There are many opportunities for our children to develop a sense of belonging within the local community. We have strong links with our transition schools, getting to know the children before they arrive from their Key Stage 1 school and also sharing information with the secondary schools. We are part of the Derby Pride Trust, working closely with Derby Moor Community Sports College, other local schools and Trust partners such as Derby County and the University of Derby who regularly offer their support.
We recognise the diverse nature of our community and hold regular faith days, where we absorb ourselves in the culture and traditions of the six main faiths – Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
We are delighted to be sponsoring a child from a Maasai tribe through his secondary education in Kenya. Without our support, David would not be able to attend school. Our children learn to develop empathy towards others and compare and contrast their life with children in other parts of the world. Click here to read our latest news about David. Further information can be found in news articles here.
“The school provides pupils with a clear moral code, where everyone is welcomed and valued. There are lots of opportunities to celebrate everyone’s heritage.” OFSTED 2013
