To achieve more able pupils' attainment and progress in-line with national averages.

To involve parents more fully in what their children are learning at school (including year group expectations and subject specific information) so that they can fully support them at home.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Ongoing opportunities for staff development

Our new maths leader will continue the work of developing maths mastery through the Maths Matrix Hub.   

Our science lead will continue working with other Harlow teachers as part of the Ogden Trust initiative which HET is organising. 

Our teachers are working together to coach each other and we will continue to use the other schools within TMAT to support us.

Initial Teacher Training

Currently we work with a number of providers  to train students.  We have several experienced members of staff who are trained mentors on these programmes.  We enjoy welcoming students to join us on their teaching practice assignments as the school benefits too from keeping up to date with the latest initiatives.  This year we have a student working in our Year 2 class. 

Partnership Working

We believe in working collaboratively with local schools for the benefit of all children and young people in our town.

We are proud to belong to:

  • School Improvement Partnership
  • Harlow Education Trust (HET) and consortium (HEC)
