When you leave your child at the school gates you are in effect agreeing to allow the teachers and other staff at the school to act ‘in loco parentis’.

This legal definition actually means there are two statutory provisions that relate to the role of teachers acting in loco parentis: first, the Children Act 1989 provides that teachers have a duty of care towards the children under their supervision, as well as promoting the safety and welfare of the children in their care. The level of this duty of care is measured as being that of a ‘reasonable parent.’

All staff value the children as individuals and aim to provide learning opportunities that will build on the children’s strengths and overcome their weaknesses.

Purwell School endeavours to promote different learning styles to motivate each child within the delivery of the curriculum.
