At Dawpool, we aim for all children to experience the abundant life that Jesus offers by:
1. Educating for Wisdom, Knowledge and Skills:
Enabling discipline, confidence, and delight in seeking wisdom and knowledge, and developing talents in all areas of life.
- Providing teaching and learning of the highest quality which results in pupils attaining to the full extent of their potential.
- Ensuring that all pupils benefit from a rich, broad, balanced curriculum presented in an interesting, exciting and imaginative manner with lots of opportunities for first-hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play.
- Enriching the curriculum with visits, visitors, and extensive use of our unique environment.
- Treating pupils as individuals and to differentiate teaching and learning to take account of their individual and special needs demonstrating a clear awareness of children’s preferred learning styles.
- Match teaching and learning to the appropriate stage of children’s physical, mental, social, spiritual, moral and cultural development needs.
- Helping all children to become more effective and independent learners.
- Promoting an open, honest and trusting home-school relationship, which is invaluable for a child’s education.
- Building a welcoming, lively, secure community where good behaviour is expected and where they can acquire the leadership skills relevant to adult life and employment in a fast changing world.
- Instilling a respect for Christian and moral values and principles, whilst engendering respect and understanding of other beliefs: fostering Christian values so that all children have respect for themselves, others and the environment.
- Providing a caring, happy stimulating environment in which children are highly motivated in a non-threatening atmosphere.
