Vision and Aims

Our vision to ‘Inspire Excellence Champion Potential – Celebrate Achievement’ is central to our core purpose and desire to make a difference. In the pursuit of this we are wholly committed to the values and aims that we hold central to achieving this. These are demonstrated through our:

  • persistence to provide an outstanding teaching and learning environment for all where achievement is recognised and celebrated;
  • determination to inspire a love for learning and a culture of collaboration and communication where barriers are challenged;
  • recognition of every individual’s potential and ensuring a personalised education to nurture this;
  • commitment to secure independence at all levels for each and every learner in preparation for life beyond school and adulthood;
  • promise to value and respect individuality and promote well-being through acceptance and belonging;
  • responsibility to place our learners and their families at the centre of their decision-making;
  • dedication to partnership working internally, externally and nationally so we can deliver a truly integrated approach; and
  • ambition to become a hub of excellence within Haringey delivering training and research in the field of autism.


Heartlands’ SEARCH for Success Ethos

The principles and core values we hold are still very much part of the mainstream school ethos and are reflected in the whole school’s SEARCH for Success Ethos where we promote:

SCHOOL MATTERS: We all take pride in our school and its vision
EFFORT: We all work hard and try our best at all times
ACHIEVEMENT: We all strive for academic, personal and collaborative achievements
RESPONSIBILITY: We all take responsibility to develop ourselves and others
COMMUNITY: We all participate and make a positive contribution to our communities
HIGH ASPIRATIONS: We all set challenging goals and work hard to achieve them

We run six SEARCH days across the academic year. On these days, we drop the daily timetable and there are whole-provision activities that focus on developing personal and collaborative achievements and skills. The aim is to support and embed the SEARCH ethos and celebrate these aspects of learning.
