Well, I visited one today. I went to St Luke's CE Primary School in Beeston where Eric Whitehouse and his talented team are doing something very special. I think the things that make the school so good are...
- focused and passionate leadership;
- a hand picked and highly developed team;
- talented, energetic, enthusiastic and creative individuals;
- a clear, shared vision driving all aspects of the school;
- a rich curriculum offer built on the basics;
- a stimulating and interesting learning environment;
- inspiring teaching and learning within a nurturing climate;
- tracking of childrens progress and achievements;
- early, appropriate and focused interventions.
This is a great school, releasing a very special kind of magic.
Congratulations to Eric and the team!
