Our motto of ‘Excellence For All’ means for all. Every child and every member of staff.

We want to ensure that every person in school feels valued and respected and that they are given the chances they need to succeed and flourish. Our exciting curriculum enables all children to be writers, scientists, mathematicians, athletes, artists and more; this is all developed through an engaging series of topics and themes delivered by experienced staff, a wide range of clubs and opportunities and through links with the community. Our children will be ambassadors for change, wanting to create a better, safer and more  charitable community. Fernwood Primary and Nursery School will not just be the biggest school in Nottingham but a beacon of excellence for all.

We aim for our children:-

• to attend school everyday

• to be healthy, safe and secure at school

• to try their very best; to achieve their very best

• to develop oracy, reading and writing skills

• to use and apply their mathematical knowledge accurately

• to build their knowledge and skills, step by step, every day, in all subject areas

• to be creative in their thinking, their actions and their responses

• to respond respectfully to one another and to adults within the school community

• to be resilient, have a ‘can do’ attitude and be proud of their individuality

• to enjoy school life!

We aspire to deliver an outstanding education for all our pupils.

We provide a safe, positive, inclusive environment where pupils are happy, flourish and thrive.  We value our staff and provide an enabling workplace, recognising the knowledge, skills and qualities that they bring to their roles.  We are proud of our richly diverse community and celebrate our differences.  We wish to positively impact on our local and wider community.
