The site is to help children & parents access useful information & research from home.
School Improvement Plan from 2006 to 2008
If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got.
Useful when you were producing Victorian copy clerks, but not when over half the jobs our children will do in their working life are yet to be thought of, & on average, everyone changes career 7 times!
Our School Improvement Plan will enable us to achieve our school aims by concentrating on improving learning opportunities for, and the achievements of, all Luckwell pupils despite the many distractions!
We are currently developing our 3 year plan for 2006 to 2008. This process involves everyone, and is an ongoing reflection on what we do well, and so wish to continue, and what we have found not so useful, and want to do differently.
We are still concentrating on improving learning through developing study skills and trying to build learning power. We are developing more sustained learning using methods other similar schools have found successful, especially learning how to learn. An example is 'Critical skills' training children to develop 'quality criteria' for their learning.
The SIP is being developed from our review of the effectiveness of pupil learning, and will be similar to the current SIP below.
GOALS OF SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PLAN SEPTEMBER 2004 to 2006
To increase the effectiveness of pupils' learning by focusing on learning how to learn, providing children with the skills & learning environment to learn for an uncertain future.
To achieve and maintain high self esteem for all. Success for both goals recognised by children achieving their targets, with strategies in place to help this, & end of year PIPS shows value added for all children.
The easiest link is to look at our 'Talk Weeks' and other activities on 'What's new in Learning'
The following strategies will be used to meet both goals
1. To develop a feedback policy to ensure we assess what we value
2. To improve the quality of learning and teaching we will focus on learning about learning.
3. To develop an appropriate approach to school self evaluation which involves everyone in target setting and evaluation.
4. Governors appropriately involved in evaluating the effectiveness of SIP:
5. Management team to complete the new Bristol self evaluation workbook with our Schools' Improvement Officer (SIO).

We are trying to make our school history available online.
This is VERY much work in progress.
Thanks to Miss Withers we have fairly full records, plus many interesting stories!
We also have many oral & written interviews and photos from our Centenary which we are trying to 'digitise'. For more about Miss Withers click here .
We have an enormous amount of information still to 'digitise' - but then it will be accessible forever.
We appreciate feedback & information!
To see the school in 1900 Click here
The Malago Society have given us permission to 'digitise' all the information they hold about Luckwell's history. This will be available as soon as we can find the time! e.g. there are a number of accounts from Miss Withers. There is nothing about us on their website here, but you may be interested in exploring local history. The Malago Society website. (NB Be careful of the 'pop-ups' from their links).
Rebuilding Luckwell for the 21st Century
2004 - a huge achievement for everyone at Luckwell, from Student Council to governors. for the photos & more details - it's fascinating!
History of developing the school grounds
Luckwell's football history
Here is a start - several separate photo albums. We aim to eventually have written information & stories to go with the photos. There are obviously a huge number of other photos, but we need an archiver.
Luckwell SPORT links
Luckwell sports person of the term
An award introduced in 2005 to encourage everyone to try their hardest in sport. Click here for more.
In 2006 the Football Foundation have helped us. Bristol City F.C. are coaching all children over an 18 month period. We also have a new kit (see below)! Click here for more, & photos.
In 2005 we achieved the 'Charter standard' with the F.A. More here later.
In 2004-5 a new focus was introduced to football & netball clubs. During sessions we work on 'non-sport specific' skills such as speed, endurance, strength, flexibility, spatial awareness, hand/eye co-ordination and team skills. This principle is called Speed, Agility, Quickness (SAQ) and has been used by many leading sports teams including: Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, Manchester United, England RFU and the All Blacks as well as Team GB at the Olympics. More here!
