Our Aims and Values

Barons Court Primary School and Nursery grew from an Infant School to a Primary School in 2010, seeing our first year sixes through at the end of the academic year 2013-2014.

Barons Court is based on the educational philosophy of Regio Emillio which was developed in Italy following World War II. This philosophy encompasses the values in which Barons Court has been developed upon: respect and responsibility, enriched environments which are created and developed in partnership with our children, community (the school working as a community and the school reaching out to the wider community) and a creative curriculum that is planned alongside the children to foster their education. Independence and child-centred learning is an integral element to our school life whether it be educationally, physically or emotionally.

Our school building which was developed in partnership with the children, parents, staff and all stakeholders ensures that it meets the needs of our pupils and enhances their learning experiences and values. The children are taught in large open-plan learning spaces, which allow year groups to work and grow together – developing a strong sense of community. These spaces promote opportunities to teach in flexible groupings meeting the needs of all of our pupils along with our staff.

The spaces are carefully designed to aid transition between and across Key Stages. Phase 1 houses our Nursery, Phase Two sees Reception and Year 1 working alongside each other based on embedding the characteristics of effective learning. Phase 3 mixes Year 2 and 3 and Phase 4 hosts Years 4, 5 and 6, all creating a rich learning environment for every member of our school community.
