I started the day early at Ebor Gardens Primary School...

I arrived to meet Kathryn Depledge, the headteacher. I went to the fantastic breakfast club which was buzzing and the toast was really good. Then I took part in an intense session of activity with Years 3, 4 and 5 along the lines of our 'Wake Up and Shake Up' programme. The session was fabulous and the children had a really energetic and enthusiastic work out. Kathryn then gave me a guided tour where I met some of her wonderful children and some of her talented colleagues.

The things that make Ebor Gardens Primary School so good are...

  • focused and passionate leadership;
  • a team of talented, energetic, enthusiastic and creative individuals;
  • a rich, creative and skills based curriculum;
  • a bright, stimulating and interesting learning environment;
  • inspiring teaching and learning within a nurturing climate;
  • tracking of children's progress and achievements;
  • early, appropriate and focused interventions.

This is a brilliant learning place with a wonderful learning environment and an excellent team with enormous potential. Kathryn Depledge is leading a great school and a great team who are releasing a very special kind of magic.
