Our Ethos

 Our ethos is to promote the philosophy of ‘Ubuntu’. This is a Zulu word that is rooted in a belief in humanity and the concept of "I am because we are". This means that at Venture Academy:

  • We try to view and treat others in the way we wish to be viewed and treated
  • We understand and demonstrate that we all have a right to belong to our school community
  • We all have a right to happiness, safety and healthy friendships/relationships
  • We are all responsible for our Academy and its people
  • We accept that the people who come and go in our lives, help to shape who we are or might become
  • We try to take both successes and disappointments as opportunities for personal development and growth
  • We engage in restorative practices as both adults and children, where needed
Our Core Values as an Academy Trust
  • Compassion - we focus on the positives and the opportunities
  • Ambition - we challenge ourselves (learners, families and staff) to go further and be our best self
  • Partnership - we are better when we work together as a team around any child and our school
