We are proud to be part of the IP12 Partnership. We are one of nine Local Authority maintained schools in the IP12 area who have teamed up to increase the expertise of staff and the opportunities and experiences for our pupils while they are at primary school. By also working with and being supported by our local IP12 high school we are making sure our pupils are ready for transition and the next step of their academic journey.
Our vision is to improve experiences and outcomes for all children in IP12 by establishing a distinctive and sustainable approach to school improvement, created, developed, and owned by IP12 schools. It is founded on the principles of ‘system leadership,’ in which school leaders contribute to school improvement beyond their own school.
Our current focus is ‘to infuse rich vocabulary into the primary curriculum’ which resulted from a greater need of all our pupils after lockdown and COVID, where they had not had the same opportunities to develop vocabulary, oracy skills or social skills as they had previously.
