Our aim is to create a ‘purpose for learning’ and allow children to be thinkers, innovators and problem solvers, to orchestrate experiences that will result in a natural and integrated development of knowledge, skills and thinking. We have been leading by example, creating dynamic, caring, learning communities that value “the whole child “.
Our vision is to develop a range of pathways to lifelong learning. Our belief is that all children should have the opportunity to experience the joy of discovery and develop a love for learning.
Our school maintains a number of teaching staff at all levels and seeks to employ the best qualified and the most engaging teachers possible. We are lucky to have many teachers with years of experience and we are equally fortunate to be able to attract many young teachers who often add new ideas to the highly successful practices we have established in the classroom.
Our teachers are encouraged to explore modern methodology and to adopt it when appropriate; the school considers in-service training for staff to be vital and devotes a considerable annual budget to this part of our work.
