Home School Agreement

SCHOOL COMMITMENTS
We all agree the success of a child’s education is a direct result of home and school both working together in mutual respect; the teaching staff as the professionals and parents as first educators.

 

We are a Building Learning Power (BLP) School as we believe passionately in educating children who will be able to adapt to an uncertain future and become a lifelong learner. Our creative topic-based curriculum allows them to become divergent thinkers, skilling them with the tools in order to excel in all they do.

 

We create a culture in our classrooms that systematically cultivates children’s learning, enabling them to become better learners. This culture also allows them to grow in their confidence, enabling them to face difficulty and uncertainty calmly. Children who are more confident of their own learning ability find learning much more enjoyable and achieve much greater levels.

 

We take part in the Rights Respecting School project, an initiative run by Unicef to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.

 

Underpinning the Lark Hall Curriculum are 4 key Drivers:


Communication, Aspiration, Knowledge of the World Enquiry
