Ethos & Values

The core purpose of Derby Moor is summarised in our school motto “Together we succeed”.  This motto is underpinned by our four values:

  • Achievement – we believe that every student, regardless of background or personal circumstance can achieve.
  • Aspiration– we believe that strong achievement is grounded in the best teaching and learning experience, which ensures that all students will aspire to be the best they can be.  We are committed to continuing professional development so that all staff members are supported to be the best they can be.
  • High Expectations– we have high expectations of students, both in terms of achievement and behaviour.
  • Community– we create and support a sense of belonging so that all members of the school community feel valued and are kept safe.
