  • Outstanding Leadership

    Our leadership team is skilled in leading teaching and learning, ensuring that rigour and accountability run hand in hand with creativity and flexibility. The staff of John Donne Primary are experts in developing and delivering the primary curriculum. We have made a number of exceptional links with external bodies and individuals that will help us to ensure that we can deliver in the same way in a new provision.

    John Donne Primary is a National Support School. The leadership team includes both National Leaders of Education and Ofsted inspectors. These experiences have enabled the school to grow capacity and expertise. These skills will be invaluable in a new school and will ensure the success of any new provision as it grows to capacity.

    Outstanding Teaching

    There is a proven track record at John Donne Primary of recruiting, retaining and training high-calibre staff. It is essential that pupils belong to a stable environment where staff turnover does not compromise their ability to achieve. The school is a hub school for the School Direct teacher training programme, linked with Goldsmiths University College. This enables the Trust to secure the highest quality staff and immerse them in the culture of the organisation. The expansion of this programme to ensure excellent recruitment and retention of staff would be a key strategy for the new John Keats Free School.
