Our philosophical foundation is based on the belief that:
“Avon House is a family, concerned for the happiness and general well-being of all. Celebrating and supporting every pupil begins with self-esteem, honesty, fairness, integrity, respect for oneself and respect for others. In our happy, secure environment the emphasis is placed on each child being recognised as a valued individual. We hope our pupils will develop their full potential in both academic and non-academic fields, with a strong moral understanding of truth, equality and humanity. We aim to give our pupils life-enhancing strategies to build on as they progress towards the adult world.”
The well-being of all our children is very important. The class teacher monitors both academic progress and the general well-being of every child. The class teacher is the first point of contact if parents wish to discuss any aspects of their child’s progress. The Head Teacher chairs the Pastoral Care team which consists of the four Heads of House who meet regularly to discuss welfare issues of the children.
