At Ladygrove Primary School we pride ourselves on being a friendly, happy and supportive school. We see children as individuals and work hard to nurture and develop them. We value the whole child and work hard to give all of our children a well- rounded education. Music and Sporting achievement are celebrated alongside academic success. We strive for all of our children to reach their potential and we see excellence in teaching as laying the foundations for life-long success.
We believe in educating the ‘whole child’ and preparing them for life as a 21st century responsible citizen. We teach children the importance of sustainability and they have a good understanding of looking after the environment for generations to come, through our wind-turbine, solar panels and school recycling. We have an active School Parliament which takes part on termly projects to improve our school.
At Ladygrove we value the importance of outdoor education. Children in the Early Years regularly take part in outside learning opportunities in our on-site ‘Forest’ area. This outdoor education is further built on throughout KS2 with our residential trip to Arthog, where children take part in canoeing, rock climbing and a variety of outdoor activities.
Our teaching team pride themselves on delivering a curriculum which is broad, balanced, relevant and interesting! It is designed to broaden children's experiences and develop their imagination, creativity and fascinations. Teachers plan lessons which are based on ‘real’ experiences and develop children into confident learners. Lessons are planned based on the next steps in children’s learning, allowing them to gain the skills to develop into literate and numerate citizens. We regularly invite visitors in to talk to the children and take children on visits to a wide range of places. We see this as important in developing a life-long love of learning.
Our school 'SMART' code forms the basis of our school rules. This sets high standards for behaviour and develops an understanding of the difference between right and wrong. It teaches our children how to get along with others.
We actively teach our children to become 'good' learners because this will prepare them for life in an ever changing world. They are taught the importance of resilience, resourcefulness, reflection and reciprocity.
We work hard to develop links between home and school as we see this as the key to developing successful learners. Teachers are available to talk to parents at the start and end of the day and the school’s Senior Leadership are always available too!
