NEW WHITTINGTON COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL
If so New Whittington Community Primary School may be the school for you!

- We will have high expectations of all our pupils and put their needs above all else
- We will measure success less in raw statistics and more in how much difference we 'add on' to a child between entering our school and leaving it
- We will use assessment to identify the skills and knowledge of pupils early, and target our teaching towards tackling weaknesses where they exist
- We will ensure our pupils know what they have to do next in order to make progress
