At The Firs, we realise how important it is that your child has a happy and positive start with us in school. If starting in reception, we realise that these early years are a crucial stage in a child’s education, and it is essential that young children should enjoy their introduction to school and feel secure in the environment provided. Equally if a child joins school in another year group, we work hard to ensure that their transition to our school is a positive one.
The Firs Lower School is a happy, lively school with a dedicated staff, who value children as individuals. We believe a child’s education is a partnership between home and school and welcome parental support and involvement. Children, staff and parents all work hard together to make the school a successful and important part of the community.
We aim to educate the whole child, to encourage lively and creative minds, to foster social skills and an understanding of the needs of other people. We aim to develop pupils physically, intellectually, morally, spiritually and personally within a multicultural society and to give each pupil the opportunity to develop his/her own potential within the school’s curriculum, bearing in mind the fact that all children have individual needs.
The children are taught to apply themselves to tasks and to develop a reasoned set of attitudes, values, and beliefs. By these means, we hope to prepare them for both their future education and life.
If you are interested in sending your child to our school, we would invite you to contact the office, and a member of staff will be more than happy to arrange a time for you to visit us, to see the school and discuss your child’s needs.
