Mission and Values



Our Federation’s mission is to work together to create successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.


With our values we aim to:


  • Provide a Christian ethos relevant to all areas of school life
  • Ensure a happy and caring environment in which all children and adults feel safe and can express their individuality
  • Have high expectations for children in our care by providing an appropriate challenging curriculum which is inclusive and accessible to all
  • Expect high standards of behaviour throughout the federation
  • Ensure equal opportunities for all
  • Model and nurture good social, physical and spiritual development
  • Celebrate achievement in all areas
  • Ensure Governors are committed and involved in the life of the federation
  • Liaise effectively with parents, guardians, carers and the wider community
  • Foster an awareness of and respect for the environment 




The Christian values of love and compassion for others, kindness, tolerance and respect are at the heart of our learning journey together as The Swallowtail Federation.


The schools work together to provide the best possible education for every child. Each school retains its own unique identity, yet benefits from collaborative working.


We regularly organise events which bring the children together to widen their learning experiences and opportunities.


The staff share their strengths and skills and have greater opportunities to develop their professional expertise. This has a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning and enables us to deliver an exciting and relevant curriculum for all of our children as we believe that learning should be creative, innovative, inspiring and irresistible!


Through our shared vision, 'with friendship, trust and kindness we fly' staff, parents, governors, children and the local community all play their part in our learning and in achieving excellence in everything we do.
