Our Aims, Ethos and Values


The federation works within the principles of a Nurturing School.  This means that the schools vision is ‘based primarily on the needs of the pupils, the nature of the help provided and the learning experiences involved.’  The school uses nurture group principles for all pupils, which are;


  • Children’s learning is understood developmentally.
  • It is understood that all behaviour is communication.
  • The classroom offers a safe space.
  • Nurture is important for the development of self-esteem.
  • Language is a vital means of communication.
  • The importance of transitions in children’s lives is understood.


The nurture 6 principles were developed by educational professionals Eva Holmes and Eve Boyd (1999).


All staff are dedicated to giving children, ‘an unconditional commitment to their well-being’ which therefore gives the best opportunities for pupils to grow developmentally and learn within their educational experience.  The aim of the federation from this is to give pupils the best opportunity for their future, in terms of their relationships with others and their continuing education and future employment.
