Love to Learn, Aspire to Achieve!

At Plantation Primary School in Halewood we are a thriving community with a deeply caring ethos at the heart of everything we do. Although we have high expectations, particularly in English and Mathematics, we also value creativity and enjoyment in all lessons and as such were awarded The School Games Gold award in 2017, Healthy Schools for the second time in 2017, recognising our work to ensure our pupils and community lead active, healthy lifestyles. We also have Artsmark Gold (recognising our work in the Performing Arts) and Activemark accreditation. We were also awarded the Reading Quality Mark Silver Award in 2016-17 and the Liverpool Counts Silver Quality Mark for Mathematics in 2017-18. We were also selected in the top four schools for Outstanding  Commitment to PE & Sport in the ‘Educate Awards’ and were announced overall winners at the presentation evening in November 2017! We were 2014 national ‘Premier League’ football champions and are also Knowsley champions in football and swimming. Our most recent OFSTED inspection (October 2014) confirmed that we are a ‘Good’ school overall but with several aspects of our work being ‘Outstanding’, as below:

  • Leadership and Management are Outstanding.

  • EYFS (Nursery and Reception) are Outstanding.

  • Behaviour is Outstanding.

  • Our work to keep children safe is Outstanding

  • The quality of teaching is Good with examples of Outstanding practice ‘in all parts of the school’.

  • Achievement is Good ‘..pupils make good, and at times, rapid progress’.
