Welcome

 

This is a new school and a new way of learning for the families in West Newcastle. We aim to provide space and time for children to develop a deeper way of learning, seek and for parents to be engaged in that process. By exploring learning in small groups and in many different contexts; the city, forest, beach, school and home we will ensure every child has many opportunities to learn in ways the best match their interests.

We hope that supportive environment, together with a high ratio of skilled staff, volunteers and parents, will enable children to be enthusiastic and independent learners. Children will be encouraged and expected to outperform their peers educationally, socially and make a positive contribution to their community.

“The pupils receive a rich, balanced, broad and interesting curriculum. This is a strength of the school and key to its distinctiveness.”

The use of outdoor provision, weekly trips to various locations...

“The use of outdoor provision, weekly trips to various locations including beaches and woodlands and a belief in utilising first-hand experiences to underpin learning, characterise the school. Literacy and numeracy skills are woven into these experiences and also taught systematically as distinct lessons.”

HMI Inspector Jonathan Brown

Children play well together, cooperate and are happy...

“Children play well together, cooperate and are happy. There is a focus on developing personal, social and emotional skills so children become confident learners.”

HMI Inspector Jonathan Brown

Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school...

“Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. One stated that ‘The school is a magical place and he comes home buzzing every day’; another said, ‘He gets up in the morning and runs to school, he can’t wait to get there.’”
