Life is becoming 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. At Orley Farm we educate children for life not just to pass exams.
Pupils are encouraged to speak freely to anyone in the Orley Farm family and recognise our unique HELP document at the school; ‘Who to turn to on a rainy day’
