Wishing You a Warm Welcome
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome both new and existing families back to the British Primary Section for the 2020-21 Academic year. This calendar year has certainly been a challenge, however, I truly believe that as a learning community for all, we continue to thrive and would like to reassure you that we take the responsibility of having your trust to educate your children very seriously, and look forward to working in partnership with you so that your children continue to flourish!
Over the summer, much work has continued to ensure that we provide the best environment possible for all to succeed. Much of this is discussed in the small video below, presented by Mr Stallwod and myself, however, I would like to bring to your attention our renewed energy which is encapsulated in our Vision Statement below:
'To be a flourishing, multilingual and multicultural community of lifelong learners that embrace independence, curiosity and empathy to make a positive difference in local, national and global environments.'
I want to reassure you that working alongside all Sections, this vision is central to our ethos. We want to ensure that every child 'flourishes' by providing an environment where all children grow into successful members of society - essentially making the world a better place! Within the British Primary School, our holistic education is upheld by our 'Community Values' of Respect, Participation, Responsibility, Creativity and Perseverance. These are central in ensuring that our students make a positive difference!
Essential in everything that we do is Safeguarding. Keeping children, your children safe, physically, mentally and socially is our priority, but also we pride ourselves on safeguarding your children's success. You will have already received information in relation to our academic achievement, which we are very proud of, however we continue to strive for further success, we are relentless in this pursuit!
Finally, as you will be aware of, we are still enacting Covid-19 measures to mitigate any risk posed to our community. Although this may not be ideal, central to everything that we do is that of your children - and I would like to thank you for your support.
