We are excited to launch Show My Homework to parents, an online tool that shows all of your children’s homework and deadlines.
Visit the Lavington School Live Homework Calendar and use the filters to view your child’s homework tasks.
We hope that this service will provide parents with an insight into how much and what type of homework your child receives. More importantly, we hope that it will improve your child’s organisation, time-management, and help them to keep on top of their workload.
- No login required - Simply go to the school website and click the homework calendar
- Easy to use - It only takes a couple of clicks to see the homework timetable for your child.
- View anytime - You don’t have to wait until they arrive home, find out if they have homework the moment a teacher sets it.
In addition to this, parents and students will receive a login to their own area and this will show only your childs homework without the need for the filters.
Your child will be given is given login on the first day of term and as parent, you will receive yours via Parent Portal.
At Lavington we understand the need to ensure a smooth transition from primary to a safe and caring secondary school. There is a strong sense of community at our school, where students feel valued and are given opportunities to develop as empowered learners.
The positive relationships which exist between students and staff are a real strength at Lavington. This allows children to develop into young men and women who are able to work independently and collaboratively, to make their own decisions and to take responsibility for themselves and others.
Secondary education comes at a crucial phase in life-preparation, and all our staff delight in helping students fulfil their potential. We provide challenge and support for all learners, and believe in praise, reward, encouragement and the celebration of success.
Working in partnership with parents and the wider community, we believe Lavington provides the best preparation for our students to move on to the next stage of their education and development.
Martin Watson, Headteacher
Here at Lavington we are developing an exciting and challenging curriculum. We commit extra time to English and mathematics where needed.
This allows students to quickly attain the proficiency in literacy and numeracy that will enable them to address the broader range of subjects with confidence.
We will discuss individual curriculum pathways with pupils and their parents. Personalised programmes will be created to develop pupils’ particular strengths while enabling them to make good progress in all subjects.
Our specialist and dedicated staff ensure that lessons meet individual needs, supported by the best information technology and teaching and learning resources.
We are delighted with our results this year, our best ever, reflecting the hard work and commitment of students and staff.
85% achieved five plus A* - C, 74% including English and maths. Every subject maintained the high standard from last year or improved, showing how strong we are across the board.
We have worked hard to stretch our most able students and an amazing 18% of the year group achieved ten plus A*/A, with four students achieving at least 10 A* grades: Eleanor Gibbs, Alexander Griffiths, Rachel Middleton-Jones and Emily Withers.
A number of students were entered for additional maths and five gained A^ grade, higher than A*.
Many students exceeded their targets and all of our students should be very proud of their achievement.
Lavington School is a popular, successful, mixed rural 11 – 16 comprehensive. Staff, students, parents, and governors are very proud of their school.
Working in partnership with parents and the wider community, we believe that Lavington provides the best preparation for our students to move on to the next stage of their education. Students are encouraged to take the many opportunities which are provided for them to develop into young men and women and become increasingly responsible, for themselves and for others. They are truly ‘Learning for life’ at Lavington.
Our school has always enjoyed a good reputation, but we never allow ourselves to become complacent. We strive to maintain and improve standards, and we constantly review the education systems, structures and approaches to teaching which will further improve learning. We aim to provide challenging learning activities through well-planned lessons, using a wide range of teaching methods.
We became an academy in January 2011 to enable us to make more of the decisions on how we best meet the needs of our students.
We like to make our students happy...
Getting involved in activities outside the normal currriculum can enhance their confidence, boost self-esteem and, for some, can introduce them to a life-long interest.
Our extra curricular programme is wide and varied, with opportinities to join new clubs each term. From sports, art, music and drama to knitting - we've got these and more!
