Ethos and Values


We are passionate about our values of T.E.A.M. (Tenacity, Empathy, Aspiration and Motivation). We believe that these values underpin a successful school and expect our staff and students to demonstrate our values both in and out of school, showing that they are proud to be part of TEAM Saltash.

In our day-to-day working, we expect students to focus on their learning, demonstrating the TEAM values. 

We define these as: 

At Saltash Community School, we actively promote positive, inclusive values. These include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect for and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. We believe British values are those values expected of anyone living in Britain, regardless of their nationality, culture or religious belief.

Our TEAM ethos reflects these values. We place great emphasis on building positive relationships in school, amongst the students themselves and between staff and students. We strongly believe students should not merely be taught such values but that they are embedded into school life.

We strive to support our students to develop into confident, happy, successful young adults who have empathy towards and an understanding of those less fortunate than themselves.

The information below reflects how Saltash Community School works to promote positive values through the TEAM ethos and life of the school, for example through a broad and balanced curriculum, and through social, moral, cultural and spiritual development.
