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.

We believe that each child will succeed at Lynch Hill because of the value we place upon:

  • Adaptability

It’s now more important than ever to be flexible and agile, with plenty of resourcefulness and creativity to respond effectively to challenges and grab new opportunities. Change is always with us and our ability to adapt is vital.

  • Communication

Effective communication is an important life skill that enables us to better understand and connect with the people around us. In school and in life, it allows us to build respect and trust, resolve differences and foster environments where problem solving and creative ideas can thrive.

  • Co-operation

Cooperation is a key skill for once developed, it allows pupils to work together to achieve a common goal or derive mutual benefits.

  • Enquiry

Enquiry is the process of discovery that is driven not by answers, but by dwelling in the deep questions that arise in our lives. It is an open, rather than closed, form of learning and one we celebrate and actively promote at Lynch Hill.

  • Morality

We recognise that good behaviours help in instilling respect and enhancing relationships with others. Knowing what is right or wrong is an important element in life that shapes the character on an individual. We want all of our pupils to have a strong understanding of morality.

  • Resilience

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

  • Respect

Respect shows that we value others as individuals, and that we honour the personal rights and dignity of our fellow students as human beings. Our strapline ‘Learning Together’ means we are inclusive of everyone. We recognise that everyone makes a unique contribution to this school.

  • Thoughtfulness

Pupils who can show compassion and humanity are essential to the betterment of this world and we should never under-estimate the power that acts of kindness can make to the lives of others.

We believe that each child will succeed at Lynch Hill because of the value we place upon:

  • Achievement
  • Aspiration
  • Respect

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 Basic Skills Award and the School Games Gold Award for our commitment to sport
  • Raising the aspirations of our learners and their families through our links with Children’s University
  • Fully embracing the UN Charter of the ‘Rights of the Child’ and celebrating pupil voice
