The Infant & Junior School Diploma rewards pupils for hard work and enthusiasm.
The LVS Ascot Infant & Junior School Diploma has been created to take our Learning Values & Skills into the everyday life of our pupils and is designed to bridge the gap between school and home.
Whilst working toward this diploma, pupils are given the opportunity to have experiences that are not traditionally taught in the classroom, such as working out local public transport links, working with the elderly and learning basic first aid.
The diploma activities take place twice a week after lunch and some of our current pupils working toward their diploma are participating in the daily mile, tending to our vegetable patch, learning mindfulness and developing their leadership skills.
We encourage our pupils to keep up to date with current affairs and discuss what they think with their peers. These discussions are designed to develop speaking and listening skills as well as working with others to clarify their own methods of thinking.
Each activity within the Diploma session is designed and selected to promote and develop one of the Learning Values. Staff will discuss with their pupils all the options and try to help them select activities which will strengthen areas where they are less confident. Some of the options available to pupils are listed below under the corresponding Learning Value. These activities change regularly so that our pupils have a wide range of options open to them.
