The healthy social life is found when in the mirror of each human being the whole community

finds its reflection; and when in the community the virtue of each one is living.

Rudolf Steiner



  • We recognise that each person is a whole being, with inherent integrity and dignity.  We aim, through all our  human

      interactions, to enhance the integrity and dignity of each person.

  • All persons are of equal and special importance, and we aim to treat all fairly and justly.

  • We aim to provide good governance, following principles of strong leadership, transparency and accountability.

  • To maintain confidentiality and respect privacy.


Within this framework the following are expected:

  • Central to participation in the community, as parents, teachers, trustees or committee members, is the commitment

      to nurturing, honouring and protecting the wonder of childhood.

  • That we are open to listening to all viewpoints, and should respect and uphold others' integrity.

  • That we are loyal to our community in order to safeguard the special character of the education, and to maintain

      its continuity and growth.

  • Demonstration of respect for each other requires empathy and understanding each other's journey.
