Congratulations to Edgebury Primary School in Chislehurst for retaining their ‘Good’ Ofsted grading following a short inspection to the school on 5th June 2018. Edgebury Primary has been part of the NAHT Aspire Partner School Programme since Summer 2015, so this is a great way to celebrate three years in partnership. Good to see both Learning and Life Skills and Connected Curriculum being mentioned, too!
Edgebury Primary joined a local NAHT ASPIRE partnership in 2015, whilst preparing for expansion and major building work.
The school was quick to utilise the ASPIRE programme and started with a revisiting and launching school values. Leaders successfully aligned features of the partnership with school priorities. For example, Learning Conferences supported their school improvement plans for greater learner engagement and mentoring.
In the second year, Edgebury implemented Learning and Life Skills alongside preparation for changing their wider curriculum offer. School Leaders ensured a smooth transition by utilising the ASPIRE partnership to support implementation.
