Our values and ethos at Lilleshall Primary School are to provide all our children with the very best education through developing a lifelong love of learning. We have high aspirations for all children and high expectations of all members of our school community. We aim to provide a stimulating, attractive and safe environment for our children to learn in. Where all members of the school community feel valued and respected. High standards of participation, work and behaviour are insisted upon to enable everyone to reach their full potential. Working together for excellence and enjoyment we aim create an environment that provides challenging, motivating and memorable experiences, which will excite and engage pupils in their learning.
Our Ambition is to make our school a place which enables all our pupils to be confident and successful people, with a love of learning, a sense of curiosity and motivation and a desire to be a positive, active part of the community. We are about the ‘Whole Child ‘and aim for children to grow as well rounded individuals, equipped for the next steps in their lives and life in modern Britain. Every Child brings valuable experience and strengths to school. We aim to build on these by offering a curriculum that is stimulating, appropriate, challenging and differentiated to meet the needs of the child, and we ensure that all children receive the same opportunities to make progress in all areas of the curriculum enabling our children to 'Make Their Learning Fly'.
Making Our Learning Fly is based on six key areas that will help all members of our community have the skills required to be successful, motivated and resilient:
- Independence – the ability to work independently and maintain focus
- Effort – recognising that learning takes effort and commitment, feeling you have done the best you can
- Challenge – that work and life can be challenging but with the correct attitude we can rise to the challenges set us, by taking one more step than you initial think you can, feeling uncomfortable, making you think
- Positive – being positive is key to success, believing in your ability to rise to the challenge, recognising what you can do.
- Taking Risks – being prepared and positive about doing something different or new, being prepared to get it wrong and learn from it
- Determination – the ability to stick at something and work at it, to reconsider you approach and try again, to keep going and recognise that learning is hard work and the best learning happens when we rise to the challenge and are determined and reflective.
We endeavour through this approach to provide an environment where our children are:
- Positive and happy individuals
- Develop skills in language, numeracy, science and the foundation subjects through a rich, creative, balanced curriculum, in line with national guidelines.
- Develop the ability to work co-operatively with others.
- Have an enthusiasm for lifelong learning to develop lively, enquiring minds, knowledge and skills.
- Have a secure understanding of how they fit into a democratic society, how they can participate in and contribute to life in Britain and value themselves as a citizen;
- Are given time to reflect on their own beliefs, whilst respecting those of others;
- Participate in and enjoy the artistic, sporting and cultural opportunities within and beyond the school;
- Have a good understanding of what is right and wrong, how to make the right decision and the consequences of these choices;
- Can think creatively and imaginatively about the bigger picture and how they can achieve their aspirations in life;
- Embrace challenge and have high aspirations
We aim for our children to leave Lilleshall Primary School with many happy memories and feeling fully prepared for the next steps in their lives.
