Delivering equity through education, nurture and ambition
Gossops Green Primary School provides a calm, purposeful learning environment that strives to provide exceptional education and the best learning opportunities possible for all. We have a talented and dedicated team of staff and governors who, along with expertise from The Collegiate Trust, all work together to make learning rich, exciting and purposeful. We are delighted that this has been recognised by Ofsted during our September 2019 inspection, where we were judged to be a GOOD school. Both leadership and management and Early Years were judged to be Outstanding.
At Gossops Green we believe that every child has the right to succeed, to meet their full potential and to understand that high aspiration and dreams are rightfully theirs to own and pursue, whatever their starting points in life might be.
How we achieve our vision
Our extensive experience shows us that emotionally strong children will go on to achieve academically and this is why, alongside delivering our excellent, ambitious curriculum, we place great emphasis on Wellbeing and Nurture at Gossops Green.
We know, however, that life does not always make success as straightforward a path for some children, as it might be for others.
In reality, most of us will find that we need a little extra support at some point in our lives.
Children experience a whole range of events in their young lives which have the potential to affect them emotionally, physically and mentally: loss, bereavement, family breakdown, friendship issues, financial hardship, medical conditions, and academic struggles, are all areas that we know can impact on a child’s wellbeing and ability to cope with learning.
In recognising this, we have made it our mission at Gossops Green to identify any barriers – which could prevent children from meeting their potential – and to find ways to reduce and overcome these barriers so that every child has an equal, fair chance to be successful, happy and fulfilled.
At Gossops Green, we refer to this as ‘delivering equity’.
Our high ambition lies in our unwavering commitment to creating an inclusive environment where all children can succeed.
We ensure, at Gossops Green, that our children are nurtured, feel safe, cherished and equipped with the emotional tools to cope – in an often-imperfect world – so that they can focus 100% on their academic learning and fully meet the unique potential each child possesses.
Our excellent curriculum is driven by four over-arching key themes, which we believe unlock the unique potential that all children at Gossops Green possess:
Spiritual, physical and emotional well-being
Knowledge, skills and understanding
Belonging – local and global

Why Train With Us?
We are committed in our drive to support, train and encourage new teachers into the profession. We have an excellent track record of improving the quality of teaching and learning and welcome students and trainee teachers to our school. We will offer you support, encouragement and a high-quality learning environment. In return we expect hard work and dedication.
At Gossops Green Primary, we aim to build on the strengths and specialisms of our experienced teachers by giving them responsibility for leading a subject in which they have expressed an interest or passion. Where possible, colleagues are teamed in pairs so that EYFS/KS1 and KS2 are both represented in the leadership of the subject. This enables teacher expertise of a particular teaching phase to be shared with a less experienced colleague and ensures that subject leaders have a deeper understanding of pedagogy across the whole primary phase.
In addition, ECTs in their second year are assigned to shadow a particular subject so that they can very early on in their career develop an insight into the wider responsibilities of the teacher role.
