We are committed to providing the very best early educational experience for all children in our community. We work closely with three other Maintained Primary Schools in BANES (Newbridge Primary, St Keyna Primary and Paulton Junior School) as a BANES Hub of the South Gloucestershire Learning Alliance. Our Hub Action Plan 2021-2023, has identified 4 areas for development that are common across the four schools.

We are are also very excited to be one of seven school in Bath and North East Somerset that are taking part in the Primary Empowerment Programme which has been established by St John’s Foundation.

With the support of St John’s Foundation we have introduce Read Write Inc. and Reading Recovery this academic year (2021-22) and appointed a new Reading and Writing Support Teacher. We have also introduced Language for Life in the Nursery to identify children with speech and language needs and provide targeted support.

The Primary Empowerment Programme is enhancing the work we do in the nursery and school to better meet the neets of our children and to accelerate their learning and development.

Our current priorities for school development are summarised in the table below.
