There are four key principles that underpin our practice at Longford Park School.


A Unique Child We recognise that all children are different. We identify and celebrate their strengths and support their areas for development.

Positive Relationships Our pupils interact well with each other and with the adults in the school. We encourage parents to be involved with their child’s education.

Enabling Environments Our indoor and outdoor areas encourage exploration, investigation and independent learning. Our displays and resources are well maintained and reflect current learning.

Learning and Development Pupils achieve well and make good progress from their starting points. Learning is playful, practical and purposeful and builds upon prior attainment.


We provide an individualised learning programme for your child. Together with this we allow pupils to follow their own interests so that they are able to make progress in all areas of the curriculum.

We will keep you informed what your child is learning throughout the year and provide you with some information about how you can support them at home.
