Our school is located on a large attractive site with lots of green space which supports outdoor learning and our school building provides us with excellent facilities including generous ICT and library facilities which support life long learning and a ‘Space for Sports and Arts’ for school and community use. We have a truly excellent learning environment for the children.
OFSTED 2015 reported, ‘The new curriculum is matching pupils interest and expanding their wider interests. The balance of subjects is extremely effective and the school has many strengths, including modern foreign languages and PE.’
We value achievement and attainment. In recognition of this we have been awarded the Basic Skills award. We have also been awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark, the Healthy Schools Award, the Active Mark for exceptional delivery of the National Sport Strategy and the CITB Gold Award for developing pupils’ economic awareness. We are currently preparing for the Arts Mark too!
We strive to raise aspirations, develop talents and to ensure that all children receive a rich, broad and balanced curriculum. We promote ‘Adventurous Learning’ by working in partnership with services across the City – Libraries, Museums, Galleries and Leisure Services.
We are committed to keeping children safe. We provide a safe environment in school for the children and promote good behaviour. The curriculum includes materials and activities designed to help children to develop self confidence, healthy attitudes and personal safety. All our staff have received ‘Child Protection’ training.
The Child Protection Officer is Mrs. Stacey (Head teacher).
The Safeguarding Governors are Miss. Cosgrove and Mr. Finch.
OFSTED 2015 reported:
- The behaviour of the pupils is outstanding.
- Behaviour around the school is often exemplary.
- Pupils value all that their teachers do for them.
- The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding.
- Pupils say they feel very safe. They are full of praise for the help they receive and the caring attitude of staff, especially the learning mentor.
- Pupils are eager to accept responsibility and this is reflected in their exemplary behaviour.
Parents should be aware that the school will take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. In cases where the school has reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff have no alternative but to follow Liverpool Child Protection procedures and inform Social Services of their concern.
Parents will not always be fully informed of concerns unless staff are certain that the safety of the child will not be prejudiced by their doing so.
