About Wayfield Primary School
Philosophy and Aims
Our school philosophy begins with the needs of the child and reaches out towards the family and the future. It is essential that the school should be an island of stability where a child can be secure and happy whatever social pressures exist outside. The responsibility for creating that happy, welcoming, secure environment rests with those of us who work in the school supported by parents and others who work with us to achieve these ends.
At Wayfield all are learners. We believe that our School Curriculum should reflect the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical development of the whole child and provide the opportunity for growth, as a result of this feeling and sensitivity should develop alongside knowledge and skills and so enable every individual to become a success. We aim to achieve this by presenting appropriate learning opportunities for our children in a progressive and structured way through the school. We encourage children to analyse their work and reflect upon their achievements, and value the opinion of others. Children are openly encouraged to develop growing responsibility for themselves, their work and their equipment.
We believe that this philosophy will only be realised if it is developed within a happy, secure environment and in an atmosphere of trust, consideration, tolerance and care, existing between all members of the school community.
To help us achieve our aims, within our philosophy of partnership with parents, we ask you to:
• be supportive of the aims of our school, our philosophy and practice
• contact us if you have any queries, concerns or any issues you wish to discuss
• attend our parents evenings and other occasions to discuss your child’s progress
