Love and Happiness
We strongly believe that children learn best in a secure and loving environment, where they feel part of a community, and know everyone around them. A warm, caring and affectionate approach informs every child’s education with us. We do not believe that this nurturing climate should be confined to nursery and infant school.
We want the children to be inspired by their teachers, and we believe that this comes about when teachers are happy in their roles and where they feel that they can explore their own interests with the children. So our teachers are free to plan the children’s learning with maximum flexibility, inventiveness and spontaneity. They collaborate with the Head Teacher, and with each other, to deliver a rich and stimulating curriculum.
We want the children to be healthy. Each week the children have swimming lessons, plus two PE lessons, in addition to the many opportunities for physical workouts at playtime. Our vegetarian/fish menu is nutritious and tasty. We adhere to healthy eating guidance, and we make it all from scratch in our own kitchen, so there no hidden ‘nasties’ – our food is additive free.
Making A Difference
We believe that the children should learn that they can make a difference to their environment and to their community. Our children learn about environmental issues, and they help put ideas into practice: helping with recycling and gardening, and campaigning for improvements in the local area. We are proud of the contribution that the children make to charity, and we involve them in choosing which charities to support. The children raise money in many ways – even by making and selling their own art work at Spitalfields market!
