Centred around the needs of each and every child, pastoral care is paramount; discipline relies on common sense, kindness and individual responsibility. The joy of learning and the fun of childhood exploration are shared throughout a warm school community, where every child is encouraged to try everything and do his or her best.
NURTURING THE INDIVIDUAL
We nurture the individual in a community based on fairness, respect and kindness, where adults and children are considerate to each other, where everyone has a voice. All members of our community are encouraged to be imaginative, compassionate, intelligent, empathetic and determined. There is no such thing as a typical Reddam House pupil; every child strives, and is supported, to become a first class version of him or herself, not a second class version of someone else. In a Reddam House School individuality is cherished.
ENCOURAGING CREATIVE THOUGHT
Throughout the school our emphasis is on thinking; encouraging creativity and a brave independent approach. We structure the curriculum to give lots of open-ended activities, focusing on personal and intellectual qualities such risk-taking, reflection and initiative where there is no ‘right answer’. Pupils develop a multitude of possible creative interpretations and solutions. Your child will gain the confidence to take risks and grow less fearful of making mistakes and learning from them. We encourage the development of a growth mindset, fostering the idea that hard work and determination to do well can overcome barriers; preparing your child for a world that requires courage, resilience and flexibility.
