EARLIER this year, St Clere’s Ofsted report awarded the school an “Outstanding” for it’s contribution to community cohesion. You only have to attend the East Tilbury Community Day to appreciate why. The community means a great deal to St Clere’s. it is one of the building blocks of the school.
Indeed, many of the teachers are former pupils and so feel passionately about their area. That means the Stanford area and also the East Tilbury area as well.
It does give the school a unique feel if not a unique selling point. Some people or organisations use the word family as part of some shallow coroprate speak. At St Clere’s they not only mean it, they prove it.
We spoke to Felicity Squire to learn a little bit more about the ethos.
