At Nottage we are safe, at Nottage we are respectful.
At Nottage we endeavour to create the optimal learning environment for resilient pupils to find the wonder and beauty of the world whilst embracing creativity and nurturing a lifelong love for learning.
Nottage is our school. Here we can be creative and curious through exciting and positive opportunities to learn. We learn purposefully about what matters as we grow up in an advancing global and technological world.
We are learning to be resilient, respectful, resourceful, reflective, and responsible in and out of school. We are kept safe and we know how to have good, healthy relationships with others.
We understand that although we like to be happy, sometimes we won’t be but, we know how to tell people and who to turn to if we need help.
Our mental and physical health is just as important as our achievement in the important skills we need to find our individual place in a successful future.
