School Ethos and values
The culture and ethos at Long Calderwood is inspired by the convention of the rights of the child. Rights and responsibilities are at the heart of everything we do and our school motto is: Imagine and achieve This motto has inspired us to create a mural for the dining room wall in our school. We have worked together as a school community to create a set of values, mainly based on the Olympic and Paralympic values.
Respect - Value the rights of others and expect the same back.
Excellence - Achieve the best you can and always do better than the last time.
Friendship Be there for others; listen, trust and respect them and expect the same back.
Courage - Have faith to face even the most difficult of challenges.
Determination - Never give up; do what you set out to do and achieve it.
Inspiration - Show everyone what can be done and let them show you.
Equality - Give everyone the same rights regardless of their race, colour, gender, language, religion, politics, and nationality, social class, place of birth or disability.
Compassion - Help and care for people, including those we do not know.
