“Achieving Together, Working Together, as a Community”
Welcome to the Quercus Federation.
Quercus Federation began as a collaboration between Hurst Green and Northiam Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) Primary Schools in January 2016. We officially federated at the beginning of September 2016. The schools are Local Authority Maintained Schools and fall under the responsibility of East Sussex County Council. Both schools are small village schools that serve their local communities, being about 8 miles apart. Our Christian ethos permeates through everything we do. We celebrate the individuality of our schools but also firmly believe that they benefit from the support they give to each other. The Federation encourages staff to work together across the schools, pooling knowledge and expertise to produce different but equally challenging and exciting curriculums that support and inspire our children. The sharing of resources also allows the schools to benefit financially and in terms of the opportunities that scale can bring.
The Quercus Federation is committed to the success of each individual pupil and aims to promote high standards of academic achievement. Our single Governing Body has a vital role to play in these ambitions and, with the Leadership Teams, they strive to ensure that the resources provided meet the needs of all pupils and their learning.
You will find out more about our governing body on subsequent pages of this website but if you have any further questions about our role, please do get in touch.
Chair of Governors
The Governors of the Federation support the intention of maintaining a Christian environment where religion is not merely a subject to be taught but provides a vehicle of loving concern. We prepare our children to:
- become caring, resilient and tolerant of the world around them
- develop a love of learning so they become lifelong learners
- demonstrate excellent literacy and numeracy skills
- be able to think creatively and solve problems
- become participants in their wider communities
- maximise their full potential
through the adoption of Christian values.
