Buckhurst Hill Community Primary School
Our vision is that every child in our school:
“There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in.”
Desmond Tutu (1984), South African Anglican cleric and theologian
Our guiding principle is the philosophy of Trauma Perceptive Practice. Being Trauma Perceptive encourages us all to think and act more boldly, through our values, policies and practice. This is vital in helping us to understand how to effectively support children and young people in our school and beyond, whilst enabling us to create safe places where all can flourish, become resilient and learn.
“The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think, and what you do is who you become.”
