Our School Vision, Beliefs and Aims

Learning everywhere for everyone

Our Vision -Children and young people should be empowered to be safe, happy and confident members of their local communities.

Our beliefs – We want our pupils to be:
As independent as possible in all areas of their lives.
Capable communicators who express their choices, needs and concerns.
Self-aware and equipped to be emotionally resilient.
Integrated and interacting with their peers and the wider population.
Leading happy, fulfilling lives.
We have a firm belief that everybody can make a positive contribution to the community.

To achieve this we will:
  • Facilitate access to community facilities
  • Engage widely with agencies to meet individual needs
  • Offer a flexible curriculum appropriate to all pupils
  • Promote medical and physical well-being
  • Develop communication skills
  • Offer consistent and appropriate boundaries
  • Work with families to achieve the best possible outcomes


British Values at Larkrise School At Larkrise School, we actively promote British Values, as defined under the Ofsted guidance 2014, through our school vision, ethos, agreed rules, curriculum and teaching: Schools should promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. At Larkrise School, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this is a strong shared ethos. We actively challenge children, staff or parents expressing opinions contrary to fundamental British Values, including ‘extremist’ views.
