Staff regularly attend training courses to continue their professional development and as a staff team we are committed to a continual path of reflection and development. We are proud that in March 2014 we were recognised as a ‘Lancashire Quality Award’ setting.  We gained this award after completing a rigorous three year quality assurance scheme operated by Lancashire County Council.  We are very proud to display our logo: 
Quality is a journey not a destination’
A statement that we, as a staff team, fully believe in.
