'Pupils’ relationships are shaped by the ACHIEVE values of the school, which stands for 'Ambitious, Collaborative, Happy, Integrity, Endurance, Versatility, Excellence’.' Ofsted 2021

Above all, our vision is that members of the Furze Platt community consistently ACHIEVE, through being:

Furze Platt students have high standards and high expectations. They see learning and personal growth as important attributes for life, not just as a means to qualifications, further education, university study and successful careers. 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.

Furze Platt students collaborate well with others and participate in school and wider community events. They are ambitious and work to ensure the success of others as well as themselves. Students are effective leaders, communicators and strong team players.

Furze Platt students are proud of their school and look forward to attending. They are optimistic about their futures and confident in their abilities to achieve their goals. Students are respectful and kind to everyone, celebrating each other’s commonalities and differences. All enjoy a common sense of purpose, with everyone being able to play to their strengths and contribute to community wellbeing. Furze Platt students take joy from growing and succeeding together.

Furze Platt students always accept responsibility for their actions and choices. They consistently hold themselves, individually and collectively, accountable for their own success and that of others. They are honest, trustworthy and fair in all they do, whether it be in the classroom, on the sports field or in the wider community. They respect and take care of their current and future environments.

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.

Furze Platt students are prepared for and adapt to broad ranging situations and challenges, always showing organisation and initiative. They are aware that the world around them, including employment opportunities are constantly evolving and are developing the necessary skills to succeed. Students appreciate that every new experience is an opportunity to innovate and grow.

Being Ambitious, Collaborative and Happy, having Integrity and showing Endurance and Versatility all lead to:

Furze Platt students strive to achieve their best in everything that they do. Excellence is expected of every student, regardless of age or background. Students understand that they are what they repeatedly do and that excellence is a habit. Furze Platt students value and are valued by everyone in the community. They have a love of learning and are inspired to succeed.
