'For every future, for every child'

School Improvement

We are an Ofsted graded 'good' school: September 2019

At St Gregory's we are constantly striving to improve in order to ensure our pupils receive the best possible education and achieve good outcomes before moving onto the next stage on their learning journey.

Our strengths

  • Teaching of early reading skills through our Read, Write Inc Programme
  • Development of our new curriculum including links with The Marlowe Theatre and Burnet News Club
  • Continuous provision in KS1 building on the strengths of our Early Years Department
  • A safe and positive learning environment where children say everyone is kind and happy
  • Wonderful outdoor space and grounds with our own Forest School on site
  • Our PTFA that are a strength of the school whose fundraising enables lots of extra activities
  • Staff that are caring and ambitious for the children at St Gregory's


This year we are very proud to be supporting other schools in their developments of phonics teaching and developing continuous provision across Early Years and Key Stage 1 in their own schools.

What next?

Leaders and Governors have reviewed the progress the school has made in the academic year 2018/2019 and have prioritised the key areas to focus on. KCSP will continue to  support us in ensuring we carry out the actions so that they impact on outcomes for our pupils.


Key Priority Areas:

1. Ensure all teaching is good and/or outstanding by using accurate assessment data based on prior attainment to inform plans and learning that is pitched accurately so that all children are challenged and make at least good progress.

2. Accelerate progress in writing and maths across the school, especially at greater depth.

3. Improve the rates of progress for vulnerable groups with a focus on SEND and pupil premium children.

4. Improve whole school attendance and implement procedures to track and intervene when necessary.
