Pre School Philosophy
Our Pre-School is a small and family-orientated, which we hope will see hundreds of happy and successful children pass through its doors. We are fully aware of the emotional, spiritual and educational needs of children. We have decided to open our own reception class because of our passionate desire to provide an educational establishment of excellence.
The Pre-school is founded on the principle of small class sizes, research having identified the numerous benefits of providing the individual attention upon which children thrive.
We celebrate all children and all festivals and celebrations such as New Year, the birth of a new sibling or moving house. We want to celebrate the events the children value. Please inform us of any events which you are celebrating at home and we can talk and celebrate them at Nursery.
The staff are all highly qualified and committed Early Years Teachers, who endeavour to make each pupil aware of his or her innate qualities and skills, and to develop these to full capacity. The policy of having small class sizes ensures that each pupil is well known and understood. It also provides a learning environment in which confidence can be strengthened and the high academic standards for which the school wants to be renowned are achieved. Each child is encouraged to live a fulfilled life in the years ahead and to make a happy and positive contribution to society.
The key values underlying the school's ethos are reflected in the expectations of high standards in: care for the health and safety of pupils; educational provision; behaviour; respect for self and others; respect for property and the environment; responsibility for one's own behaviour.
We expect people to address one another politely, to recognise and praise good behaviour, effort and achievement, to listen to one another. We expect children to comply with requests and instructions from the adults in school. We expect children to understand that their behaviour has consequences. We expect children to comply with the school's structures and routines for promoting positive behaviour.
We believe that children learn at their best when they are praised constantly for their achievements. We encourage the children to overcome obstacles such as putting their shoes on or lining up before going inside on a daily basis. The children are aware of the code of conduct such as sitting on the carpet nicely and saying please and thank you. We demonstrate this through talking to the children and promoting it ourselves.
The school's aims are to grow to become a thriving, happy school
