Our REACH values
We are proud to be part of the really successful Gladesmore Community School. There are many reasons for our success including the shared respect staff and students have for each other. This promotes our positive atmosphere. We show great enthusiasm for learning and are constantly aiming to improve on what we do in order to exceed our previous best. We are very proud of our ambitious attitude and we warmly applaud commitment and progress. We are eager for our staff to provide a first class education so that we continue to achieve high standards. We value life and want all of us to make a valuable contribution to society. We are all unique. A strong feature of our school is the way we respect our differences and use them to make our education richer. We want a school where we support each other to develop good social skills and through the spirit of cooperation we help each other to succeed. We want a school where we are able to concentrate when we need to and enjoy learning. We want to develop as independent learners and make progress through hardwork and commitment. We want the Gladesmore community to be kind and friendly and able to have fun at the proper times. Importantly, we also want our school environment to be safe.
The members of our highly skilled staff reflect the positive goals of our school community and really care about our success both now and for the future. They are always looking for better ways of promoting learning and are keen to help us work well with each other and on our own.
We want others to recognise students who went to Gladesmore as people noted for their: Respect; Enthusiasm; Attitude; Cooperation; and, Hardwork who aim high and continue to REACH for their best and be the best they can throughout their lives.
In order to achieve our School Vision we have 4 School Goals that set out the focus for our work.
We undertake a process of rigorous on-going self-evaluation. This informs our School Development Plan (SDP) which guides our actions to generate continuous improvement. We are a forward looking school, always looking to improve the quality of what we do and to build on our previous best.
