What makes us special!
- A Work in Progress -
Our challenge in Tenderhearts Schools is to identify what it is about each individual learner that helps them learn better and then tailor our teaching to that learner.
The days of “one method fits all” are gone, while the days of “community power” are here.
Children learn at different speeds. When they are ready to learn, what interests them, how they choose to learn, what they know and how they demonstrate what they know, are all different.
We aim to know the learners.
Know what they know, and what they do not know. Know what they need to do to get to the next stage. And then give them the tools and resources and equipment that they need to make the next steps.
We get them to think for themselves rather than rely totally on what the teacher has passed on to them. In this way our learners become independent learners, who do not rely on the teacher but use the teacher as a resource to help them achieve.
Tenderhearts places a premium on all her school locations, design and layout, learning aids, equipment, furniture and facilities, on the quality, motivation and commitment of staff, on creative teaching methods and styles, on teamwork within the School and collaborations without, and lastly, on how her local community perceives the School.
These allow us to aspire to becoming the best school in our community!
