Through a well-resourced environment and a belief in high standards and enrichment, we help our children to feel safe, cared for and confident. We have proven that this ethos leads to high academic standards as well as ensuring that our children have the opportunity to develop into well rounded individuals. It is our aim to develop children as confident, independent learners who can take pleasure in their studies. We welcome innovation but also place great value in the traditional elements of school life: good manners, politeness, honesty and mutual respect. We want our children to care for others, to have enquiring minds and a desire to strive for success. We understand working hard and playing well together allows them to be happy, satisfied children.
Our school has a unique family ethos which remains at the heart of our success. This ethos drives our educational vision and the values that are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. Our school motto - “Discamus As Vivendum, Let’s Learn to Live”, encapsulates the attitudes for which we strive, ensuring our children grow into young adults who see learning as an exciting and integral part of their daily lives.
Our school assemblies focus on our school values and we choose a different value each half term. We know that we show our values in our behaviour and our actions each and every day.
Our key value at Lytham Hall Park is RESPECT - respect for our friends, our family, our teachers, but most importantly respecting ourselves by living our school values each day.

The DfE have recently reinforced the need ‘to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.'
The five key British Values are:
The rule of law
Tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
The Department for Education has introduced a statutory duty for schools to promote British Values more actively from September 2014, and to ensure they are taught in schools and we ensure our values support the wider British Values. Actively promoting the values means everyone challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Lytham Hall Park Primary School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom. It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them. We follow equal opportunities guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Lytham Hall Park Primary School is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal, examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.
Our learning is also guided by our values - these are the 5 Rs for learning. We explored these in our assemblies in 2013/14 and we remind ourselves of them in every whole school Monday assembly.
The 5 Rs are
These attitudes make us into independent learners and we often link these to our school values as they are the key to our happiness and success.
