Cranford House is widely recognised for its excellent pastoral care.
We are committed to developing our pupils as well-rounded individuals who can realise their full potential: academically, creatively, spiritually and socially. Support, care and a strongly nurturing approach, focused on each child’s well-being, runs through the school. The ethos in the Junior School reflects the belief that building self-esteem is key to success and that happy, confident children make good progress.
Our five values underpin all aspects of school life and pupils, staff and parents are encouraged to reflect these in their work together. Mutual respect, support for each other, tolerance and true generosity of spirit are fundamental to a Cranford House education. Within the school there is a strong community feel; the older and younger children have many opportunities to work together for the good of the school through the House system, School Council, charity events and help in the classroom.
Form Tutors, Heads of Key Stage, the Head of Junior School and Matron all play their part in providing individual pastoral support, whilst in the classroom, pupils have PSHE (Personal, Social, and Health Education) lessons within the curriculum, ensuring they develop an understanding of the world around them and have help to make informed decisions on a range of topics.
"The quality of the pupils' personal development is excellent. They relish opportunities to take responsibility and demonstrate an eagerness to contribute to their community."ISI Inspection Report, Nov 2014
