BSO INSPECTION REPORT
An Open Friendly Atmosphere
We believe that children learn when they are happy and self confident in an environment where they feel valued and safe.
Education and Cooperation
When we welcome a child into our school we ensure their education is individualised to have the greatest positive impact. We work to build up the confidence and self esteem of every child, cooperating with parents and guardians every step of the way. We believe that education is a relationship between the child, the school and the parents. Our approach is to work together to achieve the best for each child.
Confidence and Self Esteem
Our education system is child centered and individualised. From the moment a child starts school we work to develop their confidence and self esteem. This approach forms the basis of their learning and the development of this continues during their time at school. We want our students to be happy and confident. We believe this happens best in a learning focused environment.
