Langar Learning Trinity

Vision

Achieving academic excellence through the acquisition of learning skills and core Christian values

Academic Excellence

The Langar curriculum promotes risk taking, choice and decision making which enables children to take responsibility for their own learning and lifestyle. It provides our children with learning challenges which are engaging, motivating and exciting. Through a broad range of subjects and balance of experiences every child is encouraged to reach their full potential.

                                                                            

Learning to Learn

The Langar curriculum utilizes children’s natural curiosity and seeks to develop time and self-management through problem solving, enquiry and investigation. We inspire children to collaborate, co-operate and reflect through talk, and lead them to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding through a range of real life learning experiences.

Values

The Langar curriculum is built on a core set of Christian values that provide a moral compass and a common language of behaviour for the school family and wider community. The values equip our children with social and relationship skills, intelligences and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives.
