At Watling Lower School our aim is that all children foster a love of learning and develop a sense of self-worth from the achievements that they make. We want our children to work hard and to see that the value of their effort is worth as much, if not more, than outcomes that they achieve. We develop effective learning characteristics with the children to help them become independent, resilient learners who love to challenge themselves in their learning.
We promote the values that we all need to become honest, self-confident, kind people who work well with others and make a positive contribution to our society. We hope to extend the warm, caring relationships that exist between our pupils and the staff, to parents and the wider community. The job of educating our children is a partnership between our school and our families so we place a high priority on forming excellent relationships based on mutual respect, understanding and excellent communication. Members of the team welcome children to the school every day and are available to discuss any concerns, issues or good news that you would like to share with us.
We are very lucky to have a talented, friendly and hard-working staff who work tirelessly every day to help our children achieve to their full potential. We believe in giving our children a varied and engaging curriculum with a variety of opportunities to explore topics and develop a keen interest that could well inspire them to pursue it at a greater depth. A passion for learning will undoubtedly open many doors for our children in the future and a passion for a particular topic could lead to a very fulfilling future career. We hope to inspire the next generation of scientists, authors, artists and in all likelihood, robot engineers.
