Banovallum School

Banovallum School

Banovallum has been serving the local community of Horncastle for fifty years and is housed in a well-equipped, professional learning environment. We are very well supported by parents and community partners and are fully committed to offering an inclusive and open entry policy to local young people. Our mission statement is Aim, Aspire, Achieve

The school is led on the principles of hard work and a personalised approach. We know our students as individuals and celebrate them as such. We strive to ensure that the conditions in school are created to allow the students to become the best they can be, not only in academic terms but in Sport, Creative and Performing Arts and citizenship as well. Banovallum places a great deal of emphasis on student leadership and our students are rightly proud of their school.

We believe that young people learn best when they are happy and our most important principle is that they enjoy and achieve. There is, however, no contradiction between good order and discipline and a belief that being at school should be full of laughter and joy.

The students are expected to work hard, act thoughtfully and behave respectfully. We promote politeness and responsibility. The uniform is to be worn correctly at all times, including on the journey to and from school. We are very proud of the reputation our students have for participation; achievement and community spirit and all members of the student body are expected to maintain and promote this. We trust that parents will support us in this.

Our school community at Banovallum seeks to encourage the healthy development of all our students as they change from children of eleven to young adults.

We value endeavour and aim for excellence. Our students’ creative capacity is motivating and we strive to develop a passion for learning and a commitment to co-operative working.

We aim to promote intellectual growth, to pass on useful skills, to encourage resilience and initiative and develop a sense of responsibility based upon self-respect and a concern for others.

We act on the need to make the lives of our students purposeful, secure, productive and successful. Students are encouraged to follow their passion and to become fulfilled and confident in their adult lives as citizens and people of character.

We currently hold awards for The Arts Mark Award, Investor in People award, Specialist Schools Trust and a School Achievement Award from the Department for Education and Employment. We run the 'PEERS' course, the ‘Programme for the Enrichment and Education of Relational Skills' for our pupils on the Autistic Spectrum for the development of social skills. Banovallum has a lunch time social inclusion club 'The Hive' where pupils of all years can play board games and integrate together and a Learning Support Base for homework support and small group intervention. We were successful in the Aim4Lincs award in SEN at gold enhanced status in 2014 of which we are very proud.
