At Lypiatt Primary School and Early Years Centre, we want our children to achieve their full potential in a safe and happy environment. We want them to feel valued, have high aspirations and become confident, independent learners. By the time children leave our school they will be equipped for the next stage in their educational life and the challenges of the 21st Century.


Children will be encouraged to:


  • Set personal goals and assume an ‘I can’ approach to achieve the highest standards possible

  • Maximise their talents and abilities and develop a positive image of themselves by having self-confidence and high levels of self-esteem

  • Work independently and collaboratively

  • Question, investigate and to have the confidence to take risks in their learning

  • Take pride in their achievements

  • Develop as citizens by showing tolerance and fairness to others

  • Have respect for different cultures and religions and acquire an increased understanding of our global community.

Lypiatt Primary School will:

  • Provide a welcoming, stable and caring environment where everyone feels safe and valued

  • Deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which can be accessed by all

  • Ensure high quality teaching which meets all learning styles and motivates our children

  • Provide opportunities for children to express themselves in imaginative and creative ways

  • Have high expectations

  • Help children to develop an enquiring mind and foster independent learning

  • Provide breadth, balance and variety of experiences and opportunities to use ICT creatively to support learning and problem-solving activities

  • Celebrate every child's achievement whether great or small in all areas of school life

  • Develop citizens who have a strong sense of right and wrong and the capacity to make rational judgements and choices

  • Provide an environment where there is respect, integrity, fairness and equality in all areas of school life

  • Develop life long learners who will go on to take a responsible place in our society

  • Encourage a strong partnership between home, school and the community.
