I am proud to be the Executive Headteacher of East Wold and North Cockerington Church of England schools which together form The Spire Federation. At The Spire Federation we pride ourselves on having a true family atmosphere, where each child is a unique individual. We believe our schools encourage each pupil to explore, think and challenge themselves in his or her own way. Individual talents and skills are nurtured so that pupils meet their full potential.
We offer an exciting and engaging curriculum which enables children to develop not only academically but also socially, physically, spiritually and emotionally. Central to this is the fact that we have a safe and secure environment which supports children to flourish. Excellence is integral to all we do. By providing fun and enjoyable activities, we aim to develop children's passion for learning so that they are capable of adapting to the demands of modern life. Our dedicated staff provide learning opportunities that both challenge and support pupils. We provide opportunities for children to explore topics and themes which promotes independent learning and fosters resilience, thus equipping pupils for the future.
Extended provision is offered in term-time through our Rise and Shine Breakfast Club (8.00 am - 8.50 am Monday to Friday) and after-school Buzz Club (3.30 pm - 5.30 pm Monday to Thursday). Local Sports Coach, Dean Wright, regularly hosts holiday clubs in our Beehive building and these are proving very popular with local children and their busy parents!
Our partnership with parents is extremely important to us, and we recognise that children will truly blossom both academically and socially, when parents are involved with their child's learning.
