Values and Ethos
Our logo ‘Better Together’ says it all. We are a small school, full of caring, supportive and talented staff. It is a place where mutual support goes hand in hand with excellent education and care. A school whose guiding principles are about making the difficult times manageable, giving pupils a great education and helping them move on successfully to their next phase of learning.
Our Core Purpose and Values
“Pupils’ behaviour and safety are exemplary across the school. Pupils say that the provision does not feel like a school but more like a family. In many cases, they say that the trust that this builds has helped them come to terms with their conditions.”
OFSTED (February 2013)
We recognise the multi-cultural, multi-faith and ever-changing nature of the community we are committed to serve. We provide opportunities for pupils to explore their own culture and have a clear understanding and appreciation of a wide range of the cultural influences that have shaped modern Britain.
We promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Our school values seek to eradicate discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality, disability, political or financial status.
We also understand the vital role we play in ensuring that groups or individuals within our school are able to thrive, free from discrimination, intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them.
At The Children’s Hospital School our spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) education permeates through the curriculum, supports the development of our pupils and includes the teaching and promotion of British values.

Five Ways to Wellbeing
The Five Ways to Wellbeing were developed by New Economics Foundation (NEF) from evidence gathered in the UK government’s Foresight Project on Mental Capital and Wellbeing. The Project, published in 2008, drew on state-of-the-art research about mental capital and mental wellbeing through life.
The ‘Five ways to Wellbeing’ are a set of evidence-based actions which promotes people’s wellbeing. These activities are simple things individuals can do in their everyday lives.
