Vision and culture

About our school

“This place is really accepting and it’s an amazing learning environment” – Sarah Year  7
 

School Values

The village is based on empathy and trust. We treat every member of our community with respect and tread lightly in our environment. We will treat each other with care and kindness. The villagers are generous, brave, and tenacious. The village is transformative for all members of the community. We are inherently collaborative.

School Vision

At Lindfield Learning Village every member of our community is embraced, valued, and known. We enable the voice of each member of the community and nurture imagination and creativity. We are not limited by boundaries, we will break stereotypes, forging new educational pathways to inspire and equip our community members to be a positive change in our world.

Educational Model

A flexible school environment conducive to individualised learning is an integral part of our new educational model. Replacing the traditional classroom, LLV’s open-plan design features a series of flexible, open learning spaces. Our students can move around and furniture can be arranged in different ways to enable students to work together in smaller and larger groups as needed. Our school draws on concepts from Futurist David Thornburg who identifies three archetypal learning spaces – the campfire, cave, and watering hole – that schools can use as physical spaces and virtual spaces for student learning. Our approach is designed to create independent, resilient learners who possess the learning dispositions required for success in their life within and beyond school.

Our learning is built upon and covers the outcomes from the NSW Curriculum.
