A national network
We have developed partnerships with a wide network of schools across England, Scotland and Wales. These reflect the breadth and strength of the nation’s education system.
The variety of these schools is crucial, as it provides the best chance of finding the school that best suits each individual young person – from busy, urban independent day schools to cosy rural buildings for the youngest prep school boarders; from modern state comprehensives with boarding provision to traditional single-sex settings; from weekly and flexi-boarding to full-time boarding.
Regardless of physical, geographic or academic differences, these schools are united by their desire to welcome and support SpringBoarders to join their school communities. Each makes this commitment through our accreditation approach – a standard of excellence covering three vital areas:
• Pastoral care Supporting attachment- and trauma-informed practice
• Building best practice Sharing resources and guidance
• Financial commitment Providing all, or most, of the funding needed
Each year, RNCSF organises an annual Schools Day to bring together more than 100 colleagues from schools within our network, to share best practice and discuss how best to ensure that SpringBoarders thrive within their settings.
Throughout the academic year we host training and awareness raising days to encourage the schools within our growing network to share best practice and discuss how best to ensure that SpringBoarders thrive within their settings.
