We are fortunate enough to be following the Sycol (www.sycol.com) education programme – a three year plan that is instrumental in supporting us as we continuously seek to innovate and improve what we do. As part of this, our school staff and governors have worked together to agree on a clear and challenging vision, mission and set of core values that are now firmly established at the heart of everything we do. This is our culture manifesto, and we use it to drive innovation and continuous improvement within our organisation. With Sycol, we will build, embed and sustain our intended culture of high-performance and trust. You may have noticed some of our staff wearing Sycol lanyards! These indicate the staff leading the Sycol programme within our organisation. A Green lanyard indicates a leader in their first year of Sycol; Blue that they are in their second year and Black (belt) that they are in their third year. If you would like to learn more about this exciting programme and maybe get involved, please do not hesitate to ask any one of the Sycol leads.
