At Heathfield Knoll School our core value is happy children - we excel in fostering a mental toughness, emotional control and a commitment to achieving goals. This ability to dig deep in more difficult times and to work at something children find challenging is a crucial skill to equip them for the excitement and inevitable turbulence of life. Resilience allows people to seize opportunities, no matter what their future ambitions or hopes.
While we encourage and support children’s ambitions we place emotional well-being on an equal footing with academic achievement. We create opportunities for children to find out who they are and explore it. We are keen to forge happy young people who can embrace difficulty.
Being emotionally resilient will make children more successful learners, greater thinkers and improve their social skills; and overall make them a happy individual.
