Stone Lodge Aims and Ethos

We aim to prepare our pupils to be valued members of their communities and to live a full life in Modern Britain. In order to achieve this …………

We strive to overcome all barriers to learning so that our pupils will acquire the skills and knowledge needed to achieve to their full potential in our rapidly changing world, and enable them to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence.

We enable our pupils to develop an understanding of and respect for a wide range of religious values, languages, cultural traditions and different ways of life.

We encourage students to accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely.

We develop an understanding that rights and responsibilities are mutually inclusive.

We teach our pupils to distinguish right from wrong, through clearly defined rules which carry rewards and consequences.

We provide a safe, happy, caring community.

We foster an enjoyment of life-long learning.

We work in partnership with our parents and guardians, and other professionals, to provide the best possible start for our children and young people.

We encourage positive parental and community involvement.

We promote healthy lifestyles.

We provide a creative and stimulating curriculum that is  broad and balanced and appropriate to the individual learner, and which includes a broad general knowledge of and respect for public institutions and services in England.
