Vision, Values and Aims
We will instil aspiration and high expectations to empower every child to become a successful citizen of the world through excellence in all that we do.
At Longford Park School, it is our belief that we are creating future adults with the skills and inclination to leave a positive impact on the world – anywhere in the world. Our Global Values are underpinned by fundamental British Values but more than that, our values-centred curriculum is our commitment to ensuring that when they leave Longford Park School, our children are true Global Citizens regardless of their background or any protected characteristics. We teach and expect every child to demonstrate high levels of personal integrity, confidence, and articulacy that they will carry with them throughout their lives wherever they live in Britain and beyond.
To create a nurturing community that promotes respect, appreciation and compassion;
To create a learning environment that promotes determination, resilience and grit;
To celebrate high standards through excellence, creativity and curiosity;
To create an environment that promotes responsibility, leadership and teamwork.
GLF Schools is a multi-academy trust centred upon the National Support School status of Glyn School. GLF Schools’ motto is ‘where children grow, learn and flourish’ and we are committed to developing our school improvement strategy across all sectors. We have been a DfE approved sponsor academy since late 2011 but have chosen to grow steadily so that we can be sure that all schools within GLF are able to ‘grow, learn and flourish’ themselves. We are passionate about helping schools achieve the best possible outcomes for their children and young people.
