Our vision to ‘Inspire Excellence – Champion Potential and Empower Learning’ is central to our core purpose and desire to make a difference. In the pursuit of this we are wholly committed to the values and aims that we hold to achieving this. These are demonstrated through our:

    • persistence to provide an outstanding teaching and learning environment for all where achievement is recognised and celebrated;
    • determination to inspire a love for learning and a culture of collaboration and communication where barriers are challenged;
    • recognition of every individual’s potential and ensuring a personalised education to nurture this;
    • commitment to secure independence at all levels for each and every learner in preparation for life beyond school and adulthood;
    • promise to value and respect individuality and promote well-being through acceptance and belonging;
    • responsibility to place our learners and their families at the centre of their decision-making;
    • dedication to partnership working internally, externally and nationally so we can deliver a truly integrated approach; and
    • ambition to become a hub of excellence within Haringey delivering training and research in the field of autism.


    SEARCH for Success Ethos

  • The principles and core values we hold are very much part of the Trust’s SEARCH for Success Ethos where we believe the core values shared within The Grove community are key to realising our vision;
  • SUPPORT: We support each other through times of success and times of difficulty
    EMPATHY: We understand each other and make no judgements
    ACCEPT: We accept each other for who we are
    RESILIENCE: We keep trying, even when it gets tough
    COMPASSION: We are kind to each other
    HONESTY: We are honest with others and ourselves
  • We run six SEARCH days across the academic year. On these days, we drop the daily timetable with a focus on whole school activities that focus on developing personal and collaborative achievements and skills.
