At Langley Hall Primary Academy the promotion of children’s personal development is very important to us. This means that we will focus on teaching children to develop a sense of responsibility towards themselves and others, be respectful and be active citizens playing their part in the life of the community. We want every child to understand the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and be mutually respectful and tolerant in their relationships with others. In all aspects of school life, we promote equality of opportunity so that all children can thrive together. We promote an inclusive environment that meets all pupil’s needs. We want all children to be of ‘good character’ and understand the positive personal traits, dispositions and virtues that will enable them to be successful in life. We want every child to be confident, resilient and understand how they can keep themselves mentally healthy. We will teach children about the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social media. Children at Langley Hall will enjoy keeping physically healthy, eating healthily and maintaining an active lifestyle. Children will learn about healthy relationships and the importance of showing empathy, care and tolerance towards others.
Pupil development is promoted not only through all the subjects of our curriculum but through the development of positive attitudes and values.
Our ethos states: We want every child to be a good citizen, a confident communicator, respectful of those whose views are different from ours, discerning and kind hearted. We want them to challenge themselves, be highly motivated to achieve their best, working towards being independent.
