Linton-on-Ouse Primary School
Our aim is;
To provide the highest standard of education, giving all children equal opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Our Mission Statement;
Learning and achieving; caring together
Here at Linton-on-Ouse Primary School we recognise the importance of helping our pupils to develop their full potential and we do our utmost to make that a reality. We also recognise that this is more likely to happen when school and home work together as a partnership for the good of the children. We try to develop the whole child and work to enable them to become balanced individuals with a sense of responsibility towards others. Our school is an integral part of the village community. We work with our neighbours and all contribute to the feeling of belonging and citizenship. All children are regarded as equals in our school and we encourage them in all their achievements. As our children leave primary education our aim is that he/she is equipped with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and confidence to move on to the next stage of education, and for life.
At Linton on Ouse Primary school, our HMS Heroes club meets every half term. We discuss topics that are important to us or that affect us, and share our experiences with others in the school. It is a chance to talk to other people, support each other and have some fun. Everyone who comes to the club invites a friend. This means we can share our experiences with non-military children to help them understand how we might feel in certain situations and how they can help support us at difficult times. The club is run by Mrs Garner with Mrs Burton visiting to help us write and send e blueys if our parents are away. After our discussions we take part in a variety of activities, enjoy a snack together and have some social time, where we get a chance to chat and play with children from different classes.
