A welcome from the Headteacher
I can tell you so many things that I think are wonderful about our school, but would encourage you to make a visit and see for yourself! I hope that if you are a new parent and considering sending your child to our school, this website will give you an insight into our work and values. For our existing parents, I do hope this website will prove a useful way in keeping you up-to-date with what is happening in school and will provide information and advice, continually strengthening our very important home/school Partnership.
To educate children to become independent, lifelong learners and contributing citizens in a rapidly changing, challenging, multi-cultural world.
We aim to create a happy and welcoming learning environment for children, parents, staff and the community; a place where everybody, working in partnership, strives to do their best and contributes to improvement.
STATEMENT OF INTENT
FOR THE CHILDREN
It is our aim at Crownfield Infant School
- To provide the best education and personal development for each child within a framework of care, respect and discipline;
- To offer high quality learning opportunities, which scaffolds their early steps and challenges them to achieve beyond their expectations;
- To make learning an active, enjoyable process, relevant to the child’s needs and abilities, encouraging children to develop a joy in learning and encourage self-motivation;
- To provide opportunities which promote confidence and challenge, developing the whole child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development;
- To provide a safe, stimulating and responsive environment, which actively encourages children to take responsibility for their own learning and ensuring opportunities for all;
FOR THE STAFF
- To create the ethos whereby all staff know they are valued and can work as a team, with the support and consideration of colleagues.
- To provide staff with a comprehensive programme of self-development and training that reflects their importance to the school as a whole.
FOR THE COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL AS A WHOLE
- To develop the school as a centre of excellence for education and training and as a focal point for the community.
- To work in partnership with parents, Governors and the local community, including our pre-school, adjacent Junior School, local playgroups, church, police, health and neighbourhood business enterprise, to actively fostering positive relationships;
- To improve and maintain the school building and grounds in a way that is conducive to daily use and sympathetic to the environment.
UNICEF - Rights Respecting Schools Award
- Recognition of Commitment Level 1
As a school we are working towards the Unicef Rights Respecting School Award. One of the greatest challenges that a school can face is to clearly define a set of VALUES (not just school rules) that has been developed by the whole school community and particularly the CHILDREN. UNICEF's RRSA initiative helps schools to use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child to establish a Value's framework that underpins the curriculum and ethos of the school. Working on this framework has a positive effect on relationships, teaching approaches, attitudes and behaviour of everyone involved - adults and children! Other schools have reported that this work can:-
- Support and enhance childen's moral development
- Improve behaviour and relationships - children understanding both their rights and also their responsibilities
- Develops positive attitudes towards diversity and reduces prejudice
- Helps children understand their responsibility as a global citizens
- Results in overall whole school improvement in learning
- Enhanced job satisfaction for teachers
We will keep you updated on our journey towards this goal.
Crownfield Infant School is proud to be part of a Collaboration Agreement which is a patnership between three Infant schools within Havering: Crownfield, Langton and Rise Park Infant schools
