For the twenty first century children need an excellent all round education. At Prince’s Mead we know that in order to succeed they need that little bit more.

Our educational approach is designed to shape our pupils’ ability to think in ways that will enhance their future and give greater meaning and enjoyment to their lives right now.
ISI Inspection Report - March 2016; 'The quality of pupils' achievement and learning, including the EYFS, is excellent across the full range of subjects and activities. Pupils' listening skills are a particular strength, and their positive attitude to everything they do is a significant factor in their many successes.'

Pastoral Care

Prince's Mead has a Christian Foundation and teaches children about the importance of Christianity in an ever changing world. We also recognise and value other world faiths and cultural differences within both the wider community and our school.
 
Prince’s Mead is a harmonious community in which the values of tolerance, loyalty and understanding have their place alongside the pursuit of academic success.
ISI Inspection Report - March 2016; 'The pupils have a strong moral awareness. They discuss pastoral matters and think about the consequences of their actions on others.  Mutual respect is at the core of the school community.'

At Prince’s Mead our teaching programme for pupils aged 4 to 11 offers them the opportunity to participate in lessons which serve both as a model of rigorous thinking and as a celebration of wonder and open-mindedness. All children, no matter what their academic profile can gain much from the curriculum they are offered.

As a school, we will find something that ensures every pupil will succeed and thrive. Everything we offer shapes the development of our pupils and better prepares them for their life ahead; it is by looking at pupils as unique individuals that we are able to give them the confidence to move successfully on to their chosen senior schools. We invest heavily in Information Communication Technology resources and we recognise that competence in this area is vital for our pupils in the future. Children’s design technology projects and individual art work, examples of which are seen in almost every area of the school, enrich our daily life. The children benefit from being taught by specialists who believe that inspiration and hard work are the keys to success and that high standards are achieved through encouragement and high expectation borne of challenge and most importantly, of fun.
 
Our classroom ‘communities of enquiry’ build confidence in speaking and conducting negotiations, skills crucial in secondary school, university and professional life.
 
The children are nurtured to achieve goals individually matched to their skill set, across all disciplines.
 
As an institutional member of the National Association of Gifted Children we support their recommendations that parents of gifted children choose a school that offers
“challenging ……higher order thinking skills incorporated into the tasks that are set.” 
Our approach initially developed out of our interest in the needs of pupils with special talents and abilities. We developed this further to give all pupils the chance to reason and explain their thinking, to listen and to build on the ideas of others. All our pupils have the potential to achieve; they are all catered for in a curriculum that is challenging and creative. Whether by constructing kites, discussing the environment, writing to local MP’s, fund raising for our link school in India or creating animation films in ICT, learning is challenging and fun.
 
Our teachers are exceptional practitioners and they inculcate in the children a ‘love of learning’ by giving them opportunities to think, negotiate, facilitate and create. The use of specialist teachers ensures all our pupils can truly achieve their potential.
