Brindishe Federation

 

The Brindishe Federation

Three Schools, One Community

The Vision

Our Federation of Brindishe schools respect and celebrate the rich, diverse community that surrounds us. We encourage individuality and ensure that children and staff are empowered to follow their own curiosity from whatever inspires them. We will discover how to become the best learners we can be, developing our knowledge, interests and needs through a diverse curriculum that allows us to follow our own learning journey.

We will be: Committed; Creative; Confident; Empathetic; Curious; Appreciative; Respectful

At Brindishe, we nurture a culture of mutual respect, positivity and curiosity. This empowers our children to become champions of their own learning. We provide a platform for learners to recognise and regulate their wellbeing so they can be physically and mentally healthy and in a position to make the best progress they can.

Leaving the Federation, is leaving feeling valued, empowered and excited to be part of and contribute to a diverse world. To know how to continue to make a difference.

What is a Federation? 

Our federation is made up of three schools that have made a formal commitment to work together under a single governing body. This enables our schools to:

  • work together efficiently and sustainably to raise standards and outcomes
  • improve services and increase opportunities for pupils and staff
  • share resources, staff, expertise and facilities
  • share knowledge and training opportunities

How do we do this?
 

As a group of leaders

  • Aims to make the most of our shared resources, maintain high expectations and secure high standards in a collaborative way
  • Build leadership sustainability and creating opportunities for staff at all levels to receive high quality training and leadership experiences
  • Recognise the importance of individuality, spontaneity and creativity in developing innovation
  • We seek to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of each school by capitalising on centralised services and sharing systems and procedures
  • Offer excellent professional development for current practitioners, leaders and future recruits to the profession

In partnership with each other

  • Work in partnership, pool our expertise and resources to achieve collectively what we may not be able to achieve individually
  • Promote a collaborative approach whilst developing the capacity of each school to serve its own community
  • We have developed approaches which we know make the most significant impact on pupil outcomes

As a community

  • Staff, pupils and families have opportunities for growth through links with our partners, schools and a wide range of enrichment activities
