In January 1999 The Rt. Hon. John Prescott MP opened the United Kingdom’s first PFI school on Victoria Dock. Such was its popularity that a further two extensions followed in 2001 and 2003, to complete this 240 place Primary School.
The building is owned and maintained to the highest standard by The Sewell Group. The school flourishes in this excellent learning environment where the child is at the heart of the process.
Together the Headteacher, staff and governors have created a centre of educational excellence.
Extra-curricular opportunities are ripe with numerous sports, crafts and skills being developed. The children take part in competitions against other schools in football, rugby, netball and tennis. Extensive links with local organisations support the sport in Key Stages One and Two with visits to the local tennis clubs, swimming baths, ice arena and KC Stadium.
The school holds the Quality Mark 4 for excellence in basic skills. Safe and supportive, our school is proud of its Healthy Schools Award. Through fitness; healthy eating; pastoral care; inclusivity; and safe practices, our children are happy to live and learn together in a multi-cultural community where diversity is celebrated. The school was highly commended during its assessment for the ‘Rights Respecting School Award’. Our Behaviour Support Worker is there for all children. He works with individuals and families to minimise anti-social behaviour within our environment.
