Our Vision and Values

Our values represent who we are, what we do and how we do things at Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy. At OIEA, we demonstrate our CARE values:

Courage is the ability to face the unknown with bravery and determination. It takes courage to try new things, take risks, and pursue your dreams. Courageous people inspire others and set an example for what is possible. OIEA students are Courageous.

Ambition is the drive and motivation to achieve great things. It is the desire to constantly improve and challenge ourselves to be the best that we can be. Ambitious people are not content with mediocrity, they strive for excellence. OIEA students are Ambitious.

Respect is the foundation of all healthy relationships. It involves treating others with kindness, empathy, and understanding, regardless of differences in opinions, beliefs, or backgrounds. When we show respect for others, we create an environment of trust and mutual appreciation. OIEA students are Respectful.

Excellence is the pursuit of the highest standards of quality and performance in everything we do. It means striving for perfection and adopting a mindset of continuous improvement. Excellence requires dedication, hard work, and a desire learn. OIEA students are Excellent.

We use strategic anchors to keep us focused on what is most important to our school community. Each anchor has it’s own vision that when achieved, will make OIEA the best school it can be.
