A team of Batemans trustees has been working hard on setting out the future plans for our new school in Chennai, India.
The vision for the Satkaarya school reflects the transformational aims of India’s 2020 National Education Policy, providing inclusive, equitable and quality education in accordance with the UN’s 2030 development goals.
The principles at the heart of the vision include:
- In a safe environment, we aim for children to develop high levels of communication, whether this is through the development of literacy, numeracy, IT or artistic expression; and
- We aim to develop the unique character and potential of each child where they can feel emotionally secure through an advocacy of compassion and care, throughout their learning environment.
The charity’s curriculum committee includes two former head teachers and others with extensive experience in education. Trustee Marion Mills presented an overview of the plans at the annual Batemans Spice Lunch in September.
