Our Values and Vision

Mission and Vision - our school

'Furze Platt is a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school providing an outstanding education for all.'

Highly ambitious

Furze Platt sets the highest aspirations for its students and staff. We want students to work hard in and out of school, to set themselves demanding goals, and to achieve highly. They should progress on to competitive courses at leading universities, including Russell Group and Oxbridge, or into challenging and fulfilling careers, through rigorous apprenticeships or further study.

High-achieving

Furze Platt students enjoy great success in all aspects of their education - academic, practical, sporting, creative and vocational. We want students to value, enjoy and succeed in their lessons, courses and qualifications and to always be the best they can be. Furze Platt aims always to be amongst the highest-achieving schools locally and nationally for student attainment and progress.

Fully inclusive

Furze Platt is proud of the diverse community it serves. We seek to bring out the best in boys and girls, and those of different faiths and ethnic backgrounds. We want all to achieve extremely highly, the result of an accepting, tolerant and inclusive environment. Students are challenged and supported in their learning, whatever their starting points, both in and out of lessons. All are pushed to make the most of their abilities, achieve their potential and succeed at university or further education, in their careers, and in life.

 Outstanding education

Furze Platt provides a first-class education for all students. Our broad and deep core curriculum is supported by significant wider opportunities, academic, sporting, practical, creative and vocational, both in and outside school.  Our hard-working students are taught by highly-skilled and passionate subject experts in a vibrant atmosphere of learning. Our state of the art facilities and resources are maintained to the highest standard.

Values - our community – students, staff, governors, parents

Above all, members of Furze Platt community are:

Aspiring

Motivated

Confident

Considerate

Aspiring

Furze Platt students have high standards and high expectations. They want to succeed in lessons and in their qualifications, and to use their educational achievements in order to succeed in further or university education, in their careers, and in life.

 Motivated

Furze Platt students see learning and personal growth not just as a means to qualifications, further education, university study and successful careers, but as ends in themselves. They have the intrinsic enthusiasm and desire to achieve their personal best. They use this also to motivate others, and to create a climate of shared endeavour, both in the classroom and through wider learning opportunities.

Confident

Furze Platt students understand that ‘every accomplishment begins with the decision to try,’ but that success does not always come easily or immediately. They have the confidence to see failure as part of the learning journey, and to use their reflectiveness and resilience to learn from past mistakes. Our students learn and communicate confidently, and help develop confidence in others.

Considerate

Furze Platt students are kind and caring. They show empathy, understanding and respect to all those around them. They collaborate well and happily with others, and participate in school and wider community events. They are ambitious but not ruthless, and work to ensure the success of others as well as themselves. They respect and take care of their current future environment.
