Values & Ethos

Our values are encapsulated by our ethos statement: 

At Birchwood, we are part of something special, welcoming all, supporting all, and encouraging all. Together, we enjoy the exploration of ideas, the excitement of learning, and the celebration of our achievements in a school where we feel safe. 
Your dreams, your future, our challenge

We are a school where everyone is welcomed, supported and celebrated every step of the way. We are rightly proud of our inclusive and comprehensive ethos, where every student can thrive and succeed. 

We expect each member of our community to share in our values by showing mutual respect and tolerance.  Part of learning together is respecting and following rules that keep everyone safe and allow everyone to learn in a respectful, calm and happy environment.  We work with students to ensure that they understand and can meet our expectations and our behaviour for learning model  - Rights, Rules and Rewards.
