Federation of Earlswood Schools

A Place to Learn Together

We offer Nursery Provision to Year 6


Welcome to the Federation of Earlswood Schools.  We hope you and your child's time at the school is successful, enjoyable and enriching. 


The governing body of the Federation of Earlswood Schools works with the Senior Leadership Team to define the strategic direction for the school.  This consists of a high-level plan covering several years and the most recent copy is at the bottom of this page.  The areas of focus identified on the strategy overview are then detailed in the School Development Plan (SDP), which is a short-term plan of action.  The governing body monitors the effectiveness of the school in implementing those priorities through visits to the school, reviews by external consultants and reports and other evidence provided at governing body meetings.  

We aim for Governors to be in school regularly throughout the year or meet virtually when that is appropriate, to understand the impact of any new initiatives, to hear from the children and the staff about their work and any concerns they may have. The work of the school and its impact on the children really comes to life when we spend a day a year in school as a whole governing body.  On this day we see classes in action and meet with key individuals involved in delivering the SDP.  The time in school is invaluable in witnessing the commitment of the school to continually improve whilst not forgetting the community feel.  The wonderful behaviour of the children and their engagement in their learning are always a pleasure to see first-hand.  


The last few academic years have been challenging for all of us; the children, parents and carers, teaching and support staff and the governing body.  We thank everyone for their support and encouragement.  This year, as last our plans for the schools are ambitious and we are looking forward to continuing and further building on the successes of the Federation.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via the office at either school.
