Pre-Prep (Reception, Y1 & Y2)
Every child should be happy, secure, valued and confident. The Park School’s philosophy is to value every child as a unique individual, who enjoys learning and thinking for him or herself. The School provides a supportive and secure environment in which every child can flourish and learn at their own pace and in their own individual way.
The School’s role is to stimulate and encourage their development and enjoyment of learning through a variety of different activities in secure indoor and outdoor situations, through play and through structured and creative activities. The School encourages the growth of social skills and empathy amongst the children. Relationships which the children develop with each other and with our staff are central to their happiness and lay the best possible foundation for their future.
Outdoor Learning - Forest School
In our private woodland grounds, we offer a forest school experience and our pupils enjoy their time spent outside the normal classroom environment. They learn varied skills including photo orienteering, use of tools, identification of trees, measuring the moisture of sticks for fires and about water flow and erosion of river banks. They also create artwork and pictures using natural resources. Our forest school leader is very experienced.
We regularly take children on trips to the local park, church, library, theatre, farm and so on. These are designed to help the children to acquire a basic understanding of our traditions, of the natural world and of the importance of other cultures.
Our Prep School is accommodated in dedicated classrooms and outdoor play areas and as an integral part of the school, the children make full use of the grounds and facilities, such as the dining hall, playground, drama studio, sports hall and outdoor play areas.
