Children must feel safe and secure in order to develop and thrive. We create a nurturing environment within our supportive Christian community, and ensure that we know and appreciate all our children as individuals.
By considering their wellbeing across all aspects of school life, we develop confident and happy children who are ready to face the challenges that lie ahead.
Our teaching staff are skilled at meeting the needs of children in class. They use tailored approaches to suit different learning styles and make personalised learning arrangements for individual pupils.
When we feel that a child would benefit from additional input, we consult with the family to explore what will work best. Support ranges from national catch-up programmes for numeracy, reading and writing, to groups for social, emotional and mental health needs.
Through daily Christian meditation in each class, we develop learners who are able to reflect and become calm and focused in preparation for the day’s lessons.
Art therapy is available for children whose emotional needs are such that they would benefit from additional opportunities to develop their inner resilience and emotional security. Our therapists work with individual children each week, in close consultation with parents.
To offer children the best professional support possible, we seek the advice and support of specialists in a range of fields. These include speech and language support, occupational therapy, mental health and educational psychology services. Their advice is combined with parents and children’s views to shape individual support and form personalised learning goals. These conversations are reviewed regularly as children progress through each term and prepare for the following year.
