In order to achieve goals and aims, one strives and endeavours to attain certain actions, however such actions will not be undertaken at the expense of core values.

Values have a major influence on a person’s behaviour and attitude and serve as guidelines in all situations. * They are ideals and beliefs shared by members of a culture about what is good or bad, desirable or undesirable. * Values offer a moral code to follow.
How schools demonstrate and uphold their aims and values:
Aims in schools are set out to follow guidelines and attain what the schools desire to achieve. The schools strive to exceed their personal objectives. The aims and objectives of the schools are set by the Head Teacher, working closely together with, parents, staff, the community and sometimes the children of the schools.
Although schools mostly share the same aims and objectives, they may differ slightly as schools set out there own goals.
It is important for schools to communicate with others their aims and objectives as much as possible, as this gives parents and others the opportunity to gain an impression of the schools in question. This can be done through school prospectuses, school website, and open evenings/days.
The schools can also demonstrate their aims by developing links with local communities where they work to develop the aims to improve pupil’s education and environment.
Looking at one school in particular, we can see how they communicate and set their aims, and whether they do this successfully.
