David Livingstone Academy is a very happy school with a caring ethos. We take complete pride in everything we do and our staff are 100% committed to their role in providing a quality first classed education. Their passion shines through and as a result, our children are inspired to learn and have a real love for learning.
Striving for excellence in all we do is part of the STEP Academy’s vision, of which we are a partner. STEP certainly has incredibly high expectations of themselves and at DLA, above all, the message at our school is that every child can reach for the stars, and EVERY child is able to do just that in their own individual way.
The evidence is clear of our successes in terms of attainment and progress. One example is recently being top of the Similar Schools Performance Tables, this is fantastic, but perhaps to us, the most important element to being successful and having a fun and smiling school is involving the Arts in all we do. Our top quality teaching and learning experiences unlock our talented pupil’s full potential. These range from learning the steel pan to dressing up during themed weeks, and on to experiencing the Science and History Dome to ‘WOW’ the start of a topic.
We have a real community feel at our special school and celebrate each child’s uniqueness, strengths and talents. Our children and adults alike have a strong bond of respect and affection for each other and our whole school ethos is underpinned by us being a Rights Respecting and creative school. Individuality is highly valued and creativity beats through the heart of our school.
Everyone matters- we are a family and learning is irresistible, what more can we ask for?
