Langer Primary Academy

Our Values


In order to achieve the best for our pupils, it is vital that the school is trusted by the community it serves. Our school is built on the trust that all decisions made are in the best interests of our pupils. We, as staff and leaders, take this responsibility very seriously.


We are focused on teaching our pupils to care about themselves, their peers and the place in which they learn. We want our pupils to expect to be treated with care and kindness and we expect them to show this to others too. If anyone ever needs reminding, we use the phrase ‘right time, right place, right thing’ as a prompt to support them.


So that our pupils can value the learning opportunities we are giving them, we are teaching them the importance of having aspirations. We want all our children to know that they can be whatever they want to be. We encourage them to dream big and we celebrate what makes each pupil unique and special.


The core purpose of our school is to educate our children to the highest standard possible. The education they receive at our school equips them to be successful in their next steps. It is vital to us that our curriculum leads to our pupils making excellent progress. It is also essential that our children leave us as literate, numerate and engaged young people keen to be part of their school community and their local community.

Analysing, connecting and evaluating are the higher order skills we seek to develop in our curriculum. In order to ask meaningful questions, we know that it is essential that children understand the key concepts in every subject and theme that they study. We use a carefully sequenced curriculum that is based around the principles of cognitive science to ensure that all our pupils can access their lessons and link their current learning to prior learning. Our children enjoy explaining what they are learning to us and keenly talk about their lessons with us and visitors to our school.

We know that achievement for every child will look different. Ensuring that, at Langer, every child has equal access to learning and makes progress is vital. This often means that we need to make reasonable adjustments to our curriculum and provision in order to be fully inclusive. We celebrate all the achievements (academic, social, sporting, creative and social and emotional achievements) of our pupils in order to ensure they all develop into confident young people with very big aspirations.

We want every child who attends Langer Primary Academy to make excellent progress from their own starting point. For this reason, we created a curriculum to ensure great outcomes for every child. Please see the Curriculum page for further information.
