Hampton Lucy Primary School

At Hampton Lucy, we encourage every child to reach their potential by providing inspirational learning experiences in a caring, nurturing environment within our beautiful rural setting.

'They come this way only once so let us litter their pathways with quality experiences’

We celebrate this quote and invite you to come into our school and experience it for yourselves.

Prospective parents are shown around the school by members of Year 6 who will give you a comprehensive talk about their school. You will also spend time with us so that we can get to know you and your child, and talk through any questions your have. You are welcome to join us at any time so please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A copy of our Safeguarding Policy is available in the Policies section of our website.

Our Christian Ethos

“Our rural village school derives its ethos from its Christian values (1). This means that every member of our school community, of whatever faith or ethnicity whatever their status, from our head to the youngest child in the nursery class is valued equally; all are equal in the sight of God (2).

To enable each of us to flourish we encourage good manners (these are based on consideration of others) unselfishness and an ethic of service (3).

In such an atmosphere each of us can learn without fear (4), dare to take initiatives (5), believe in ourselves and therefore succeed in our education which is, of course, the focus of our school (6).

This approach of thoughtful, shared endeavour (7) applies to school work, sport, music, drama and in all our dealings with each other, in or out of school.

We are a community (8).”

1. ‘The Values for Life’ Collective Worship scheme forms the focus of the work we do in Collective Worship. This is delivered by David Jessett the Vicar, Kate Distin the Fosse Deanery Co-ordinator, the staff and the children in the school. It is developed and endorsed by The Church of England and is based on Christian values and includes other religions.

2. The Value of equality is at the centre of the work that permeates out from Collective Worship into the classroom and onto the playground. It is the core of the discussions with children when their behaviour is not acceptable. It is the focus of discussion when we make people feel uncomfortable through our actions and words. It underpins our behaviour policy and its success is evident in the low incidents of bullying recorded within the school.

3. See in its simplest form it is in the care that the children give towards each other on a daily basis. Year 6 buddies, head boy and head girl showing visitors around the school; children leading in church services and in school assemblies, raising funds for charities, representing the school proudly and politely on educational visits etc.

4.5.6.7.8; the school being itself, at its best, through the diverse and creative aspects of the curriculum. Children do learn in this school without fear, they are loved into being the best they can be; from the high jump in the inter house athletics competitions, to the choir performing carols at Asda; from children teaching children, children sharing their learning with each other, team challenges in Grid Learning and preparing flowers for the church for services. The school is used by the local community and the church regularly for their events.
