, detailing how they will show they are living out our values.
