Everyone Leaves Ready

‘We believe happy children learn, so we deliver learning in creative ways. Our children develop a passion for free-thinking, enabling them to be life-long learners...’


Everyone Leaves Ready

Everyone Leaves Ready is a project I have created and we as a federation are implementing to support all of our children and all of their families to ensure that they all leave us with the best possible chance of fulfilling their potential, of being happy and successful throughout their lives.


There are currently 8 different aspects to the project, which come together to build all of our children’s self-esteem, to let them all sparkle with the confidence that will see them try anything and genuinely believe they can succeed if they are committed and driven.


Everyone Leaves Ready is my response to seeing too many children who just don’t know how brilliant they are and how absolutely amazing they can become. The single biggest barrier to success we have is the limitations we put on ourselves. We want our children to go beyond this, not to fear failure, to aim for the sky and reach as high as they can…
