Aims and values

Ibstock Community College believes that every student, no matter what their starting point, should have access to the same opportunities as their peers. Our broad curriculum and enrichment opportunities are the vehicles to achieve this. At Ibstock our aim is to develop and encourage all students to be well rounded members of the community equipped for the next stage in their education and beyond.

Underpinning our ethos is mutual respect, built from trusting relationships between our staff and students, parents and carers, our governing body, our local community and partner schools. We communicate with each other calmly, politely and respectfully.

All students embrace their learning opportunities in a positive way. They have a thirst for knowledge and actively participate in engaging lessons, where they develop detailed subject knowledge. Teachers and support staff encourage them to be independent whilst offering personalised support when required. They give feedback and advice for improving and developing further.

Across the college teachers set high expectations of effort and behaviour in the classroom. Communication with parents ensures that everyone is working towards the same goal.

All students are well cared for, supported and helped to develop resilience and good mental health. They are open minded, tolerant and well informed young people who add value to the college, their families and the wider community.

All students enjoy a safe learning environment where anti-social behaviour of any kind is always challenged. They care for the college, making the most of the well maintained buildings and facilities. They are proud to wear their school uniform and are great ambassadors for our college.
