Windermere School has finished the 2017/18 academic year with another exceptional set of International Baccalaureate (IB) results. In…
At Windermere School, we place great emphasis on the welfare, safety and well-being of the children in our care.
All our children are able to talk freely and openly to any member of staff if they have any concerns on a work or personal level. Staff respond to children in an appropriate manner, offering advice, support, guidance and reassurance in conjunction with our other policies, including our Child Protection Policy.
The Form Teacher or the member of staff on duty resolves minor difficulties, worries or upsets involving any child which arise in or out of the classroom. The child concerned usually participates in any discussion about an incident as this is a valuable part of learning. Concerns about a child’s behaviour, health or welfare, are referred to the Headmaster.
We positively encourage good behaviour and have a system of rewards and sanctions in place to reinforce the positive and discourage the negative. All staff are positive role models to pupils, encouraging the development of good manners and respect for all.
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
