Vision & Values
Every child, every chance
Where students are happy, healthy and safe and achieve more than they thought possible, at school and beyond.
At Lavington School, we pride ourselves on providing a secure, stable and well-ordered environment based on high educational standards and genuine care and concern for individuals. We work with all students, whatever their ability, to help them achieve their potential. We aim for students to leave Lavington School as aspirational, confident young people, ready to take on new challenges and have a lifelong love of learning. Our students will have resilience, resourcefulness, and the wisdom to treat others with respect and courtesy, and this forms the foundation of our ethos.
We ensure our students have the knowledge and confidence to make positive, safe and aspirational decisions about their lives whilst at school and for their futures.
We ensure that our students are active and independent learners, who strive to achieve their best in every learning situation and will continue to do so throughout their lives.
We ensure that students are highly literate and numerate, able to apply their skills and knowledge to new and different situations, to achieve well in school and beyond.
We ensure that students fulfil their potential and are fully prepared and qualified to leave school and move onto the next stage of their lives.
We are proud of our achievements at Lavington School, but there is always more we can do. By working together, we can shape a positive and successful future for our young people.
At the heart of this success are the core values that we believe are important:
- Excellent teaching by experienced, specialist teachers
- Individual care through an excellent pastoral system
- High levels of achievement through a challenging academic curriculum chosen to give students the best life chances
- Innovation in all aspects of education
- Traditional values of behaviour, appearance and conduct
- Developing personal leadership through a wide programme of extra-curricular activities.
