Staff often refer to our school as the ‘Lidget Green family’ and we do work as a family – a very big family! Our strength comes from working closely alongside one another, offering support and challenge, to ensure success for children and adults alike. We are an outward facing school and value our partnerships with the West 1 Local Area Partnership, the Local Authority and schools across the country. School to school support is very important and we benefit from sharing good practice in all areas of school improvement.
We develop positive relationships based on mutual respect and good manners; we listen to others and are open to new ideas. We know change can be difficult at times but understand that great things never came from our comfort zones. Our aim is for our children to create their own moral compass in a school that has the highest expectations for behaviour and learning. We encourage our children to engage enthusiastically in their learning by listening attentively, asking questions and challenging themselves to apply their knowledge to real life situations.
Our staff all work hard to develop the whole child. Our curriculum ensures that we meet the needs of all our children: we teach the academic skills alongside social and emotional resilience, foster a love of the arts, promote a healthy life style and introduce financial education skills. Core skills are vital and we know that when children have mastered reading, writing and maths, the doors to the wider curriculum will open and enable them to discover and explore further. In this way, we develop confident and articulate learners who are inquisitive and independent. We really value our broad, balanced and relevant curriculum which develops life skills through a wide range of enrichment. This ensures that our children achieve the best outcomes to guarantee their future life chances.
