The happiness of all our pupils is fundamental to our approach. We place great importance on our pastoral care and are proud that strong academic success is achieved alongside exceptional personal and social development.
Every Lyceum pupil is a valued member of our school community and each one is known to every member of staff. Our strong focus on pupil welfare enables the school to truly celebrate pupil individuality and identify areas for their development.
At The Lyceum, we actively promote our school values in everything we do. Our children are kind, confident and creative, and they have strong community awareness. These core values are taught and reinforced throughout the curriculum and are displayed through beautiful artwork in the entrance hall and on the pillars in the assembly hall.
The children at The Lyceum benefit from being taught by enthusiastic and passionate teachers and our small class sizes and high staff to pupil ratio means that pastoral care at the school is outstanding.
Staff are strongly supported in their pastoral role by the Senior Leadership Team, and time is dedicated at staff meetings each week for the discussion of pastoral matters. Everyone, including the caretaker and the chef, is involved in reporting any concerns they may have about a child and these are followed up on the day that they are raised.
We feel that to flourish, our pupils must be happy. The strong relationships between adults and children create a happy environment where which each child is helped to grow in confidence, make positive contributions to the life of the school, develop their curiosity and love of learning and, perhaps most importantly of all, to have fun.
We believe it is our role to bring out the very best in our pupils, both academically and in terms of their emotional intelligence. Our aim is to help prepare them for life in the ever-changing world outside, where the ability to be resilient, form positive relationships, and to lead a happy and fulfilling life is going to be as important as achieving high academic results.
