Our Vision for Coleraine Grammar School is to provide a safe environment, with clear boundaries, in which every child is provided with high quality learning opportunities and is inspired to develop a life-long love of learning. Each child is encouraged to develop academic, emotional and physical aspects of their lives within a moral, spiritual and values based framework. This enables pupils to grow as individuals and achieve success in their lives now and in the future. We seek to encourage accountability for actions and solve problems by looking for positive solutions.
Our Core value is RESPECT for self, others and property
R – Responsibility
We are all responsible and accountable for the choices we make. We realise that with choices come consequences and in addition to accepting the consequences of our actions we take steps to put things right when things go wrong. We expect all members of the school community to be truthful and honest in all that they do, to know the difference between right and wrong and to have the moral courage to do the right thing.We care for those who are in difficulty and who are hurting, recognising that the world does not exist for us alone.
E – Equality
Every person in our school is of equal worth. We show the same respect to everyone.
S – Self-discipline
We are all responsible for controlling our emotions and impulses. We expect everyone to adhere to school rules.Each member of the school community should be loyal in both words and deeds to each other and to the school.
P – Perseverance
Everyone is encouraged never to give up, to treat setbacks as learning experiences and a step towards success. We believe that through building resilience we can develop in confidence, take hold of opportunities, and be independent and successful citizens. We seek to develop the skills to allow us to be independent lifelong learners.
E – Excellence
Everyone gives of their very best at all times and encourages others to fulfil their potential without being critical or jealous of their efforts. We strive for high standards in all areas of life.
C – Commitment
Each member of the community is committed to:
- the school’s caring ethos;
- respect for all members of the community
- high standards of behaviour based on self-discipline
- working diligently towards the highest level of attainment and,
- striving to find ways to fulfil, and help others to fulfill, their potential.
T – Tolerance
We treat everyone the same way. We appreciate that everyone is different and we celebrate our diversity. The School has a broad Christian ethos and this provides a moral compass for our work but no denomination is favoured and all pupils from any faith or none are warmly welcomed.
