FROM OUR LATEST INSPECTION
” The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.
In lessons, pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. This has a beneficial effect on the progress that they make. Pupils clearly enjoy their learning and strive to give their best.“
Crown House offers our pupils the opportunity to succeed, to be recognised and to be valued. The pupils will develop the intellectual, emotional and ethical requirements to tackle the challenges that life will present, effectively preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in British society. To support the Fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law and individual liberty, we instil tolerance, mutual respect for others and the capacity to celebrate diversity, including different faiths and beliefs, and to embrace challenge. We aim to guide, motivate, inspire and nurture our pupils in order for learning to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. We want each child’s time with us to be happy and for them to look back on their years here with pride.
We recognise the importance of delivering a curriculum to ensure our pupils learn the knowledge and skills required by the National Curriculum and to prepare them for their future schools. The children’s learning is enhanced outside their formal lessons. Assemblies, extra-curricular clubs, themed weeks, residential trips and the School Council are just some of the ways in which we aim to enrich their experiences, and we consider these to be an important part of the education on offer. Additionally, the pupils learn from the way they are treated and the School’s behavioural expectations. We encourage appreciation, respect and tolerance for all ethnic and religious beliefs and faiths and our teaching staff promote, by example, self-esteem and collaborative citizenship.
