AN OFFICIAL ACADEMY AT LAST!

As you can imagine we are all thrilled after what seems to have been a very long 3 year wait. More information regarding the Trust will be forwarded at the beginning of term.

Gladstone awarded Nurture Quality Mark

We are very proud that Gladstone Primary has been awarded the Marjorie Boxall Quality Award as a ‘nurturing school’.

We will now be applying to be one of the first schools in the country to achieve the Whole School Nurture Award.
