Nurturing Growth, Confidence, and Well-being

At Wonersh and Shamley Green, we believe that personal development is just as important as academic achievement. Our Christian ethos guides us in creating a supportive and inclusive environment where every child can flourish as an individual.


Our Approach to Personal Development

We focus on helping children develop:

  • Resilience and Growth Mindset: We encourage children to embrace challenges, learn from mistakes, and celebrate their progress.
  • Self-Awareness and Emotional Intelligence: Children learn to understand their emotions, build healthy relationships, and develop empathy for others.
  • Responsibility and Leadership: Through classroom roles, school projects, and community initiatives, we empower children to take ownership and make positive contributions.
  • Kindness and Respect: Our core values of kindness, respect, and tolerance create a sense of belonging where everyone feels valued.
  • Spiritual Development: We offer opportunities for reflection, exploring big questions, and celebrating the wonder of the world around them.

How We Embed Personal Development

  • PSHE Curriculum (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education): Dedicated lessons provide space to explore topics like self-esteem, healthy relationships, and making responsible choices.
  • Assemblies and Collective Worship: We share stories, values, and celebrate acts of kindness that inspire personal growth.
  • Outdoor Learning & Forest School: Experiences in nature foster resilience, problem-solving skills, and a sense of connection.
  • Clubs and Activities: Opportunities for leadership, teamwork, and exploring personal interests.
  • Partnership with Families: We encourage open communication with parents to support children's development both at school and at home.  

The Whole Child Matters

Our goal is to nurture confident, compassionate, and well-rounded individuals who are ready to make a positive impact on their communities and the world.
