We believe that children need to be active participants in their own education and to feel that their opinions will be heard in the wider school community. At The Mulberry House School, we seek ways to listen to the views of our pupils and involve them in decision-making so that they are engaged as partners in the life of the school.
From the Early Years, the children have a variety of opportunities to become involved in their wider community. Throughout the year classes are visited from the local Fire Brigade and Police Service and also participate in weekly educational visits to the local nature reserve, Westbere Copse.
As a culturally diverse community, we work with parents to promote a culture of respect for all faiths (or those of no faith), cultures and lifestyles. As a school we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events and lessons to celebrate this. Events have included; African Day, Indian Cultural Week, Spanish Cultural Week and International Cooking Month among other celebrations such as Hanukah, Diwali and Holi.
