At the heart of our community of schools, is the belief that every child can achieve. We create an environment that allows children to develop their talents, both as individuals and collectively, empowering them to succeed in and outside the classroom. 

At every opportunity, we will encourage our children to contribute to the life and work of school, giving them a greater sense of belonging so they are best equipped to share, respect and trust in the start in life we offer them. 

All schools within SLP share the desire to provide educational excellence where children excel and aspire without limit. Irrespective of their ability or background, we are committed to providing inclusive learning. Via our rich and engaging curriculum, we endeavour to meet the individual needs of all the children we serve to ensure they all reach their full potential. 

Our committed staff work together across all schools, valuing and supporting each other’s skills, knowledge and expertise to provide the highest possible quality of teaching. Such synergy and teamwork ensure we share best practice, enabling us to develop professional relationships built on loyalty, integrity and respect, qualities that are filtered into the classroom. 

We recognise that the children of SLP are all unique, encouraging them to respect and embrace one another’s individuality. Likewise, the local communities we serve are diverse but our knowledge and understanding of them empowers us to forge partnerships that ultimately, are to the benefit of our children. 

The values and ethos held by SLP create a sense of purpose instilling the belief that every school, and every child within it, will succeed. We are all proud of our partnership and our values; the linchpins to our success and our children’s.
