About the elephants

Why have we chosen elephants for our logo?

Elephants are extremely intelligent animals and have memories that span many years. They form deep family bonds, and live in tight matriarchal family groups. When a calf is born, it is raised and protected by the whole matriarchal herd. Elephants engage in greeting ceremonies, complex communication, courtship, teaching, and communal care. They also display signs of grief, joy, anger and play.

It is because elephants are so good at looking after their young that we chose them as our logo and we have created two cuddly elephants, Blue and Buttons, to help communicate with our younger children. They have also proved very popular at our foster carer recruitment events!
