Welcome To Launde Primary School.
Launde is a successful school which aims to meet the needs of all children and there is dedicated team of staff who work extremely hard to achieve this aim. The children have developed wildlife and outdoor activity areas and are always involved in any new projects. Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. Work is planned jointly, in year group of generally three teaching staff with close liaison, communication and support from our teaching assistants.
During planning, the year group staff share the preparation of work, drawing on different experiences, knowledge and expertise to ensure work is relevant and well matched to meet the needs of the children. In this way, we are able to utilise the strengths of a large staff team and enhance the quality of learning and teaching at Launde.
At our school, we think it is very important that our pupils develop a strong set of values and principles and that they question and understand what it means to grow up in British society. Through a rich and challenging curriculum and through a focus on key events, we encourage pupils to reflect upon their role in society. We have developed the following statement which we feel encompasses our approach:
'Our balance of academic excellence and opportunities underpins our aspirational expectations and provides pupils with the skill, attitudes and confidence required to lead highly successful lives in modern Britain. The promotion of equality and diversity within our schools assists us in the embedding of the British values of tolerance, fairness, respect for other faiths, and the rule of law and democracy.'
