“Leaders at Latton Green are ambitious and have high expectations for the pupils and staff at the school.”
“Middle leaders’ roles are well developed. They play a vital role in the school, providing specialisms in such areas as history, art and religious education. As a result, the curriculum is rich and well developed. Pupils’ individual interests and talents are nurtured well.”
“Parents are very appreciative of the many different experiences that pupils are offered. As one wrote, ‘Latton Green offers our children various experiences such as holding a cultural day, visiting a Mosque, going to Lea Valley Farm and having baby chicks hatch in the classroom, which was wonderful.”
“The trust invests well in the development of leaders, teachers and teaching assistants at Latton Green. Many opportunities are provided for staff to take part in training or to see outstanding practice in other schools. Leaders are keen to ‘grow their own’ teachers and have done so very effectively. They are confident and competent teachers who have quickly developed their leadership of, for example, music, phonics and Spanish across the whole school. Leaders and governors take great pride in showing the successes that staff have had in taking on wider roles within the school or trust. Staff say they are very appreciative of the opportunities that leaders offer them.”
