The International Sharing School aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and open-minded lifelong learners who aspire to build a better tomorrow, through a supportive, respectful and caring environment promoting learning through sharing.
At the school, the importance of caring begins with learning how best to care for ourselves so that students can then move on to caring about others.
The school environment provides care and support for all students to assist them in learning how to manage their behaviour in and out of school, while also helping them to develop a sense of self-worth, respect and tolerance for others.
Caring is more than just understanding how to interact positively with others, it is also about knowing our bodies and also our minds and through this, taking ownership of our minds.
At the International Sharing School, mindfulness plays an important part in the curriculum combined with mediation, with the team focusing on body and mind experiences for self-care and self-understanding, balance seeking and reflection.
Teachers work with students to help them to understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others while showing empathy, compassion and respect towards the needs and feelings of others.
Together at the International Sharing School, the students and teachers work on their emotions, ethics and intuition, allowing children to successfully develop their own emotional intelligence - the most important skill for a true leader.
By creating a sustainable mindset in students they are better able to give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience and are also able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development.
While this approach is important at all levels within the school, it is seen as being most important for the youngest children at the school, those who are part of the Early Years Programme - 4 months old to 5 years old.
In order to achieve the highest standards of learning outcomes in the Pre-School 1&2 and Early Years, International Sharing School Tagus park believes that the balanced, rich and stimulating curriculum offered through the PYP generates a passion for lifelong learning.
“We believe in the importance of developing relationships, between the children, teachers, staff and parents to ensure the best possible start for each child. Learners consistently participate in differentiated learning activities. These child-centred learning activities are facilitated through assessments that are guided by common developmental standards of young learners”.
