Lifton Community Academy

Our School Vision: A Brighter future together!

Our School Values: Kindness, Resilience, Wonder and Belong

Lifton Community Academy is a vibrant community where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve well and become confident and independent young people. Children at Lifton receive an excellent start in our Fledglings Foundation Unit and this continues throughout the school as all staff create a happy, supportive and purposeful environment. We are strengthened and supported by being part of a wider community, the Learning Academy Partnership. As a Multi Academy Trust, we are a family of exceptional schools across Torbay and Devon who work together for the good of all our children and communities.

We have an exciting curriculum that excites and stimulates children’s imaginations and creative thinking. At Lifton we enjoy fantastic outdoor learning and forest school areas that are utilised all year round. The children also experience sessions from expert forest school providers who teach the children during the summer term. Research has shown that outdoor learning improves mental and spiritual health, communication skills and social relationships; but most of all it is great fun and inspires our learning. We believe that connecting with nature helps children feel part of the world.

Our Trust Mission: Flourishing Futures

Our school is a part of an inclusive School Trust where everything begins and ends with the children. We want to ensure that we have a profound impact on the future lives of our children so that they have choices and options which will enable them to flourish as they go though life. Quite simply, we put children first in all that we do.
