Lower School: Nursery – Year 4

The Lower School Vision

Lower School aims to nurture a positive, accepting and safe environment for all of our learners based on respect, trust and integrity. Everyone will have a voice. Both children and staff will have opportunities to achieve their full potential in our continued pursuit of excellence. There will be no fear of failure, only an opportunity for learning. Our team of confident, capable and passionate educators all strive to deliver a balanced and broad curriculum, based on purposeful life experiences, where exploration, risk taking and independence is encouraged, celebrated and valued. The skills and knowledge our children will gain at lower school will form a fantastic base in their development journey throughout our community school.
