Values and Vision
Glebelands School aims to have an outstanding curriculum that encourages students to be independent academics. It values pupils who respect others, including people in the local community. The school pushes students to work hard to achieve excellent exam results. Staff aim to help every student, by getting to know them as individuals and pushing them to pursue their dreams. Both academic and personal development is valued. Teachers aim to discover the talents and skills each child has.
“Students’ achievement is good overall. Most teaching is good or better and, as a result, the majority of students make good progress from their starting points. A relatively high proportion of teaching is outstanding. Students’ behaviour around the school and in most classes is good. They respond well to the encouragement of staff and know the importance of the school’s motto ‘respect and achieve’. The school’s senior leaders and governors are totally committed to improving the school. Their passion and determination have brought about significant improvements in achievement, attendance and behaviour. The great majority of students have positive attitudes to learning and enjoy their lessons.”
