It is my great privilege to be able to introduce you to the Market Weighton School. We are a small school, proud of our traditional rural heritage, yet ambitious for the future of all our students. Our size is a real strength as it enables students and their families to work closely with the teaching and support staff at the school, building positive working relationships over an extended period of time. We believe that students achieve best in a supportive and positive environment – and that is what you will find in our school. We hope that you will find these pages helpful, please contact the school should you wish to receive further information.
Mr R Harrison
Our aims are for students to: Have the skills and confidence to thrive in a changing world. Have the independence and resilience to take charge of their own learning and lives. Become active and responsible as local and global citizens. Have unlimited aspirations.
In order to achieve these aims we will seek as a school to: Provide outstanding learning opportunities to meet individual needs. Challenge all students to achieve ambitious personal goals. Expect the highest standards of behaviour and mutual respect. Establish meaningful relationships with our parents and the wider community. Deliver up to date professional development for our staff.
Values and Ethos Statement
All we do at The Market Weighton School is underpinned by our 6 core values; Respect, Honesty, Compassion, Resilience, Industry and Courage as represented by the 6 Knight’s Spurs on the school crest.
Respect Respect for self, others and our environment, the foundation of our school values.
Honesty Be truthful to yourself and others, positive relationships are built on honesty and trust.
Compassion Caring for those less fortunate, treat others as you would want to be treated yourself, never bully or make fun of others misfortune.
Resilience The ability to keep going in the face of setbacks. Learn from mistakes and maintain a positive mind-set. Believe that you can achieve your goals.
Industry Success comes with hard work, always give your best and you will feel proud of what you achieve. Strive to make your best even better.
Courage Dare to dream, set ambitious goals for an aspirational future; stand up for what you believe is right.
All our students follow a curriculum that focuses on academic as well as personal qualities, including student’s social and emotional development. The school views both strands as complementary and as such prepares students for the society into which they will emerge, a society marked by rapid technological and social change.
We believe that all students have an entitlement to a knowledge rich curriculum regardless of ability or background. We have an inclusive ethos adapting the curriculum to meet the needs of all our students.
Student wellbeing is paramount and students benefit from positive relationships with staff. As a result, students feel secure and able to focus on their learning.
