Ethos & Aims

Ethos & Aims of Lindley Junior School  

Our principle aim is to educate the ‘whole child’.

We offer a school community that encourages the development of mutual respect and tolerance within a happy, hard - working atmosphere. We seek to develop lively, enquiring minds; to prepare pupils for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of life through a high standard of education.  We encourage all pupils to reach the highest standards of personal achievement by recognising and being constantly aware of the needs of each individual child according to ability and aptitude.  

We passionately believe in educating the ‘whole child’ and champion an ‘I can’ culture to raise self-esteem, confidence, resilience, attainment and achievement among our pupils. These are vital ingredients not just for a successful school life but for lives lived in the wider community. 

We offer a curriculum which is broad and balanced providing an educational experience of quality, which will develop the intellectual, expressive, physical, spiritual, moral, cultural and social skills of pupils of all abilities. Creativity is at the heart of everything we do. We will ensure that we provide our pupils with the best opportunities for personal development and challenging learning goals creating a real and tangible excitement about learning.  We strive to offer all pupils equality of opportunity and recognise the importance of different cultures.  

We believe this curriculum will encourage achievement, resilience, develop caring and positive attitudes and will extend the children's knowledge of themselves and of the world in which they live. We intend that pupils will develop tolerance, sensitivity and understanding, and respect for the rights, views and property of others.    Our intention is for all our pupils to achieve their full potential; preparing them for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of adult life. 

We strive for excellence.
