A word from the headmistress
Catholic education is such, not by recruitment, but by its educational project which “explicitly refers to the Gospel and the teachings of the Catholic Church” (statut de l’EC Titre 1, article 4).
Our concern is the creation of a united educational community which places people, children that is, at the core of its educational project that is open to all diversity with respect to each of us.
It is our heartfelt interest to create coherent learning by giving it meaning, by placing hope in our students and by forming social bonds.
Our school experiences its unique nature through the light of the Gospel: each of us is important; each of us has a place. For each child entrusted to us, we extend an attentive ear and offer benevolent attention.
By believing in your child, we hope to inspire a reciprocal relationship of trust between parents and teachers; this bond is the key to the harmony that will allow us to grow together.
Universal, ecumenical and international, Sainte-Anne’s School is open to diversity and up for challenges.
The force of our faith, love of our profession and trust in our families are the assets by which we progress. And progress, we do!
I wish you a pleasant visit to our site and look forward to meeting you.
Autonomy and communication are priority axes in our education. We further this cause by specific educational and pastoral objectives.
1- Offering an individualized education for a successful scholastic path.
2- Creating responsible and autonomous students to become the adults of tomorrow
An individualized education for a successful scholastic path:
Our establishment welcomes students of 15 different nationalities; the three monotheistic religions are present. All our students, including new arrivals and those with special needs (EIP, handicapped, dyslexic,…), benefit from an education that is adapted to their ability with a concern for the respect of the socle commun (or required knowledge and skills mastered at the conclusion of obligatory schooling). This enables each student to find his/her place and follow an adapted and complete education.
- -Linguistic awakening
- -Command of French as a second language for foreign children (Français Langue Etrangère, FLE)
- -Openness to other cultures (Anglo-Saxon, Provençal, African)
- -Personalized reception of students with learning difficulty
- -Reception of special needs students (EIP, handicapped).
- -Advantage of different tutoring workshops
- -Encouraged development of different cognitive strategies for each child in scholastic situations.
By respecting children’s learning rhythms and abilities, and dialoguing with families and school partners, it’s become possible to help construct growing individuals and to foresee grade repetition or anticipated progression.
Responsible and autonomous students to become the adults of tomorrow:
Autonomy is a condition of successful education and adaptation to the evolution of personal, professional and social life.
Our assessment is that numerous children have increasingly adopted a “wait and see” attitude. If, at times, they seem more mature in their activities than previous generations, their behavior tells us the contrary.
It is crucial to encourage an autonomous process in study methods. It is up to us to develop, for each student, learning potential to last a lifetime and encourage their ability to live together.
- -Recognizing the present to avoid always betting on the future.
- -Respecting a child’s rhythm, adapting activities to his/her needs and possibilities.
- -Developing confidence and helping a child find his/her voice.
- -Weighing one’s self-esteem.
- -Adopting steps to awaken curiosity
- -Developing autonomy by educational practices anchored in the socle commun (or required knowledge).
- -Devising an autonomy chart for specific projects in each section.
- -Establishing coherent instructions given from one section to another (supplementary complexity for each step at a given age).
