Children learn through a culture of kindness and consideration about the needs and feelings of others and to respect themselves and others. They learn to talk excitedly about what interests them and to listen to what others have to say. They begin to understand that language, thinking, and learning are interlinked. They become confident individuals and feel valued. At the same time, with praise and encouragement, they are learning the basic skills which form the foundation for future learning. It is such a vital time in our children’s lives. We place great emphasis on ICT, Sport, Music, and Drama and like to involve parents and extended family in as many activities as we can.
Pastoral care is excellent, as are the arrangements for the welfare, health and safety of the pupils.
For the younger classes in the Pre-Preparatory department we aim to provide a smooth transition into the school environment.. The staff provide a carefully
structured pre preparatory programme which is designed to stimulate the children and cater for
their individual needs. The wide range of activities and new experiences takes
place both in and outdoors and aims to enrich the overall development of the
children. The planning, teaching and assessment are based on the Early Years
Foundation Stage (EYFS).
To learn more about the daily routines in our pre-preparatory school, request a prospectus, or to see them in action for yourself you are welcome to attend one of our open mornings.
