They will:

• Speak and act with care: always show compassion and respect for children. • Act boldly: be ambitious for yourself and the children and young people we serve. • Learn from adversity: be evaluative, thoughtful and reflective. • Challenge convention: be curious, welcome difference and unfamiliar thinking. • Connect with others: support colleagues, parents and pupils to make a great team. • Use your voice: offer different views and ask questions. • Do what it takes: be relentless in pursuing the best for children. • Ask for support: be open and honest when plans go awry. • Don’t give up: be calm, resilient and measured when managing challenges.
