About Floreat Montague Park
At Floreat Montague Park Primary School children and adults work in a holistic way by integrating spiritual, moral, aesthetic, physical, social, emotional and intellectual strands into our everyday lives and practice. Children are supported to achieve high standards of self-discipline, a strong work ethic, effective social skills and an accomplished intellect.
Our school vision for Floreat Montague Park is:
To provide a nurturing environment which allows children to grow, learn and flourish in their personal and academic development based on the 6 principles of nurture:
Children’s learning is understood developmentally
The Classroom offers a safe base
The importance of nurture for the development of self-esteem
Language is a vital means of communication
All behaviour is communication and
The importance of transition in children’s lives.
To promote children’s personal development enabling them to become motivated, inspired, self-disciplined and independent children who have a love of learning and want to make a positive difference to the world
To promote and develop the idea of sustainability at the school, in the community and globally through our own work and partnerships with the UN and Rights Respecting Schools
To provide and continually develop a thematic curriculum that is meaningful, purposeful and responsive to opportunities and developments
To be an integral part of the community through the children, their families, neighbours and organisations
To develop our school grounds and building to drive the curriculum and inspire us all in line with the principle of The Third Teacher
Our Philosophy & Culture
We strongly encourage the children to be responsible for themselves: their conduct, their work; their time-keeping; their environment and their community. In order to engender this sense of responsibility, we constantly engage the children in matters relating to the running of the school, from educational matters to health and safety; from choosing which charities to support to managing the risks associated with an outdoor setting and encountering potentially harmful plants and insects. The children expect to be involved and this is evident in the day-to-day, ad hoc conversations as you walk through school as well as in the formal school meetings. Our expectation is that the character traits we foment have a significant impact on their learning.
This approach is underpinned by:
The School motto GROW, LEARN, FLOURISH
The School mantra KINDNESS MATTERS
The School values
We all lead by example, recognising that independence requires support and guidance. Adults and children are addressed appropriately: first names are the acceptable in the school and help our visiting pre-schoolers and youngest children to form successful relationships quickly with school staff. As children grow, they are taught and shown other forms of address.
We behave this way because we believe that full participation and involvement in life at Floreat Montague Park equips children with the personal development, experiences and character to flourish.
