Our learning ethos
At Long Ridings Primary School, we believe in the whole child and a rounded education. Learning is at the heart of everything we do; learning for children, staff and parents. Our ethos is embedded in our belief that high expectations achieve high outcomes! We also believe in building confidence by giving children opportunities to achieve through challenging and creative learning experiences. We want to raise standards and expectations by making sure that, whatever a child’s background or starting point is, they complete their journey with us with the academic skills, social and emotional skills and knowledge necessary to succeed.
We have an unwavering commitment to nurturing a culture where our children work hard, are kind and take responsibility. Over time our students develop the character which will help them succeed at school and beyond.
We deliver a good all round education. We focus continually on learning, operate good routines and build strong relationships with children and their families. We have very clear routines in the classroom so that all children can benefit from a calm environment. Children are expected to work quietly and independently; sometimes on their
own or in small groups with their peers and in pairs at other times. This enables them to think deeply on their own when appropriate and gives them the social skills when working with others. We foster a love of learning and thinking. We promote independence. We teach the children how to take responsibility for their own learning.
