Flexi-schooling at Weston Lullingfields CE Primary School
We are offering flexi-schooling at Weston Lullingfields. This is an opportunity for any family who would like to work in partnership with a school for the education of their children, but in a way that fits in with the needs and wants of the family themselves.
We wholeheartedly believe in respecting “parent’s freedom to educate their children according to their vision of what education should be has been part of international human rights standards since their very emergence.” (‘The Special Rapporteur to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights – 8th April 1999) and support the choice to Home Educate as a valid decision, albeit one taken with a great deal of thought and care.
We subscribe to the idea that every child is an individual and provide the family of children at our school with a personalised ‘bespoke’ education. Therefore, we feel that we are in a good position to offer ourselves as an option or solution for those parents who hold alternative ideas about how their child should be educated and who might have become frustrated at how learning is delivered in their local schools or local authority.
We are a Rights-Respecting School (Level 2) and we support the UNESCO ‘4 A’s’ rights-based approach to education. Therefore we want to ensure that a good, quality of education is available to everyone and that this education is accessible to everyone, making sure that there is no discrimination, through accepting and practising a flexible approach . We want to ensure that the education we provide is relevant and acceptable to learners, regardless of their circumstances or background, and that it is adaptable to their needs – this means that we are not set on any particular teaching approach nor on a fixed curriculum (although we do, as a state maintained school, have to follow the statutory requirements)

Who are we?
We are a very small village primary school situated just three miles north of Baschurch set in a lovely quiet, rural location with views across to the Welsh hills. We have two small classes and a nursery called ‘Little Acorns’. Because we are so small, we can offer a family-like atmosphere with emphasis on providing the care each child needs to grow to their full potential.
We have a breakfast club which starts at 8am and the Weston Warriors, an after-school provision, which finishes at 5pm and offers a wide range of activities (recently we have been able to offer Karate, horse riding, tennis and drama).
Despite the size of our school, we are able to offer hot school dinners (which we purchase from a nearby school).
We are a church school with close links with our local parish. Our school ethos is underlined by our belief in the core Christian Values. However, we are not just a school for Christians, and we welcome families from any tradition and will discuss different levels of participation (including withdrawal) on an individual basis.
If you think that we could offer something for you and your family, please don’t hesitate to contact us for a chat or for a visit.
