Folkestone Ethos Schools Improvement
The governing bodies of the respective schools and academies that make up FESI recognise the value of school collaboration as a means to build capacity, sustainability and to raise standards within the individual member schools and academies.
The East Folkestone Church Schools have been collaborating in various ways for over 10 years and there is general agreement that the successes of the individual schools have been due, at least in part, to the cross fertilisation that comes from joint working. More recently we have welcomed Castle Hill to our group, thus building even greater capacity. All members recognise that the joint work has to be focused and stream lined with clear recognition that its purpose is to enable individual schools to achieve their goals as well as establishing a collective values base upon which education across our locality is founded. All FESI schools were judged good or better at their last inspection, and this status is expected to continue, due in part to our engagement with one another.
