Lamplugh CE School – School Purpose, Vision, Mission and Aims
‘developing life long learning and appreciation of both individuality and partnership’
The school aims to serve the community of Lamplugh Parish and the wider area by providing an excellent education for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds in the context of Christian belief and practice.
It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith. It promotes Christian values and spiritual development, fostering a respect and understanding of other people and their beliefs; through the experience it offers all its pupils. Through the provision of an interesting and stimulating environment and curriculum, we aim to embody the Christian values of love, justice, forgiveness and reconciliation developing tolerance, understanding and respect for all people. It seeks to promote an atmosphere of mutual respect, responsibility and care towards all, both in school and the wider community.
In doing this, we will encourage positive attitudes in which children value and care for themselves, each other and their surroundings. We will provide a safe, secure environment that encourages equality of opportunity for all our children to access education through exploration and enquiry enabling them to be self fulfilled, life-long learners.
At Lamplugh School we promote and develop education for life by developing pupil’s thinking skills and their appreciation and respect for diversity, individuality and creativity. We help our pupils become self-learning and self-reflective. We strive for academic excellence built upon high quality partnership between home, school and the community. We provide a flexible learning environment that enables children to develop high self-esteem and effective interpersonal skills, which will help them to reach their full potential, enabling them to become responsible citizens and meaningful contributors within a sustainable, global society.
