CEDF Panjabi School aspires to become a nationally outstanding supplementary school.
One of CEDF’s key aims is to become an excellent example of best practice within the supplementary education sector in West Midlands. The school has established robust partnerships with supplementary and mainstream schools in the West Midlands.
The school has a committed management body, teachers, classroom support staff and volunteers. The common attributes of all our staff are a high level of commitment, flexibility, punctuality and the ability to work hard in a team to achieve the school’s vision.
We are a school committed to providing an excellent education within a community that values and respects each child and the qualities each brings. We welcome parents into the school and are fully committed to a true partnership between the child, home and school.
The school mission is to:
1. Provide and facilitate high quality Panjabi lessons to children and young people from Beginner to GCSE & Advanced Level. The school encourages all children to experience learning success and become life-long learners and contributing members of our community.
2. Deliver creative and engaging lessons. All teachers strive to take into account pupils’ diverse learning styles and modify teaching activities and style of delivery accordingly.
3.Increase pupils motivation to learn, build individuals self confidence and ability to work effectively in groups.
4. Celebrate pupils’ success and achievements to recognise the efforts and ensure they are valued members of the school community.
5. Deliver lessons which stimulate childrens’appreciation of Panjabi culture so that children may understand, enjoy and participate in cultural activities, festivals, rituals, celebrations and appreciate the rich heritage. Furthermore it is valuable as pupils grow older they will want to explore their roots, family’s origins and think about how they as an individual fit into their own communities including school, friendship groups, family and relatives. It helps to form a strong sense of identity, appreciate other cultures and to express themselves.
6. Develop strong, supportive partnerships with all stakeholders including parents / carers, local authority, relevant agencies, mainstream and supplementary schools. This results in sharing of information, resources and ideas.
