At Banstead Prep we instil a growth mindset in all children, encouraging them to take a risk in their own learning and always ‘have a go’. This is just one of the many hidden areas of our curriculum. Alongside English, Maths, Science and Languages, the things you might expect to find, our Hidden Curriculum exists to equip every child with adaptable skills to prepare them for the next step on their journey.
Everything from our small class sizes and after-school clubs to our Pupil Parliament counts towards our Hidden Curriculum. It’s about teaching children that mistakes are how we learn, that finding things a little challenging but having the courage to carry on helps us to develop.
