Our Aims

Working together with our community to raise the aspirations and achievement of all pupils, we will build the skills for successful citizenship

  • To be a school which fosters a climate of mutual respect where all people are listened to and valued.
  • To work as a team to create a positive environment in which all members of the school community are encouraged and supported to reach their full potential.
  • To be a school where everyone takes responsibility for their own actions and is committed to the development of the school.
  • To develop self-esteem for all children and staff through celebrating our success and the achievement of personal goals.
  • To develop a rich learning environment, creating and taking opportunities and learning with and from each other.
  • To create a friendly, caring and safe environment which is stimulating and secure and caters for all people’s needs.

Strategies we will use to meet our Aims

We will:

  • Develop high standards through our professionalism, common expectations and community spirit;
  • Support learning for all, including by continuing to train and develop our own practice and ensure that we all attend school;
  • Work to support community cohesion.


At Lapage, our children thrive in a happy, safe and supportive learning environment. Throughout their time here, children are encouraged to love learning, work hard and welcome and meet the challenges that new learning brings.

We value our partnerships with parents, carers and members of the community, who make a positive contribution to the life of the school.

Our creative and inclusive curriculum has been designed to identify and maximise every learning opportunity, with a central focus on raising the aspirations and achievements of all pupils using a growth mindset approach.

There is a strong focus on the development of English and Maths skills as we know that these are essential. A rich programme of visits, visitors, outdoor learning and extra-curricular activities, provide further opportunities to increase self-confidence and developing and challenging the skills of every learner at Lapage.

Central to our curriculum is the development of social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding in order that our pupils become confident, aspirational, caring and respectful citizens.
