Welcome to Duchy of Lancaster
At the Duchy of Lancaster Primary School we aim to build the foundations of our children's education and prepare all children for the next stage of their education and beyond.
At Duchy, we are building from the ground up: ensuring we get the children’s education right from the very start. Our strong emphasis on the teaching of early reading, phonics, writing and maths will lay the solid foundations for every child. We are passionate about this aim. The building blocks of our knowledge rich, carefully sequenced curriculum, coupled with strong evidence based pedagogy and principles are reinforced by our solid Christian culture and ethos which permeates through everything we do. Our consistent approach to behaviour and the positive support of ‘Thrive’ strategies will ensure all children are ready and able to learn.
Our school and trinity ethos is:
A cord of three stands is not easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
We discuss this as: we are stronger together than apart.
Firstly, as a Church of England School, we see this as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. However, you can see this in: the trinity partnership of 3 schools; our three candles lit in collective worship; school-parents-children working together; school-home-church partnership and more.
This ethos is supported by our values of:
- Ready so we can make every second count.
- Respectful so we can learn from our teacher and each other.
- Safe so everybody can learn.
We will work together with the children, parents and staff to encourage and instil these values in our school and community.
