A sense of belonging is a part of any family unit—the Boarding Village is a large family unit and requires a greater sense of belonging for it to function effectively internally and with the outside community. The ‘belonging’ approach to the boarding family is directly supported by the leadership and service from within the community; therefore, the boarding leadership framework aims to foster the values that underpin that focus. The boarding leadership framework relies on the ‘Three Key Boarding Principles’ to achieve its aim— kindness, service and forgiveness.
