A School for Life
To provide a curriculum that inspires a love of learning for life
To inspire good stewardship or care of the body we have all been given and the world we live in for life
To support parents in building Godly Character in their children – which will make the world a better place for life.
Our mission, to quote Charlotte Mason originator of the Ambleside curriculum, is to "provide a ‘living education’, where each child is guided and empowered to author a full and free life, a life rich in relationship to God, self, others, ideas, and all of creation. Thus, our primary concern is the kind of student each child is becoming, not the mastery of particular data or technique, for we are confident that the student who masters the art of learning will attain his or her full potential for mastering data and technique. Students who master the art of relating well to God, self, others, ideas, and creation will attain the fullness of life for which they were created"
We believe that – that every child should have access to learn in an environment that is safe..
Safe from harmful food substances
Safe from bullying
Safe from judgement and shaming
Safe from fundamental extremism (political, ideological, religious, philosophical or nutritional)
Safe from manipulation, abuse and control
Safe to develop true Godly character
Safe to grow in accountability and responsibility
Safe to not be compared to others for the sake of finding or naming the best
Safe to grow and love and learn about things that matter like music and maths, art and architecture, poetry and permaculture, nature and nutrition, history and heaven, creatures and creation, geography and Genghis Khan, biology and the Bible, life skills and love, exercise and entrepreneurship,
Safe to move and get physically healthy and strong without being judged for your body type.
In other words;
Safe to be their best selves!
