What are our academy values and why are they important ?
Our Academy's Values are the principles and beliefs that we hold to be important in guiding the behaviour and decision-making of our community. Chobham Academy values are: Inclusion, Curiosity, Honesty, Empathy, Excellence and Respect (I CHEER) . These values are important because they help to create a positive and safe learning environment for students and staff,. They also serve as a foundation for building strong relationships and fostering a sense of community within the academy. Additionally, when students learn and practice these values, they are better prepared to become responsible and contributing members of society.
When students learn and practice the values of the academy, it can also have a positive impact on their personal development. Values such as honesty, respect, and fairness can help students develop strong moral character and prepare them to become responsible and contributing members of society.
