Who We Are
Gainsborough Primary School is a one-form entry community school with a Nursery, Preschool and a Children’s Centre. The children in our care range from six months to eleven years old. We admit up to 30 children in each of our classes.
We joined the Primary Advantage Federation in April 2017. This partnership helps us to share good practice and gives us the opportunity to draw on the expertise of curriculum leaders and lead practitioners which acts as a form of Continuous Professional Development for our teaching staff. The Primary Advantage Federation is overseen by Sian Davies, Executive Principal.
Jenna Clark, our Executive Headteacher, leads teaching and learning across our school and she is supported by a strong Senior Leadership Team. In the 2021-22 academic year, Miss Clark will be taking maternity leave. In her absence Miss Rebecca Mackenzie has stepped in as Headteacher. Miss Mackenzie, Headteacher of De Beauvoir one of the Primary Advantage Federation school, is an experienced Headteacher and will be on hand to support the Senior Leadership Team acting as the point of contact for parents, children and staff.
As a partnership, we seek to maximise efficiency and effectiveness by capitalising on centralised services and sharing systems and procedures.
