Years 1 to 3

Throughout the Lower School we seek to foster a caring and supportive learning environment, where all students are encouraged to actively engage in their learning, both inside and outside the classroom.

The children and staff have also developed The Gildredge House Way and these values are at the core of our everyday lives.

  • I smile and say hello
  • I listen to learn
  • I care for everyone and everything
  • I keep healthy and have a positive attitude
  • I work hard and challenge myself

Our vision is for all students to be co-operative, confident, ambitious and successful members of our community.

Gildredge House has two Year 1 classes, two Year 2 classes and two Year 3 classes. The children are taught in a purpose built Lower School building with its own hall, library and ICT room. It has easy access to the fields and wood and is developing its own garden. Students are taught by their classroom teacher and also benefit from lessons with specialist teachers e.g. Music, Sport and French.

In Years 1 to 3 there is plenty of opportunity for learning through exploration and practical experimentation as the children ease in gently to more formal methods of learning. Our aim is for all students to have sound literacy and numeracy skills and these are taught discretely and then applied through a creative curriculum approach.

Parents are warmly welcomed into the learning environment to support the children in their learning.
