Visions and Ethos 

 

Swing Gate Infant School and Nursery promotes 'experiential learning' to develop happy, active and inspired children.

We aim to:

  • develop enquiring minds and a spirit of adventure
  • create confident children that are happy to 'have a go' at new skills and experiences
  • deepen knowledge and widen attitudes which will prepare children for future life in a changing and diverse world
  • enable children to realise their potential across the curriculum
  • create children that are eager to take part and reflect in their learning
  • celebrate individual effort, talents and creativity
  • promote behaviour that enables all children to achieve their potential and develop socially, academically, and personally within a positive and safe environment.

We achieve this by:

  • instilling a spirit of adventure
  • bringing learning to life in a deeper, more engaging and more active way
  • investing time, money and energy into 'experiential learning' to create a lasting impact 
  • creating a stimulating learning environment
  • supporting children to succeed in a nurturing and caring way
  • working in partnership with home and the wider community.
