Our overall aim is to build a humane community, in which all are able to grow and flourish. Research and experience tell us that this is most likely to happen when: boundaries are clearly expressed, understood and maintained by all members of the community; all members of the community feel they have a voice in shaping its norms and expectations; positive contributions to the community are noticed and acknowledged; and behaviour that damages the community is consistently challenged and followed up.
The welfare of all pupils is our primary concern. Rules are kept to a minimum and are based on self-discipline and respect for other people, for school buildings, equipment and resources. Behaviour that endangers self or others is not acceptable and we look to the support of all parents in maintaining high standards and a caring, learning community . At Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy ( LHEA) , children learn to relate to others and take responsibility for their actions. Good relationships are seen as fundamental in forming positive pupil attitudes and the whole school community is encouraged to share in this process.
Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for children, staff and visitors, and promoting a climate where children and adults will feel confident about sharing any concerns that they may have about their own safety, or the well-being of others. Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy recognises that all members of its community have the right to respect and tolerance from others and equally are expected to treat others with the same respect and tolerance. The values and ethos of the Academy are central to our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy.
The governing body and staff of LHEA is committed to, takes very seriously and fully recognises, the responsibilities it has to safeguard children entrusted to our care. We also understand that where we have any concerns about a child’s welfare, we will take all appropriate action to address those concerns by working in full partnership with other agencies.
