    At Laneshaw Bridge, we believe in preparing our children to be well-rounded citizens of the future. Children who are well-prepared in their understanding of both their role and core values of being a good citizen within wider society.

    Throughout their educational journey at Laneshaw Bridge, children learn the basic rules and skills for keeping themselves healthy and safe and for behaving well. They have opportunities to show they can take some responsibility for themselves and their environment. They begin to learn about their own and other people's feelings and become aware of the views, needs and rights of other children and older people.

    As members of a class and school community, they learn social skills such as how to share, take turns, play, help others, resolve simple arguments and resist bullying. They begin to take an active part in the life of their school and its neighbourhood.

    These key aspects of learning how to be a good citizen are inter-woven in to different aspects of our school systems, including:

    • School Values

    • Charitable Work

    • The Pennine Champions Award

    • School Ambassadors

    • PSHE/RSE learning

    • School visits and wider learning opportunities

    • School behaviour expectations and learning habits

    • Careers Week and visitors to school

    • Family events and celebrations
