Hertfordshire Annual Reviews
Every year we are reviewed by our Hertfordshire School Improvement Partner. Our last review took place in December 2021 and we were delighted for the seventh year running to be judged ‘Outstanding’ in all areas:
“Pupils at The Giles Nursery and Infants’ school benefit from rich, contextualised learning. Consequently, they are absorbed in their lessons and experience many 'awe and wonder' moments which contributes to strong personal development. Staff are experienced and comprehensive CPD is in place to support new members to the team. Senior leaders invest in their staff to build a skilled workforce who focus on meeting individual needs of pupils." Hertfordshire Improvement Partner, December 2021
