Message from the Principal
This term we’ve been thinking about what it means to be a coherent community. At Derby Moor, it means that we value each other and make sure that we feel safe. Being part of a community also means that we are part of something bigger. It’s not just about the individual, but about all of us together.
We show that we are an effective community by having respect for one another, and by showing that we value each other through our actions. This can be small gestures such as holding a door open, or greeting someone in the morning. We can also show it by supporting one another to achieve our absolute best in all things. As we move to Year 11’s final few days at school before their exams, we can show this by supporting them at what is often a stressful time.
Parents also have their part to play in this. You help us be an effective community by supporting our ethos, values and aims, and also by ensuring that your child meets our expectations. If you ever have a concern about this or have difficulty in doing this, please make sure you contact the school at your earliest opportunity.
I really enjoyed the Charity week we had before Easter. That really was a fantastic example of “community” in action. We raised nearly £2000 for our nominated charities which are St Trizah School in Kenya, Cancer Research and Smile a local respite facility for children.
