Our Mission and Values
At The Brighton Waldorf School, we are dedicated to balancing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of every pupil in a way that gives them the confidence, resilience and insight to make a positive difference in the community and world around them, throughout their lives.
Our Teachers respond to the needs of each individual child in a safe and creative way, dedicated to creating a genuine love of learning within each pupil. They work in partnership with parents to foster the whole development of the child and consciously cultivate qualities such as trust, compassion and an inner moral sense.
We aim to support and nurture a young person’s:
- Love of learning, alongside a stimulating and inspiring learning journey
- Ability to work with others
- Enduring and practical skills
- Open, encouraging and embracing attitudes
- Spiritual freedom
- Individuality and independent thinkers
- Ethos of respect for oneself and others
Diversity and Inclusion
We strive to be inclusive, non-discriminatory and respectful of difference. We promote social justice, human rights and equity, teaching children to be open-minded, tolerant and to celebrate diversity.
We want our pupils to feel part of the community. The multi-cultural and diverse nature of life in Brighton brings the children into regular contact with people from many different backgrounds so, an understanding and consideration of others is not just taught, but experienced.
As a member of Waldorf UK, we are aligned with and adhere to their anti-racism statement and are preparing to introduce Diversity, Equity and Inclusion related content in an age and developmentally appropriate way, through the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and the wider curriculum, ensuring our students flourish in the changing world.
