Our Values

 

The school has seven key values that inform the school’s assembly programme; Collective Worship Programme and are the cornerstones for everything we do in school especially our core purpose of teaching and learning.

Our values are:

  • Compassion: Compassion is about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes and experiencing what they experience. This leads to a desire to act to do something. Compassion requires an act of imagination and humility to share in the lives of others

“It is so important to have compassion in all aspects of life. So many great chances for the better have been made out of compassion for all”

  • Forgiveness: Forgiveness is fundamental in a Christian School. It is about having forgiveness at the heart of everything we do and it is our aim to keep on forgiving without limit. Forgiveness requires both an acceptance and acknowledgement of what has gone wrong and a genuine desire not to do it again.

“A fundamental part of community is to forgive and forget”

  • Justice: Justice is multi-faceted. It is about giving all people what is right and fair for them to have such as freedom and dignity. It is about acting out of a concern for what is right and therefore holding people to account. Justice is about creating a community that knows everyone’s well-being is bound up with that of everyone else and is not just about a culture which encourages everyone to insist on their own rights at the expense of others.

“A school has to be a place of mutual trust and support where all members know they are equally valued – central to Justice”

  • Koinonia: Can often be translated as ‘Fellowship’ or ’Partnership’.  Koinonia expresses the quality of the relationships within a Christian Community which are like those of a family. Central to any family is interdependence. Everyone is needed and valued and important to the whole group. Each member of the family shares the joys and sufferings of the others and everyone depends upon everyone else.

“Being part of a Church community makes life at school seem more fulfilled”. 

  • Perseverance: Perseverance is linked to patience and suffering. Perseverance is about developing and building your character by dealing with a range of situations positively. It is linked to self-control and a recognition that life is sometimes difficult and painful and it is important not to give up. Perseverance is only possible when there is hope and hope is based on love and faithfulness.

“Perseverance is important in school and in life. People need to know that things are not easy but it is important to keep going”.

  • Wisdom:  Wisdom is insight into the way life works – a proper understanding of the consequences of our thoughts words and actions. Wisdom is discernment gained through life experience. The opposite of wisdom is foolishness, which is a wrong understanding of life. Foolishness is a lack of recognition of the true value of things and leads to people putting their trust in the wrong things.

“School is not just about academic learning; it is also about becoming wise as a human”

  • Learning: Learning is at the centre of our school motto and encompasses all of the values above. It is about being taught, being able to discover and understand. By modelling, teaching and discussing each of the values above we are enabling ourselves and our pupils to achieve our motto of ‘Learning to live life to the full’.

“Learning is an important Value to me because it is constant and central to life. To be able to learn from mistakes is something that is essential to life”

Holocaust Memorial Day 2018

39932767071_fd2523dfd3_h

On Friday 26th January, Brockington College commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 through a variety of events, reflecting this year’s theme ‘the power of words.’

  • Tutor groups throughout the week have created luggage tags (reminiscent of those tags used to label children on the kindergarten transport – 10,000 children evacuated from Germany to Britain in 1938) with words of reflection. These were included in a HMD day in the courtyard of the school. Pupils, staff members and visitors have been visiting the display throughout the day reflecting the stories of 25 individuals
  • All pupils and teaching staff have been watching Jewish survivor testimonials at the end of each lesson, from survivors who were children during the Holocaust. Year 9 pupils took part in a live testimonial webcast from the Holocaust Educational Trust, hearing the story of Janine Webber BEM and her journey of escape and hiding in occupied Poland.
  • Year 9 pupils have been given the opportunity to take part in workshops ran by Holocaust educator Mary Mihovilovic from the Holocaust Educational Trust, on choices, reading the lives of Jewish communities and families throughout Europe in the 1930’s and memory and the importance of reflection.

Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 has given staff, pupils and parents of Brockington College a chance to reflect and consider the events of the Holocaust and how the power of words can affect and influence those around us.

Photos from the day can be found here.

Latest Ofsted Report

Ofsted_Banner

Our latest Ofsted inspection took place on November 1st and 2nd 2017 and we are delighted to have retained our ‘good’ grading. This has been achieved against the backdrop of age range change, which has resulted in a 35% increase in pupils, members of staff and buildings over the past two years. Additionally, our subject teams have had to write two Key Stage 4 curriculums as the government has introduced new GCSE specifications nationally. We have achieved good GCSE grades and have retained our outstanding values and ethos through this period of change. Governors and leaders are proud of our achievements, but determined to continue to develop excellence at the college.
