Lagos Preparatory School
About Lagos Preparatory School
Our school provides day facilities for boys and girls aged 18 months to 13 years who are taught the requirements of the English National Curriculum, with some emphasis on Nigerian social studies.
The school is equipped to a high standard providing all the facilities needed to teach the full curriculum.:
The school has a comprehensive reading scheme, an up to date library and an excellent range of resources, both text and photocopy based, which are used to carefully match the needs and ages of the children.
All the classrooms are bright and stimulating
ASSESSMENT & REPORTING
The performance of the children is monitored carefully and targets for improvement are set regularly.
Parents receive two formal reports a year – amid-year progress report with targets, and an end of the year summary report.
In addition, a brief monthly report is sent out giving marks of tests in english and maths and an indication of progress in reading.
Our school is registered with the Department for Education and Skills in UK and at the end of Key Stage One and Key Stage 2 our children take the SAT tests mandated by them.
Our children take these tests at the same time as in England where they are marked and moderated by them.
Our Mission Statement
Lagos Preparatory School aims to promote the development of each pupil regardless of gender, race or social class so that all the children achieve their maximum potential.
We wish to recognize the potential and to maximize the achievements of the school community. We will develop strong links with parents, families, directors and the wider community to enable them to enhance their educational experiences and to make them feel part of the school family.
To achieve this we will:
Develop a positive ethos within which we will promote high standards for raising achievement.
Have high expectations of pupils, encouraging them to have enquiring, imaginative and creative minds, to enable them to become ‘independent learners’.
Provide clear direction and purpose for each individual and always strive to improve on prior achievement.
Develop and understanding of the need for good behaviour and courtesy and teach them to take responsibility for their own actions.
Develop an appreciation of their won and other cultures, teaching tolerance, understanding and respect.
Provide an enriching and stimulating curriculum through creative and high quality teaching and learning experiences.
Encourage good personal health, interests and skills to make the best use of life long leisure and educational opportunities.
Ensure a safe and secure learning environment for all.
Prepare children for a smooth transition for the next step in their education and help to lay the foundations for lifelong learning.
