The School Vision

Our Vision for Lydeard St Lawrence School


Our vision is to enable our children to become outward looking, curious, innovative individuals, who learn in a school which has creativity, inclusivity and holistic learning at its core.


Our School Values


Our values were chosen through a process of collaboration with our student school and arts councils, governors and staff. These values are at the heart of everything that we do in our school:


  • We are resilient – we understand that learning is a journey at that risks and mistakes are part of how we learn.
  • We are curious – We wonder about the world. We discover new things, we challenge and question.
  • We are proud – We take pride all we do, our school, our learning and  ourselves
  • We Care – we think about our community and the wider the world. We respect each other, we are kind and fair.
  • We are ambitious- There is no limit to what we can achieve.
  • We are unique – We value differences and originality. We are independent, creative and authentic


This will be achieved by valuing and promoting:


  • High quality teaching and learning
  • Outstanding behaviour
  • A rich and stimulating learning environment 
  • A variety of opportunities for all learners in the curriculum  
  • A high level of independence in all pupils 
  • Empowerment of pupils by involving them in lesson planning
  • Responsibility of all learners to move their learning forward
  • Inclusion of parents, guardians and the wider community in supporting the learning journey
  • Our vision which is at the core of everything we do
