Our learning environment, both inside and outside, enables children to learn and play creatively and purposefully – in a range of settings, from our ever-popular tree house or mud-kitchen, to our creative play and collaboration areas, playground and climbing areas, role play areas and play houses, and design technology area.
We teach children to develop a growth mindset by modelling and encouraging these five principles:
- Embrace challenge
- Persevere in the face of setbacks
- Effort is the only path to mastery
- Learn from your mistakes and from criticism
- Be inspired by and learn from the success of others.
We believe in the power of YET!
We have high expectations of our pupils: their behaviour is excellent and they treat everyone in our school community with respect and courtesy. We expect children to work hard and take responsibility for, and pride in, themselves.
We strive to ensure that children at Nadeen receive a rounded education, so that they can excel not only in academic areas, but also in being a kind friend; caring for their environment; performing on stage; shining on the sports field; creating musical or artistic masterpieces or making their first million!
We really are a ‘Small School – Big Family’ and children from all year groups look after each other and work together on creative projects.
