I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. Through our website we aim to give you a flavour of our school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.

We are passionate about learning and strive to instil in our young people the importance of staying healthy and a love and excitement for learning that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Commonswood a successful and popular school with a nursery. We are a well-resourced school situated in beautiful grounds. Our School is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

We have a fantastic staff team with a strong commitment to high quality teaching and learning. We believe in the development of the 'whole child' as an individual, who will leave our school with the skills and qualities needed to become a responsible global citizen in an ever-changing world.

There are several aspects of the school which I would like to emphasise:

High quality learning experiences

Children are better learners when they feel happy and secure. We place vital importance on the physical and emotional well-being of our pupils. We ensure we provide the best possible enriched curriculum with excellent teaching and learning as key priorities. We want our children to learn together and fulfil their potential, laying the foundations for a lifelong journey of discovery and exploration. We want them to enjoy learning through an active and challenging curriculum.

A wide range of extra-curricular activities

The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities chosen by the children and conjunction with competitive sports opportunities and events.

Citizenship/Community Links

Citizenship and character building is an integral part of everyday learning. Developing pupils' character, which we define as a set of positive personal traits, dispositions and virtues that informs their motivation and guides their conduct so that they reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others. This gives pupils the qualities they need to flourish in our society. The school is at the heart of the community and are proud of the strong links we have with the local area. These include local businesses, charities and the University of Hertfordshire.

Home/school partnership

We firmly believe education is a partnership between home and school. Home and school are the two most powerful influences on children and only by working together can we ensure children get the best education. It is through your love and encouragement that your child will become motivated - first to please you, and then to please themselves. This leads to self-confidence, curiosity, the enjoyment of mastering new knowledge and skills, and other healthy attitudes, all of which contribute to successful learning.
