Vision and Values
We Aim High, Work Hard, Care Deeply
Developing Individuals as Active Learners
At Lynch Hill Primary Academy we aim to develop children:
- As motivated individuals who strive for high academic achievement.
- As responsible and caring members of the community.
- As independent, life-long learners.
- Who have high self-esteem, respecting themselves, others and the world around them.
- Who are PRESENT in all they do
We believe that each child will succeed at Lynch Hill because of the value we place upon: being PRESENT:
Having a passion for learning and developing talent helps us to stay engaged, motivated, and driven. New challenges require new ideas, new solutions, and new skills and knowledge, and this requires continuous learning and self-development. Being a passionate learner is crucial to staying motivated, engaged, and ready for our ever-changing world.
We recognise that resilience is the ability to cope with and rise to the inevitable challenges, problems and set-backs that we meet in the course of life, and come back stronger from them.
We embrace the fact that equality and inclusion are basic rights for all. They ensure that equity and accessibility are championed across the curriculum. At Lynch Hill we want everyone to have a clear understanding of their own identity and have pride in who they are.
Everyone should be safe and feel safe in school. We aim to proactively teach children how to manage risks, including those online, so that they can feel confident to navigate the world around them. Knowing how to stay safe, what is right or wrong are important elements in life that shape the character of an individual. We want all of our pupils to have a strong understanding of morality.
We want our pupils to be well-rounded individuals who embrace the enrichment opportunities that are planned to supplement the curriculum. Enrichment trips, clubs and activities benefit pupils socially, mentally and physically.
Nurture as a practice means relating to and coaching our young people to help them form meaningful connections with adults and peers, build resilience and improve their social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing
Teamwork is an essential aspect of child development and is promoted at Lynch Hill to enable learners to improve their levels of communication, self-control, humility, problem solving and decision making.
We demonstrate our commitment to working as a learning community by:
- Striving for continuous improvement in all that we do
- Working collaboratively towards common goals
- Achieving the Music Quality Mark and the School Games Award
- Promoting healthy lifestyles and recognising that healthy eating and regular exercise contribute to a healthy and active mind
- Raising the aspirations of our learners and their families
- Being open to new ideas and challenging ourselves and others to be the best we can be
