To support Waldorf Education in the UK to thrive in the way our vision sets out, we see the following conditions as necessary:
strong leadership and governance,
accessibility of provision, and
political and economic confidence based on high standards.
We will contribute to these conditions by setting the following goals:
We aim toenable as many young people as possible to have access to quality Waldorf Education, including in the Gloucestershire area where our Charity is rooted. Our long-term aim is to establish a state-funded Waldorf school. As we work towards this, we seek also to improve the overall conditions for Waldorf Education in the UK to flourish.
We aim tocontribute to high standards of teacher education, teaching and learning in UK Waldorf schools and beyond.
We aim tosupport a high level of regulatory resilience within Waldorf settings in the UK, and collaborative discourse in promoting and supporting high-quality Waldorf provision and principles which champion neurodiversity and social and ecological justice.
We aim to contribute to the recognition of, and collaboration with, Waldorf pedagogy within the wider education sector in the UK, including as a long-term pioneer in motor-sensory integration, storytelling, and intercultural competencies within developmentally coherent curricula.
We aim towork collaboratively, responsibly, and transparently with a range of organisations towards the accountability, openness and participation of Waldorf Education within a wider field of social development and learning, recognising the leadership of Waldorf UK as the national representative and professional body in the UK, and supporting their professionalisation of the sector.
