Developing a passion for learning to last a life time is fundamental to everything we do at St Faith’s. We do this by teaching a broad, stimulating curriculum to inspire and motivate children whilst encouraging them to explore their interests and to be confident and proud of their own -and others’ – achievements.
The progress of every individual child is at the core of our learning, alongside our high expectations so that each pupil has the opportunity and support to fulfil their potential. By encouraging the children to become independent, resourceful learners, confident in their own abilities and clear about their personal goals, they will be able to go forward and continue their own learning journey.
As a small school we enjoy a great deal of individuality and diversity where each child’s different experiences, talents and viewpoints can help create a vibrant and stimulating centre for learning.
We teach children that ‘fail’ stands for First Attempt In Learning – that having a go and getting it wrong can be a positive and learning experience where our past experiences build a secure foundation for the later building blocks of education. We foster opportunities for proactive questioning, evaluation and research, working independently as well as productively in teams where each child’s thoughts are valued as part of the greater school community.
Staff work closely in partnership with parents and carers, so that we are able to bring to bear all their expertise, talents, interests and ideas to contribute to the overall learning within St Faith’s. This sets the children on their learning journey, as they become successful, fulfilled individuals now and in the future.
