As a family we are really happy with St Botolphs. There is so much clarity and communication about all the important aspects of teaching methods, changes and general information.
Providing for our pupils by providing for ourselves
‘From individual character and expertise comes collective strength and excellence’
In 2013, five local primary schools formed a small Collaborative Trust. As five good schools our aim was to provide for our children by providing for ourselves. Our school, Belton Church of England, Long Whatton Church of England, Oxley Primary and Diseworth Church of England Primary Schools have been working together very closely and to the direct benefit of pupils across all five schools.
We receive little support from the Local Authority in terms of quality assurance and monitoring of standards, so we now do this ourselves.
Across the five schools there is a wealth of experience and knowledge that we use to challenge each other in terms of the the quality of what we provide for your children.We are challenged as Headteachers and middle leaders to talk through the school data, to show our competence in assessing performance and to offer the best of our own schools to the others in the group. Chairs of Governors too are involved in monitoring the work of the Trust.
