Admission arrangements back to the top
Section 324 of the Education Act 1996 requires the governing bodies of all maintained schools to admit a child with a statement of special educational needs that names their school. Schools must also admit children with an EHC (Education, Health and Care) Plan that names the school.
If there are fewer applications than places available at a school all applicants will be admitted. If there are more applications than places available, the criteria outlined below (in the pdf documents) will be used to prioritise applications.

Values and ethos back to the top
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.
