Our Ethos

The word ‘Sikh’ means learner and as such the learner and the learner’s journey is at the heart of The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton ethos. Our ethos is informed by principles that are both British and Sikh in the hope that, by drawing from two cultural traditions, we can begin to work towards a more integrated Britain.

The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton is built upon the three principles of Sikhi: Kirat Karna, Naap Japna and Vand Shakna;

Kirat Karna means to live an honest life and be hardworking.  At TKAT we have translated this into
TOGETHER AS ONE, WE WILL WORK HARD TO EXCEED EXPECTATIONS through;
Service & Resilience.

Naam Japna means to meditate and recite God's name. We have translated this into
TOGETHER AS ONE WE WILL DISCOVER OUR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL JOURNEY through;
Truth & Courage.

Vand Chakna means to contribute and share within our wider community. We have translated this into
TOGETHER AS ONE, WE WILL LIVE LIFE IN HARMONY WITH ALL OTHERS through;
Compassion, Altruism & Love

These are delivered through the virtues curriculum alongside British Values in assemblies, PSHCE and the curriculum.
