Larkspur Vision and Values
At Larkspur Primary Academy, our core values of care, honesty, determination, respect, responsibility and appreciation will permeate school life and enable our children to feel happy and confident within a safe and supportive community. Along with these, the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs, are embedded within our school. We will all work together: nurturing our children to be resilient and offering the very best education. By building a challenging and engaging curriculum, underpinned by a strong, positive learning culture, we will ensure that every child is able to become a lifelong learner, independently striving to succeed.
Curriculum and Culture
Our curriculum is built around the 2014 National Curriculum. We work to make curriculum links that are meaningful to our children and to deliver lessons which inspire and motivate.
Our learning culture is built around the concept of ‘growth mindset’, which helps our children to understand that learning takes effort, that challenge is good and that mistakes can help you to learn. Through our work on meta—cognition, our children learn ‘how to learn’ and what makes them good learners, such as being reflective and resourceful.
