Learning Together, Playing Together, Succeeding Together.
'LPS' can either mean Lacock Primary School, or the vision we have for our community: that we will continue to grow in Learning, Playing, and Succeeding together. As a Church of England School we openly and actively learn from the Christian tradition as a foundation for all that we do, as we believe that an encounter with Jesus is what brings a full and abundant life to all. The values from this tradition which we particularly focus upon are listed below.
Of course we are aware that many of our school community may not identify themselves as Christian, and whilst this is our foundation, we are also very much a school where there is a welcome for everyone.
The Lacock Learner
During October and November 2015 the staff, governors, and children worked together to summarise what is central to a school for both adults and children - learning! We wanted to describe what makes a good learner and we came up with the 'Lacock Learner', who:
Listens, is Active, Confident, Open to God, Creative, and Kind
L - Listening
Listening is always important. Listening to what is said by everyone in our class and learning from what they have to say.
O - Open to God
Learning to reflect, to think about others and the world around us, and what it means to pray help us to grow and develop.
A - Active
As well as using our brains, we should use our bodies. Exercise keeps us healthy. We can learn by doing things. We have PE lessons to learn specific skills and we play at play time.
C - Creative
Learning isn't all about English and maths (although those are really important). It's also about art and design and music and dance. We try to be creative in all we do.
C - Confident
When we learn we have to be confident. Everyone makes mistakes when they try new things but it is important to have a go.
K - Kind
Everyone has to get on with each other and we all have to respect each other and help each other do the best we can. We look after each other.
