Life is ever more demanding. Children need to be given the skills and support to look after themselves and their well-being if they are to enjoy happy and successful adult lives.
Skills are nurtured through our pastoral care programme and specifically in lessons where children have the opportunity to develop the schools thinking skills (curiosity, focus, risk-taking, creativity, flexibility, initiative, good judgement, empathy, resilience and ambition) and study skills. Pupils are encouraged to speak freely to anyone in the Orley Farm family and recognise our unique Orley Farm Umbrella which guides them on; ‘Who to turn to on a rainy day.’
At Orley Farm we educate children for life not just to pass exams.
Mr King started his Pre-Prep visits this week by visiting Yr 2 classes to talk about ‘Who they can turn to on a rainy day.’ We finished off with some fun parachute games? #OFSempathy #OFSfocus pic.twitter.com/CWALDIS7gL
