John Clifford School is part of the Chilwell Family of Schools:
The schools in the Family are:
Trent Vale Infant School & Beeston Rylands Junior School (The Trent-Rylands Federation)
We work together in many ways. The children come together to work and we take part in music, dance and sports events together. The teachers support each other and work together on a regular basis. The Headteachers and Deputy Headteachers work together every half term and curriculum groups also meet regularly to discuss teaching and learning across our schools in key subjects.
The SENCos from each school also meet termly to discuss children across the family and to allocate funding as necessary. The SENCos are led by the Family SENCO Carol O'Connor, who is based at The Lanes but works across all of the schools.
The schools have a shared mission statement and remits for the senior leaders in the schools:
