About Lawn Primary School

We have a very talented and committed teaching and support staff team who offer the children many different ways to excel and achieve. The school curriculum is differentiated to provide challenge for our more able pupils and support for those with any special educational needs. We have an extensive range of extra-curricular activities that provide an extra dimension to the opportunities for learning. We are continually developing our technological facilities to ensure that all of our pupils can access and benefit from the digital learning environment.

Our mission statement “DREAM, BELIEVE, ACHIEVE” reflects our understanding and beliefs. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school. This leads to a consistently high level of pupil achievement, preparing pupils for the challenges, opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
Mental health and wellbeing plays a vital role in education and impact on our students’ learning. This academic year the school is committed to working towards the School Mental Health Award. This is supported by the Carnegie School of Education at Leeds Beckett University who say:
“The Department for Education recognises the direct link between positive mental health in schools and successful educational outcomes; the Mental Health Award for Schools builds on this link and provides a framework for educational institutions to evidence policies and initiatives that work towards improving emotional health and wellbeing for both staff and pupils.”
