Ethelbert Road Primary school strives for excellence in all areas of learning. We are relentless in our drive to ensure the best outcomes for each child.

Children are involved in planning for their learning and can often identify next steps to build on what they have learnt. Their learning targets are also shared with parents so that we can all work together to support progress.

We use assessment to make sure that we are matching learning to the children’s needs, adapting lesson content and approaches to make sure that the pace of learning is appropriately quick where children are confident, but that more time is allowed where learning is new or children are finding it more challenging.

School performance is compared to national expectations through national tests and teacher assessments when children are in Year 6. Children at Ethelbert Road make good progress over time so that the school achieves above the national expectations for progress and attainment by the time the children leave the school at the end of KS2.
