Making learning fun

Happy Individuals

From EYFS to Key Stage 2


We offer an inclusive curriculum to ensure that each child’s learning experience offers maximum opportunities for excellence, enjoyment, personal development, respect for self and others.

Equality & Diversity Statement:

At Lifton Community Academy, we embrace diversity by ensuring all pupils develop an understanding and appreciation of cultures and beliefs different to their own.  We aim:

  1. To teach a curriculum which considers diversity in our history and to promote awareness, understanding and respect for diversity in our world.
  2. To teach a creative curriculum that is broad and balanced that supports the mental health of our pupils and their awareness of others’ needs.
  3. To help children understand themselves and build positive relationships without prejudice.
  4. To ensure that staff and the governing body are aware of current legislation surrounding equality and diversity and understand the school’s responsibility.

This is achieved through celebration of special days and festivals, an engagement with awareness-raising events such as Black History Month, E-Safety day and Anti-Bullying week and the embedding of lessons learned through the achievements of individuals from diverse backgrounds across disciplines and through history.

The UK’s past was full of diversity and our children are entitled to learn about this diverse past. History lessons for example, enable them to see their connection to the past and to understand the UK today.
