Lord Scudamore Academy

About Our School
Our school is committed to the principle of 'investing in people' which ensures that all staff play an active role in the running and development of the school. By meeting the training needs of all teaching and non-teaching staff the provision of good education for pupils is more readily achieved.

The development of a happy, stable, caring, cultural environment, within the school is essential in producing good inter-personal relationships with peers and adults and an atmosphere conducive to study. This will hopefully develop a better understanding and sympathy in the mainstream children for those who are less advantaged than themselves. They should also learn that discipline is necessary, especially the essential self-discipline, with a sense of personal responsibility; thus to achieve this, rules are necessary, particularly for safety and for the children to give themselves and others the opportunity to learn.

To achieve any of this, the school and home must work together in a partnership, each doing their part and supporting the other, so that the child can benefit from the united approach and not be pulled in two directions, trying to conform to two differing standards of behaviour or please two opposing wills. All parents receive the School's Code of Conduct and Homework Policy which sets out what can be expected of us and what we expect in return. The signing of a contract confirms the partnership. To develop this partnership, close co-operation, negotiation, discussion and enthusiastic involvement in school life and the support of its activities are essential.

Our School Aims
The general philosophy and aims of Lord Scudamore Academy are that they should prepare the child for future life:
  • Academically
  • Socially
  • Morally/Spiritually
  • Physically
  • Aesthetically
In these areas we aim for every child to be given the opportunity to develop their own full potential with attention on the basics of literacy, numeracy and scientific understanding, without which the wider curriculum cannot be developed.

In the nursery we have adopted the following philosophy written by the American author, Robert Flugham: All I need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. For example -
"share everything, play fair, don't hit people, put things back where you found them, clear up your own mess, don't take things that aren't yours, say you're sorry when you've hurt somebody...
live a balanced life - learn some and think some, draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some...
when you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together".

If you send your child to our school you are entering into a partnership with us which is based on trust and good communication. One of our greatest strengths is that we never dismiss any problem. If a parent of child has a concern, we promise to do our very best to solve it, your part of the bargain is to tell us about your concern immediately.
