Stroud Steiner Free School Initiative aims to provide diversity and choice in education for around 600 children from 4-16 yrs in the Stroud area. A practical, social and academic education.
We seek to establish a school in the Stroud area where all will be welcome, regardless of ethnicity, religion, background, income, ability, gender or any other consideration.
A broad curriculum will be offered where creative, intellectual, physical and practical skills will be taught across the whole school, appropriate to the child’s age.
In Steiner education, rhythm and routine is focused on in the Early Years and we would like our children to experience a socially and emotionally nurturing environment which creates space for the development of each child’s unique ability.
As the child progresses through the school, maths, science, language, literature, history and geography are taught, supported by foreign languages, art, movement and performing arts. The child’s knowledge is deepened and broadened in the latter years as they work towards gaining national qualifications in a caring environment which creates a strong sense of self and social awareness.
We need your help. If we are to get the go ahead from the government to set up a new free school, we need to show that there is a demand for this sort of education in this area. So we NEED you to fill in a brief online form saying that you would like your children to go to this school following approval. We are aiming to open in September 2015.
We also need to be able to contact you if you are a supporter, so please join our mailing list by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our next public meeting is on Tuesday 26th February 8pm @ the Christian Community, Stroud. Please get in touch for further meetings and events.
