Values and Ethos

We are a welcoming and inclusive school.

Governors, staff and families are committed to working together to provide a high quality approach to education and care for young children. We believe every child matters and strive to provide rich experiences that support each child’s unique development.

Our school is special because:

  • each child is known, valued and respected.

  • we plan experiences which stimulate children to wonder about the world and to think creatively

  • varied, enticing environments encourage independent, exploratory learning through play

  • experienced and knowledgeable staff are life-long learners and are committed to developing excellent practice based on early childhood principles

  • staff observe children closely in order to support, extend and scaffold learning based upon strengths and interests

  • community groups and school events help to build strong relationships with families and the wider Headington area
