Vision Statement for the Federation

Our Vision 

 ‘Love, Laugh, Learn’

Respect,   Resourcefulness,   Reciprocity (teamwork), Reflectiveness,  Resilience

The loving attachments between a child and their family are the most powerful influence on a child’s wellbeing and development. We seek to complement these loving relationships through the role of a key person. Every child has the right to actively participate in environments that are safe, inclusive and stimulating.

As educators, we endeavour to create spaces and experiences that are meaningful, well planned and offer appropriate levels of challenge so children can become deeply involved in their learning, play and exploration.

Our aim is for children to thrive in a setting that has the children’s interests at the heart of all that is offered, resulting in high levels of motivation, where every child acquires and consolidates skills and knowledge at their highest level.

Across the Federation we strive to build a place that is unified; a place that embraces diversity, challenge and change. We aspire to a vision and practice that is collaborative in spirit and constructed in partnership with all children, families and staff.
