A message from the Headteacher

On behalf of the children and staff I would like to welcome you to our academy website. Lantern Academy is proud to be part of the Learning Community Trust, a thriving Multi Academy Trust that is passionate about ensuring all children receive a quality education.

As headteacher of Lantern Academy I am proud of the rapid improvements the team have secured in terms of education, quality learning experiences and the building itself. Our values of We Care, We Respect and We Persevere are interwoven in all of our teachings and ensure children will leave us ready to embark on the next stage of their education. Opportunities within the academy ensure children have an opportunity to take on responsibility and understand how to be excellent role models.

We have designed an ambitious, inspiring and community relevant curriculum which will provide children with the knowledge and skills to have positive attitudes, be independent learners and be ready to live and work in an ever-changing world.

As a team, we are passionate about creating close links with the community and enjoy good relationships with our parents and carers as well as other agencies and businesses within our locality.

Our aim is to provide a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment where all children thrive and achieve their best.  We do this by working closely with other professionals and parents and carers in order to ensure all needs can be and are addressed. Our motto is that ‘every child will shine.’

To find out more or arrange a visit please contact the office where one of the team will be happy to help.
