Shaftesbury Primary School is a large multi-cultural, inner city school where there are over 40 languages spoken. For over 90% of the learners, English is learned as an additional language. We also have a mobile pupil population.
The school’s staff team acknowledges that we have children who join us from different starting points in all year groups, but that does not stop us from having the expectation that all children will make very good progress in order to maximise their potential: be they very able children, able children or children who find academic learning challenging. The school takes an inclusive approach and structures it’s teaching and the education it provides in order to personalise learning.
