It is our duty to ensure our children are ready to flourish at secondary school and have the capacity to be successful in what will be their modern Britain. For this to happen they must:
- reach high standards of literacy and numeracy;
- have a keen sense of what it is to be 'British' in a Britain that celebrates the differences we all have in our life choices, relationships and opinions;
- love learning;
- love life.
Staff work extremely hard to ensure that all of our children’s potential is both recognised and realised.
No child at Peafield Lane should slip through the net. We firmly believe that ALL children should be able to read and write by the time they start secondary education, regardless of their starting point in life.
The people at Peafield Lane try their very best at everything they do. Targets are always ambitious and there is a clear understanding that the journey is at least as important as the destination. Peafield Lane is a school that strives for excellence in all that it does and for our children to become the best people they can be.
Love life, love each other and love yourself. Effort is put into making lessons enjoyable and encouraging large and fluid groups of friends. If a child is not worried about who they are going to play with at break-time and looks forward to being in school then they can give their full attention to working hard in exciting and interesting lessons. The school makes no apology for the fact that our children sometimes go home with muddy knees after they've been rolling down the hills we made for them at playtime, or exploring in the nearby woodland, or digging up carrots in our allotment, or... the list of enjoyable activities that we encourage our children to 'get stuck in' with is endless!
