We firmly believe that in order to move forwards we need to be prepared and able to ‘do things differently and do different things’. We work restoratively with pupils, families and with each other, to maintain the ‘strong community culture’ that Ofsted recognised when they visited us in July 2018.

We significantly invest in the development and training of all colleagues who are equally happy to share their expertise, skills and knowledge across the organisation.
