Supporting At Home
When parents and teachers work well together it provides a solid base for the child to flourish.
There are Parents’ Evenings, study groups and many cultural and fund-raising events at the school.
Parents are encouraged to give active support to the quality of the education by helping children enjoy imaginative and creative activities at home rather than, for example, watching television or playing computer games which have been shown by research to undermine children’s learning and development, especially for young children.
Pastoral care, behaviour and expectations
Care of pupils’ well-being and development is central to the ethos of our Academy. Kindergarten teachers, class teachers and class guardians work to meet and support the development of each pupil while encouraging and challenging them to meet their potential at all levels. Everyone is called upon to show respect for each other.
The Steiner Academy has a dress code rather than a uniform; this requires pupils to come to school suitably dressed to support their health and well-being, with sensible shoes they can play in. Clothes should be tidy without logos or pictures. Hair should not be dyed until Upper school and then only natural colours. No jewellery should be worn apart from studs in lower school and no make-up until upper school. Children are expected to bring a change of clothing for games activities.
