The school provides a happy, secure and stimulating environment as a framework for a child’s educational development and children are encouraged to become self confident, self-disciplined and caring. The school adopts a positive approach to discipline, where the emphasis is very much on praise and reward for good behaviour, with golden rules which the children are expected to observe throughout the school, as well as a few simple rules negotiated in each classroom.
