Our aim is to provide an outstanding holistic education that will ensure the young people of the Lathom High School community are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to fulfil their potential and make a valuable contribution to society.
Our ethos reflects the [email protected] statement. It is at the heart of everything we do and everything we ask of our students and parents, and wider community. We encourage our students to have goals, to stand tall and PROUD and strive to be the best. Our expectations are high and this is to push our students to give of their best every day. We want them to understand that this is their RESPONSIBILITY and that to make the most of their individual potential they need to have OWNERSHIP of their attitude to learning, their behaviour, their personal organisation and their presentation.
As such, our ethos is characterised by the values of:
There are certain values that inform the way that we behave, and provide a positive influence for students.
Lathom High School actively promotes principles that:
These values are promoted through our daily tutor time, Enrichment Days, Assembly Programme and embedded within the general ethos of our school community.
We operate on a yearly plan where we have themes relating to British Values, which interweave with Tutor Time discussions, and Assemblies.
Through our thriving School Council we ensure that all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to, and, we actively promote the democratic process through elections for School Council, Head Boy/Girl and Prefects. Democracy is further promoted through student questionnaires.
The behaviour policy is centred around ‘respect’ as a core value, and discussions and assemblies focus on what respect means and how it is shown.
Extra-curricular activities are used to encourage respect, tolerance and harmony between people who may hold different views to ourselves.
The school supports local, national and international charities. In 2017 more than £3,500 was donated to a variety of charities.
The information below reflects how Lathom High School works to promote positive values through the ethos and life of the school, for example through a broad and balanced curriculum, and through social, moral, cultural and spiritual development.
