About Aldridge – The Way we Work
We are entrepreneurial and our passion for high quality, inclusive education drives our work. We have shared goals and shared approaches which are tailored for the local context. We help each of our schools and colleges to define how best to achieve those goals for their community.
We encourage students, staff and members of the local community to develop a passion for learning as well as an entrepreneurial mindset, enabling people to help take responsibility for their own futures and their neighbourhoods. Our values are the entrepreneurial attributes that we help our students to develop – creativity, passion, determination, problem-solving, risk-taking and teamwork.
We want all our schools to be ambitious and entrepreneurial – inside and outside the classroom, in strategic planning and everyday activity. This means that the emphasis on entrepreneurial thinking provides context for all the learning that takes place and every aspect of academic life. Staff make a commitment to supporting entrepreneurial behaviours, and to acting as a role model by using these behaviours themselves in their work.
