On 18 November, senior leaders, foundation stage co-ordinators and practitioners from across London attended a development day which was hosted by Culloden Primary staff.
The focus of the day was to share Culloden’s innovative early years practice, supporting families and their children before they begin nursery. Attendees also had the opportunity to observe a range of lessons being taught in nursery and reception classes.
The feedback from attendees was very positive:
- “The children are so school ready and the teaching and learning is so rich. The school has such a lovely, welcoming feel. Thank you for having us.”
- “I value the opportunity to talk, ask questions and see teaching in action.”
- “Great EYFS expertise throughout the phase, consistent outstanding teaching and a great assessment procedure to trace progress over time.”
Three of our Y11 students have published an insightful critique of Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy Absent Friends, which was recently performed by London Classic Theatre at the New Wolsey Theatre. The full review is available here. Well done all!
