Values & Vision


Our vision at the Haven is for our pupils to raise the aspirations they set for themselves and that they learn to see that academic, personal and social goals are achievable. Where teachers, leaders and support professionals raise expectations to provide a system where the importance of education is understood and valued by all and a love of learning is nurtured. By creating an environment where pupils feel safe and valued as individuals, they can thrive and are able to achieve their potential. They therefore develop the social and emotional skills that enable them to make a positive contribution to society.


Everybody is respected-Each individual is unique and has unique needs. 

High aspirations -We aspire to meet the individual needs of all our pupils and our pupils aspire to be the very best they can. 

Pupils feel safe and valued in school-A safe nurturing community is essential for academic success. 

Making mistakes is okay- Pupils are encouraged to try tricky tasks and stretch themselves to make mistakes and learn from them.

Learning is possible-Every pupil is supported and any barriers to learning minimalised so that they can fulfil their potential. 

Be kind-Service to others is a basic duty of all our community. 

Learn to trust- Developing trust in each other is at the heart of our work.
