Our Early Years Ethos

At Swansfield Park Primary School, we are committed to providing the very best learning foundation so that every child can have the potential to succeed as an engaged, independent and confident learner. 
 
We believe children learn best when:
 
  • they experience positive emotional engagement with learning
  • enabling adults facilitate their learning
  • they are supported to follow their own interests through research and first hand experiences
  • they have time to learn, return, practise, refine and master
  • they use their imagination to be creative
  • they are inspired to explore
  • learning is a collaborative experience
  • teaching and learning opportunities are tailored to them as an individual
To enable your child to learn to their full potential, we will provide them with:
 
  • high expectations of achievement for all
  • outstanding teaching
  • sustained shared thinking
  • time to plan, explore and reflect on learning
  • appropriate challenge and questioning
  • inspirational environments and resources
  • collaborative learning opportunities
  • support to develop learning mindsets
  • exciting and memorable experiences
This ethos is at the heart of the experience that your child will have at Swansfield park Primary School each and every day.  You can see and read about this ethos in practice on our class blogs which can be found on Apple, Pear and Plum class pages.  Furthermore, we would be delighted to show you around our Department and talk with you first hand about our commitment to the very best Early Years education.
