Welcome to Jordans School.
A Small School with a Big Heart, guiding our children to be kind and courageous citizens
I am delighted to welcome you to Jordans School, a small infant school for children aged 4-7 years old, located in the village of Jordans. We serve the communities of Jordans Village, Chalfont St Giles, Chalfont St Peter, Gerrards Cross, Seer Green, Beaconsfield and beyond.
Our vision for Jordans School extends beyond the classroom and the curriculum to the culture and ethos that is at the heart of the school’s learning environment.
“Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.” (Aristotle)
Our motto: A small school with a big heart, guiding our children to be kind and courageous citizens.
Our core values underpin all of our choices: Kindness & Courage
We place great importance on the characteristics of being curious, trying hard, working through challenges, collaborating as a team, listening to each other and evaluating information, being caring, kind and loving; being brave and thoughtful.
We have a dedicated and passionate staff team that offers an inclusive learning environment. Our curriculum is rich in creativity, learning opportunities, and invitations for discovery; our school day is full of excitement and fun.
Growth Mindset principles across the school develop our children’s approach to new learning, changes and challenges. With a metacognition understanding, the children learn to take risks with their learning. Making new pathways in the brain, they build confidence in how to take on challenges, working through them in different ways and enjoying the rewarding feeling of accomplishment upon discovering answers, solutions and new facts.
Health and Wellbeing is nurtured at Jordans School through the 5 Ways to Wellbeing:
Our children are healthy, active and creative, learning self-regulation skills to make them feel good and perform at their best.
