Board of Trustees and Governing Bodies A wealth of knowledge and experience.

Exceptional children Our children are amazing! They are happy to take on new challenges in a safe learning environment and have a thirst for knowledge and a passion to do well. Recognising young people in the workplace We believe in ‘growing our own’. We work closely with local secondary schools/academies and colleges, supporting the Apprenticeship and Work Experience programmes, encouraging young people’s career development within education.
Fantastic classroom practitioners Our children are in the safe hands of a passionate and dedicated teaching team committed to building the foundation for their learning journey to secure brilliant educational outcomes for each and every child. Every child is given the opportunity to celebrate their individuality and to achieve their very best.
‘Providing the best environment for Learning First Aiming High’ We are so proud of our schools. Our classrooms and general learning areas are a fantastic endorsement of the hard work and achievements of all our pupils, which we celebrate at every opportunity. All areas of school show that there is a real ‘growth mindset’ amongst our staff and pupils. We utilise our classroom space very well, creating learning walls so that everyone can see the progress the children are making, which also encourages children to continually self-evaluate their own achievements. The structure of classrooms ensure there are areas for individual or small group tuition, targeted learning areas for projects an arrange of resources for our children to access. We know that a great learning environment helps create brilliant learning behaviours. Therefore, every effort has been made to provide the right facilities for learning - there is no excuse... and in return - the children work really, really hard! We will continue to make sure there is sustained investment in a safe, secure and well-equipped learning environment.
Our focus is on creating and developing opportunities Every single person involved in CHANGE Schools Partnership is focused and determined to create an environment that is receptive to learning for all our pupils. Where children show strengths in particular subjects, we recognise and nurture that ability. Where there are areas for development, we provide the resources and focused support to achieve improvement. But don’t just take our word for it, OfSTED says:
“Pupils’ personal development is outstanding.”
- OfSTED inspection June 2016
How we inspire our children to learn form the very beginning is so important, which is why we take our responsibility for the education of young children in the primary sector very seriously. We encourage creativity and diversity to inspire and encourage every one of our pupils to reach their full potential in all that they do, whether that is in the classroom, through outdoor activities or through extra-curricular activities and supporting families with ‘wrap around’ care.
- Oh yes!
There are so many great opportunities for our children. We want them all to develop a passion for learning; a hunger for knowledge; an enquiring mind and an innovative approach to key areas of the curriculum, that will stay with them always...
... providing a lifelong love for learning... ... and with your help, we are going to continue to do this.
We make sure it is always positive and with passion! We respect every childâ€™s desire to reach their full learning potential in a safe and secure environment. It is vital that we continually review and assess pupilsâ€™ progress; always recognise and reward achievement; celebrate individuality; give encouragement and support when it gets tough and, provide direction and guidance towards attainment, whilst continuing to develop our teaching learning strategies to make sure that we can always deliver great outcomes. This is an exciting and ever-evolving journey. At every point, every single stakeholder has an opportunity to support and make a difference in our young peopleâ€™s lives.
