A day at the Farm!

Staff from a local bank approached Nightingale Community Academy about coming to the School for a charity day, in which they could help out in any way that was needed. The team were looking for something in which they could contribute to society and at the same time improve their communication and team work abilities.

Andre, Principal thought it would be a great idea for them to help out down at the farm for the day. The team were brilliant and gave 110% in everything they did. They were really keen to meet some students and have a tour of the School.

Andrea, Vice President of the company said “The day at NCA definitely achieved what we were looking for, we had lots of fun doing the tasks and saw a big difference by the end of the day. We had to communicate effectively and work together to achieve this outcome. However, it definitely took much more effort than we had expected but it was a lovely feeling to know that we were doing this all for a good cause. All in all it was a super fun and great team building day.”

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
