The philosophy of our school is based upon principles which are holistic, inclusive, aspirational and progressive. We are a school where attainment and achievement matter. We recognise the importance of teaching and learning. We also recognise the fundamental importance of esteem, attachments, relationships and belonging. In order to promote these beliefs, we have access to a variety of therapeutic inputs including psychology, neuro linguistic programming, mental health specialists, speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, cognitive behaviour therapist, counsellors, art and play therapists.
At Eton Dorney School we recognise that emotional wellbeing is an essential pre-requisite for academic success, positive behaviour and positive mental health. As a team we work proactively to build esteem, self-image, aspiration and a sense of belonging. We also recognise that the work we do here doesn’t just impact upon the young person whilst they are with us, but lays the future foundations for a happy, meaningful and healthy lifestyle.
We aim to equip our young people with the skills, belief systems and confidence to achieve in school, at home and in the world of lifelong learning and work.
“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls your life.”
