Whole School. Whole Child.
At The Primary First Trust, we talk of School Development, rather than the more familiar School Improvement. Why? Because we believe that all schools can develop regardless of where they are on their own particular journey - even 'Outstanding' ones. We look at the whole school to develop the whole child. And this demands more than a narrow focus on academic outcomes - that's a given.
It embraces curricular and extra-curricular development, optimisation of the learning environment, the innovative use of IT, outdoor learning and wellbeing. Part and parcel of this of course is a relentless focus on teaching and learning and a deep commitment to career and professional development for our staff.
