About Us

Lark Hall provides itself with providing an individual educational experience for our children. We develop the ‘holistic’ learner, where children are taught both analytical skills for their cognitive development and divergent skills for their practical development. These are augmented by the teaching of key character traits. This combination of skills will equip our children with the necessary tools to succeed in the creative industries that will inform future societies.

 

Lark Hall is large school and community support centre actively supporting the local community situated on the Clapham/Stockwell border. The school consists of five areas; a two-form entry main school for children aged 3 - 11; a centre for autism for 30 children aged 4 - 11; an autism outreach service working with ASD children across Lambeth; children’s centre and two Year year-old nursery for 20 children.

 

The school consists of five areas:

1  a two-form entry main school for children aged 3 - 11

2  a centre for autism for 30 children aged 4 - 11

3  an autism outreach service working with (how many? put number in) ASD children across Lambeth

4  Children’s Centre supporting families from birth to 5

5  two Year year-old nursery for 20 children

 

Our curriculum is underpinned by 4 drivers which are engrained through all aspects of our teaching and learning. These are CommunicationAspiration, Knowledge Of The World & Enquiry

 

These four key principles are the bedrock of our school curriculum and engrained throughout all aspects of our teaching and learning.

 

Children’s learning of the curriculum is monitored through instantaneous ICT-based assessment, more traditional books/folders assessment and effective questioning/verbal feedback.

 

We also believe our personal social character development (PSCD) should underpin the main school curriculum and the three areas of morality, self-awareness and social awareness to be of the utmost importance in ensuring our children grown up to be well-rounded individuals who leave us ready for the next stage in their lives.

 

All of the achievement attainment and progression indicators, consisting of Early Years Foundation Stage good level of development (G.L.D.), Year 1 Phonics, Key Stage 1 Reading, Writing & Maths and Key Stage Two Reading, Writing and Maths has consistently seen the percentage of children above the national average for age-related expectations (A.R.E.). Our focus is to ensure all groups of learners are working to a consistently high standard and no child is left behind.

 

We firmly believe our children’s outcomes are measured by creating analytical, divergent and creative thinkers who have a passion for learning and develop the appropriate character strengths to succeed in the modern world.
