The aim of all staff, teaching and non-teaching, is to provide a caring and supportive environment in which a child can succeed.
The aims are: to provide a range of learning opportunities for all children enrolled at the school; to help them become self-confident and responsible people making the best use of their time in the education system and to begin to prepare them for the adult world beyond the school gate; to allow children to develop lively enquiring minds capable of independent thought; and to experience enjoyment in learning so that they may be encouraged to take advantage of educational opportunities throughout their lives.
As teachers, we set high standards for work, play and social development; the children are encouraged to do their best. The children's self-esteem is promoted through a system of rewards and praise in the classroom, the playground and during lunch times.
Within the school, we strive to provide a safe, pleasant and stimulating environment so that the time everyone spends at Whitstone school, however long or short, will remain with him or her in happy memories and in moral, emotional, spiritual and intellectual growth.
We believe, however, that we can only achieve the best for your child by close co-operation between home and school, and there will be many opportunities to share in your child's education.
