We are very proud of our school and welcome visitors who would like to know more about what we do and how we do it. If you are interested in knowing more or are interested in a place at the school do please come and see us. I would be happy to show you around and answer any questions you might have.
The decision about which school your child will attend is one of the most important, and difficult, you will have to make. Your child needs a school that will continue to carry on the important work you, their first and most important teacher, has already started. We will work in partnership with you to continue your child’s learning journey and set them on the road to learning throughout the rest of their lives.
At Langdon we believe that education should inspire our learners and help them to realise their potential. Our core values of confidence, motivation, and independence are evident in all that we do in order that we develop effective and reflective learners.
Our curriculum aims to prepare our learners to deal with any situation they might find themselves in. Since we do not know what the future will look like for our children, our focus is on teaching skills that will help them to become the thinkers, innovators, scientists, artists, mathematicians, entrepreneurs and workforce of the future. We believe that it is important for our learners to know what they can do and then be confident in challenging themselves to do more.
We believe that each individual in our school can be excellent and that it is our job to nurture that excellence in whatever form it may take. We recognise that different learners have different needs and we work hard to show consideration towards others, to learn from and with others, in a respectful and understanding way. We listen to and learn from other points of view and celebrate diversity within our community. As adults, we build positive relationships with our learners in order that they feel safe to have a go, to make mistakes, to try again, challenge themselves and learn well, without fear of failure.
Children really do come first at Langdon and as a consequence our numbers are rapidly growing, as is our reputation as a high quality school with a caring, community-based ethos. Our latest Ofsted inspection report, which can be found via the link on this web-site, confirms this.
