Our Core Principles

Our Core Principles

These principles show how our values should manifest in practice. This is how we fulfil our core purpose and realise our core vision. These are our mutual responsibilities and commitments as fellow members of Anglian Learning. The principles must be applied but require a level of contextual interpretation. They must inform our decision-making and shape how we act, at school level, centrally and collectively.
