Waldorf is different
Many things make Moorland Waldorf School different from other independent and state schools.
Moorland Waldorf – an extraordinary educational experience for your child and your family:
- Our teaching is driven what is best for the whole child and the curriculum directly reflects the developmental stages of childhood.
- We value the natural world and spiritual aspects of human existence, as well as academic excellence.
- The curriculum is based on principles of child development, not measured by other success criteria.
- We use the arts, creative activities and the spoken word (through storytelling and poetry) to support academic development.
- Certain activities, not always emphasised in mainstream schools, are central to the curriculum at the Moorland Waldorf School: art, music, handwork/woodwork, outdoor learning, and two foreign languages.
- We make full use of our beautiful outdoor environment, integrating outdoor activities into our main curriculum.
- The class teacher stays with the same class for several years developing a strong educational bond as the teacher gains a deep understanding of each child’s unique learning style.
- Learning is non-competitive. The teacher writes a detailed evaluation of each child at the end of each school year.
- The use of electronic media by young children is discouraged in our school.
