A community approach
Community links and generating pupils with strong morals remains a focus of The Lancaster School. In all areas of the curriculum we look to collaborate with external partners to deliver the best offer for our pupils and the wider community.
We recognise R.E as a core subject, so we adhere to a locally agreed syllabus. We also recognise that parents are the primary educators of the faith and we work closely with the local religious community in embedding these strong links with our local community. We foster an ethos of serving both individuals and society. We place an importance on developing an understanding of different faiths and cultures – developing tolerance and including all those with any faith and those with none.
We recognise that the children need both a sense of valuing themselves, and developing aspirations for their future and for their community. We have designed our assembly values to provide a breadth of experience within a subject area, drawing on outside speakers, involvement of parents and developing a sense of empathy. We are passionate that all children realise that it is a big and wonderful world out there that they can play an active and positive part in it. With the community idea leaving The Lancaster School, a better place than they found it.
