A Shared Learning Community

The Federation of Scapegoat Hill and Linthwaite Clough schools – SLCF (shared learning community) began on the 1st September 2015 and is going from strength to strength. The Executive Head teacher, Deputy Head teacher and Assistant Head teachers now know each other and each of the schools well.  It is essential that the leadership of the schools have trust and honesty between each other and the wider school communities, so that all issues experienced in our schools can be addressed with sensitivity and rigour. Evaluation, monitoring and support for the progress and standards within the Federation is essential.

Whilst the two schools are linked by a common philosophy and by common expectations, they retain their own particular identities and characteristics, each being supported to develop in recognition of this.

Strengthening the capacity of Leadership & Management and Governance by being part of the Federation involves setting targets and leading with strategic direction, enhancing the quality of teaching and learning, broadening the horizons for growth, enterprise and well-being and celebrating success and sustaining the momentum for improvement over time.

Every pupil is at the core of what we do and every pupil deserves success.

We strive to provide quality, inclusive education for our children in schools at the heart of our communities; working as confident individuals, in friendship and partnership. Together we believe in providing exceptional opportunities that allow each of us to flourish, nurture our creativity and, by developing our talents and challenging our understanding, become the best that we can be.

I am involved with the children and their learning and I feel that the Federation is having a positive impact on both schools. I work with a dedicated team of staff, Governors, children, families and communities.

I am proud to be the Executive Head teacher – I love my work and look forward to celebrating achievements every day.
