Developing future leaders


Every member of staff, regardless of their role, is a leader. Each adult in school focuses on their own learning as a teacher and on the outcomes for the students they teach. This brings opportunities to make decisions that significantly impact on teaching, learning and whole-school development. There must be a collective commitment to foster continuous improvement. In doing so we will all promote and sustain success for our schools and classrooms which serve a range of pupils from advantaged and disadvantaged communities.


Leadership which improves the quality of classroom teaching and ensures resources are directed at priorities which positively impact pupil outcomes delivers a high return for the funding invested. This is because the improvement of a smaller group of influential leaders, has an impact on a much larger group, the entire staff.




Safeguarding Statement


St Thomas’  Federation is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all our children in school. We believe that pupils have a right to learn in a supportive, caring and safe environment which includes the right to protection from all types of abuse; where staff are vigilant for signs of any pupil in distress and are confident about applying the safeguarding processes to avert and alleviate any such problems.


 Safeguarding is about ensuring that everyone is safe from harm – safe from bullying, safe from people who could abuse, safe from discrimination or harassment – and that we all feel safe in our environment.


 Our schools are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
