At Lakey Lane Primary School, it is our intent to deliver a character education curriculum that provides our pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be able to thrive as independent, confident and responsible ‘citizens of the future.’ We are passionate about providing our pupils with an education that develops them both academically and morally. Our school values will help to prepare our children to be self-reflective, well-rounded individuals, who are able to make wise and informed choices that guides their behaviour and prepares them for the next stages of their lives.
We are at the beginning of our character education journey at Lakey Lane and we are determined to ensure our school values are at the heart of everything we do. They will shape our school ethos and culture and we will work consciously and conscientiously to make Lakey Lane a place where children acquire character values that lead to success in school, university and life beyond. Our school values will drive our thinking and behaviour and they will influence our actions and attitudes, positively allowing our children to reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and flourish in an ever-changing world. Our values will help prepare our children to be self-reflective, well-rounded individuals, who are able to make wise and informed choices that guides their behaviour and prepares them for the next stages of their lives.
A complete character education approach seeks to develop the ‘four building blocks’ to character education: intellectual, moral, civic and performance. In doing so, we believe our pupils will be able to develop ‘practical wisdom’ – enabling them to make the right choices, for the right reason, for the right about of time, regardless of who is watching.
As such, at Lakey Lane we will focus specifically on six character values, voted for by our school community, including staff, children and parents. Our values at Lakey Lane are:
