The community feel of Ganton School is at the heart of all the work we do. It is what drives our teaching and learning and what makes our pastoral care so strong. That sense of community develops first within the school building and then, as children grow and mature, it spreads into the local community. Children of all ages are encouraged to care for their environment by planting and growing flowers, vegetables and herbs. Visitors from many different contexts inspire and educate pupils about their work and their achievements by sharing their experiences with them. Pupils are encouraged to learn about the wider world through the exchange of pictures and work and teacher exchange visits. Work experience placements introduce pupils to the world of work at local supermarkets, churches and garden centres.
Community visits give every pupil opportunities to explore community facilities such as parks, shops, cafes, museumas and galleries. In these settings they can consolidate the skills they have been learning in the classroom. Pupils are encouraged to take part in clubs and other groups which may be developed further in the community such as Film Club, Rugby Club, Gardening Club and Music Club. Children are taught to greet and host visitors and to organise events such as Family Parties, the School Prom, Enterprise Week etc. All these opportunities enhance their Personal and Social Development.
