Welcome to Nightingale School's website. My name is Mrs Catrina Tilbury, I am the Headteacher and along with my Assistant Headteacher, Veronica Benjamin, we make up the Leadership Team of the school. Nightingale school is a one form entry school (which means that we have only one class in each year group) and so we are a very small school who pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere.

As a reflection of Hackney itself, our school is ethnically diverse and as a consequence it guarantees that the school has a rich and vibrant cultural mix. This diversity enhances the children's emotional literacy teaching us all patience and tolerance towards one another. We believe that children should be encouraged to have respect for themselves, for others and for their school. The adults in the school community are the role models for the children; they depend on adults for their moral standards and for guidance on behaviour that is acceptable in any given situation.
