At Strand on the Green Infant & Nursery School we provide a secure environment where children feel valued and learn to love learning.
Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff believes in providing a creative, exciting and enjoyable curriculum that enables all to make excellent progress and achieve. In addition to gaining high levels of language, mathematical, scientific and technological skills, children are encouraged to develop enquiring minds, to question, reason and make decisions. Our curriculum is active with many opportunities for learning outside the classroom, within school, the local area and further afield. Every child is supported and challenged to reach their full potential.
We provide opportunities for children to learn about staying safe now and in the future. We work closely with Community Police and other agencies to teach Road Safety, Stranger Danger and to form safe and healthy relationships with those closest to them.
We have been awarded ‘The Healthy Schools’ mark as acknowledgement of our whole school initiatives to promote healthy and active lifestyles. We provide a wide range of physical activities and events (before, during and after school), enjoy a Healthy Week and work hard towards our School Travel Plan encouraging children to walk, scoot or cycle to school.
We think ahead to children’s future economic well being by encouraging children to be independent and try their best in every challenge. We talk to children about enjoying their jobs, taking pride in working hard and reaching their goals.
We help children to make a positive contribution to community by involving them in all sorts of exciting projects. Children take part in charity fundraising throughout the year. They have opportunities to visit different places of worship and meet members of the local community such as Lifeboat Crew, Community Police and Councillors. We have School Council who meets regularly, representing their classmates’ opinions and helping with ideas for future school improvement.
We put great emphasis on the development of social skills and we encourage all children to become responsible and confident. We work hard to ensure that all children have high self-esteem and act towards others with care and respect. High standards of behaviour are expected from all members of the school community.
The school reflects the diverse wider community in which we live and welcomes all children regardless of gender, age, race and ability. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school and celebrate the cultural diversity of our pupils, promoting community cohesion.
