Welcome from the Principal
Here at Maltby Lilly Hall Academy we firmly believe that all our children are ambitious, fulfil their potential and lay the foundations for a lifelong journey of discovery and exploration. Our school vision aims to develop our young people with strength of character and be significant contributing citizens of tomorrow.
Lilly Hall is all about teamwork and partnership. We welcome children, their parents and carers into a friendly, inclusive, happy and hard-working environment where respect for others, positive attitudes towards work and behaviour are encouraged, nurtured and where we strive for excellence for all our children. Governors, staff and parents at the school are committed to providing a stimulating, caring and safe environment, which encourages our children to become confident and independent learners and to respond positively to challenge.
We encourage children to have the confidence to explore and experiment as they work to develop their talents and achieve their full potential through a well-balanced, broad and creative curriculum tailored to the needs of every child. To this end, we have worked hard to develop opportunities for our children to experience learning through first-hand experience as well as using teaching strategies which encourage questioning, curiosity and a sense of ownership. We provide high quality early reading through the Read-Write Inc. approach and this is then developed through school using a reciprocal approach which guarantees progress and gives children the cornerstone of sustained learning for the future.
Our OfSTED graded ‘Outstanding’ Foundation stage ensures children get the best start they can in their educational journey. The teachers are highly skilled in using the children’s interests to deliver the curriculum and ensure learning through play is both effective and enjoyable.
Our unique ‘Learning League’ learning behaviours code gives a clear structure to children’s attitudes to their primary education and promotes behaviours conducive to excellence in pedagogy. Our School Council involves children from Y1 to Y6 and they are involved in making decisions to improve aspects of school they deem important, whilst ensuring they work cohesively and strategically as a group.
All children will make progress at Maltby Lilly Hall Academy. We analyse children’s strengths and weaknesses on a daily basis and our teaching and planning evolve to ensure children of all abilities are set to not only progress academically, but enabling them with all the skills necessary to succeed in the wider world. Our website – www.maltbylillyhallacademy.com will give you a flavour of our aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we strive for and gain and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter. We are proud, we are a community, we are Lilly Hall, where all are encouraged to ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’.
