good habits for learning which will last a life time.

and tolerance for different races, religions and ways
Environmente are very fortunate at Launde that the
Wschool grounds are extensive which
enable teachers to use both the inside and out-
side place for extending learning.
The classrooms are located within several build-
ings and children move freely
around them. We have two excellent ICT suites
as well as computers and other
ICT equipment which is freely available in all
classes. There is an outdoor
classroom and a meadow area with a pond
which is used for science activities.
There are number of outdoor learning areas that
children use both during lessons
“The vibrant curriculum helps to explain pu-
pils’very successful achievement.”
Teachers work hard to ensure that the national cur-
riculum is delivered in exciting memorable ways.
Key skills are built upon from Foundation to the end of
Key Stage 2. Children are encouraged to take an
active part in their learning in a variety of ways.

look at a number of different ways of delivering the
learning process i.e. whole class, setting, group and
individual work. Teachers at Launde set challenging
targets for each pupil and pupil’s progress is tracked
termly, outcomes of which are reported to parents.

visitors, journeys and special theme weeks which also
enables children to plan their learning alongside the

community. We believe in working together with our families and our community
to provide the best possible education for our children. We provide an extensive

and want to do their best.”
Good behaviour is a pre requisite of effective learning and we expect all
children to behave in accordance with the school rules which they assist in
devising. Furthermore we have a strict uniform policy and expect a high
standard of dress from all our pupils.

chance of delivering their full potential.
