We devote considerable amounts of formal curriculum time to fostering the children’s development.
Personal and Social Education is taught throughout the school in the form of Emotions for Learning lessons or PSE lessons.
Daily registration periods with Tutors provide time to address issues of significance with any particular class and time is available for Year Groups to meet to discuss any pastoral issues that have arisen.
Assemblies provide a collective moral and spiritual framework to the life of the school and can be used to address any matters of general concern or, much more often, celebration.
The academic curriculum is itself full of opportunities for children to ‘think beyond themselves’, particularly in the Humanities subjects.
The development of the children’s ability to possess and express their feelings and to read and respond to others’ feelings is at the heart of Drama, Art and Music, which are taught by specialists as part of the curriculum throughout the school.
This applies to the whole school, including the Early Years Foundation Stage. November 2012
