Congratulations to all at West Ewell Infant and Nursery School in Surrey for retaining the highly-valued Coachmark Gold Award!
The school is an inspiring 4 form entry infant school and nursery with a preschool and infant specialist centre for children with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).
The minute you walk into the school you feel a sense of purpose, positivity and togetherness. The coaching vision for the school can be seen in every aspect of school life and creates a really positive environment. The coaching ethos and approach is described as ‘revealing’, ‘exciting’, challenging’, ‘focused’, ‘reflective’, ‘decisive’, ‘valuable’, ‘beneficial’. The vision: ‘To further develop our coaching culture at all levels. To strive continuously to self improve, challenge and exceed expectations’ underpins the school Mission Statement which led to the creation of their unique School Promise:
The Children’s Promise:
I will always try my best and never give up.
I will treat my friends and teachers with kindness and respect.
I will have the confidence to try new things and find the answers for myself.
The Teachers’ Promise:
I will inspire, motivate and challenge.
I will always aim for excellence.
I will seek the best for every child.
Coaching is fully embedded at West Ewell Infant School and Nursery and simply a way of life at all levels. In line with the promises, the school regularly explores how it can continue to improve as a whole school and is not afraid to challenge or change as a result – everyone has a voice, including most importantly of all, the children.
