School Values

Our circle of values was created following extensive consultation with all students, parents, governors and staff.



Our Values Statement


At The Ongar Academy, we put our school motto, Affectare ad Optimum (‘Aspire to Greatness’) into practice by providing all students with the support they need to become strong, ambitious and aspirational learners.


In the knowledge that success travels after risk, we foster resilience, embrace challenges and value the opportunity to reflect and learn from our mistakes as well as our successes.


We expect all individuals to respect themselves, others and their environment.


We value integrity and the ability for all to be true to their word, trustworthy and honourable.


We value and contribute to the wider community in which we live and work.


We aim to encapsulate and respect British Values and Inspire Excellence in all that we do.
