“where every child is important to everyone” We provide a warm, happy and safe environment where both our teachers and children enrich each other’s learning experiences. Our school is a place where we have a shared love of learning and where we embrace, celebrate and learn from all our differences whilst learning to co-exist in a mutually respectful environment. We are committed to maintaining high standards and ensure that families have the very best support to enable their children to be the best they can be.
“belief in yourself and your abilities” We believe that building a child’s confidence is at the heart of their education and a key life skill. We build a child’s confidence in many different ways starting with our gentle enrolment into school and gradually building up to performing to friendly audiences. Confidence is about learning to get along with others, being confident in our own abilities, being able to voice our opinion as well as being able to try new things knowing it is ok to get things wrong. We want our children to be proud of their achievements and recognise what they need to do to improve. We believe our children enjoy learning in our school and hope to instil confidence in them in order that they will be able to tackle situations positively throughout their life.
Love of Learning
“curiosity keeps leading us down new paths” We believe the most precious gift we can give our children is a lifelong love of learning. Through our child led learning approach we actively encourage our children to express their ideas and creativity. Our children learn to have the confidence to take risks,step out of their comfort zone, try new things and even embrace mistakes as learning opportunities. By providing interesting topics our skills based learning and creative curriculum weeks are designed to stimulate and excite our children switching on their curiosity and desireto learn.
“what you plant now you will harvest later” We nurture our children’s learning through carefully structured routines that provide a balance of active learning and teaching. We focus on supporting positive emotional and social growth as well as cognitive development at the level of the individual child by responding to each child in a developmentally appropriate way. We understand that what we provide for our children in the early years will have an impact on their future learning. This is why we feel it is crucial to support them in order to achieve positive outcomes.
“if you can dream it, you can do it” Creativity is at the heart of our learning and we firmly believe that it encourages a fascination for tasks and produces excited, enthusiastic and curious learners. We offer a variety of creative learning opportunities in an exciting and stimulating atmosphere where our children can laugh, have ideas and spark off each other. Creativity helps to give our children the skills, ability and confidence to enable them to work imaginatively and to transfer and apply new knowledge in different contexts.
