At our school, we aim to provide children with a happy, secure and stimulating learning experience underpinned by a caring Christian ethos. We believe that all children have the right to be respected and have the responsibility to learn how to respect others. As an accredited “Outdoor Learning School”, the fundamental importance of respect is of course extended to the world we live in; its peoples, places, plants and animals.
Our school strives to support and encourage our children to become confident, independent learners with a thirst to continually develop and progress in all aspects of their lives. We offer creative learning opportunities that stimulate, excite and enrich. At our school, we place the quality of relationships as a high priority for our staff, governors, pupils and parents and therefore, have the expectation that everyone within the learning environment will respect and support our school values.
We want the same things that you want for your child. In order to achieve this, we rely on our home-school partnership. We encourage parents and carers to get involved in the life of the school and the children’s educational journey. After looking through our website, please come and see for yourself, all that we have to offer you and your child.
At Leonard Stanley C of E Primary School we aspire to “Loving and Learning for Life, as Jesus Taught Us”.
Leonard Stanley C of E School will maintain a happy, secure, Christian environment where each member of the school feels valued and where each pupil acquires a high quality education.
At Leonard Stanley Primary School we are becoming a Rights Respecting School. The children and staff see the importance of rights and responsibilities and understand that they are central to making our school a wonderful place to learn and grow.
A Rights Respecting School teaches children and young people that they have rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. From this starting point they also learn their responsibility to respect others rights in all relationships in the community.
The ethos created demonstrates to children the inclusiveness of a Rights Respecting School and paves the way to participation in the life of the community. This in turn helps them to learn how to formulate, express and listen to opinions, helping to raise their achievement. This new nationwide award scheme promotes the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as the basis for enhancing teaching, learning, ethos, attitudes and behaviour.
This Rights Respecting School ethos is central to all aspects of our school life and its curriculum and therefore our Rights Respecting Statement will appear in all school policy documents as they are reviewed.
You can view our Rights Respecting School Award Report here along with some common questions and answers about children's rights. You will also find a summary of the UN Convention's Rights of a Child leaflet on our website here.
