Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our children had the opportunity to learn in school how to be happy, how to get along with others, how to fulfill their greatest potential? The Kadampa Primary School Derbyshire, a newly arisen school based in Derbyshire, United Kingdom, aims for just that. The Ofsted and UK Department for Education accredited school invites students from ages 3-11 years old to a unique system of learning influenced in The Early Years (pre-school) and Key Stage 1 by the very popular Montessori model of learning. Children are encouraged to develop valuable practical skills through outdoor learning and interactive classroom time. While the school has a core Buddhist ethos, it is open to everyone, Buddhist or non-Buddhist.
What makes this institution unique to others, is the attention on developing internal good qualities such as love, respect and compassion. Such qualities then lead a child to have the inner resourcesto solve their daily problems and eventually become a beneficial contributor to society. The carefully selected staff offer living examples of these qualities for children to see and follow. As well, daily guided meditations help the students to cultivate inner peace leading to happiness and contentment. In short, the Kadampa Primary School Derbyshire provides our children the opportunity for a well-rounded, exceptional education.
