“Taking pride in all we do!”
The aims and values of the school
The overriding aim of our school is to provide an inclusive education in the most real sense; preparing students to take a confident and active place in society, well prepared to meet the challenges of adult life. We believe that all young people are entitled to a form of education that will support them to be kind, healthy, stay safe, enjoy, and achieve, make a positive contribution, and achieve improved economic well-being.
All adults working at and with Lighthouse School are firmly committed to this philosophy, which is expressed through a programme of continuous curriculum review and development aimed at maintaining high standards of teaching and learning and within an environment that positively promotes and expects mutual respect.
- To promote everyone’s personal, social, emotional, and academic development in a happy, caring and positive community.
- To promote staff and governor development enabling all to contribute effectively towards the aims of the school.
- To help students develop lively enquiring minds, the ability to question and argue rationally and to apply themselves to tasks and physical skills.
- To encourage everyone to be resilient. To care about the community, both in and out of school, and to behave in an acceptable and considerate manner.
- To help students acquire knowledge and skills relevant to adult life, preparing them for the future.
- To deliver a wide-ranging and enriching curriculum that can be adapted to meet the needs of all pupils.
- To help students understand the world in which they live with tolerance and respect for other races, religions, and ways of life.
- To develop, in students, a sense of self-respect, happiness and well-being that enables them to express themselves and have their voice heard.
- To appreciate and celebrate achievements in all aspects of education and life.
