Hyde Park Infant School
Our aim is to provide an inclusive, warm, caring and stimulating environment where every child can gain self-confidence and learn to become independent.
It is important that the children are not only encouraged to have self-respect but that they are given the opportunity to appreciate the value of others. Each individual child is helped to develop his/her own personality within a secure environment whilst always being aware of the needs of others.
We firmly believe that children learn effectively in a secure, caring atmosphere where they have access to a wide range of first hand situations in which they can show initiative, self-reliance and consideration. Opportunities are given for working co-operatively with other children and adults as well as on individual tasks. We have high expectations of the children and encourage them to set themselves high standards of work and behaviour.
Our broad and balanced curriculum meets and extends the requirements of the National Curriculum, providing continuity and progression; this means that we are concerned with the acquisition of knowledge, the understanding of concepts, the skills of problem solving, aesthetic appreciation, physical development and the application of these to every day situations.
We are committed to a child-centred educational approach, which enables the individual to develop their own potential so that they may become independent, responsible, useful, thinking, confident and considerate members of the community. This list is by no means complete but might go some way to show the enormous task we willingly undertake. It is important to remember that children are individuals and do not all develop at the same pace and that they must be valued for what they are not for what they have achieved.
We recognise the crucial role which parents play in their children's education and make every effort to encourage parental involvement in the educational process in a partnership style.
