The pre-school at Shakespeare School believes that:
All the children that come to the school should be valued equally
Every child has the right to an education that meets their individual needs
Every child has the right to an education that enables them to enjoy their learning, be safe and healthy, and positively grow
Motivation, a contagious spirit and celebration of life, are all cultivated alongside the child's evolving knowledge and growing knowledge. Shakespeare School aims to empower the individual child to make a confident and positive impact upon their own life, as well as the lives of those children around them, both now and in the future.
