Creating Outstanding Primary Schools – Excellence as Standard
Creating Outstanding Primary Schools will explore how we can raise standards across the board, allowing our children to compete in the global race, as we strive towards excellence as standard.
Outstanding primary schools are created when dedicated professional teams place children at the centre of their vocation, and ensure that every child matters.
By doing this, your school can reduce the achievement gap between children from different backgrounds.
Make the first step towards creating an outstanding primary school; enquire about attending this primary education course today.

“We are determined to give all children in this country the very best education – for their future, and for our country’s future….We are determined to give all children in this country the very best education – for their future, and for our country’s future.” - Rt. Hon David Cameron MP, 8th July 2013
“I make no apology for having high ambitions for our pupils. But for children to achieve their potential we need to raise the bar…allow all our children to get the best possible start in life.” - Rt. Hon Nick Clegg MP, 17th July 2013
The Government’s vision is for a highly educated society in which opportunity is more equal for children and young people, no matter what their background or family circumstances. For this to become a reality, our education system and primary schools need to be fit for purpose.
There are a number of factors that are key contributors. These include:
- Appointing staff of the highest quality and investing in and developing them
- Treating children as individuals, supporting them well and expecting them to achieve well
- Having staff who are passionate about finding ways of doing things better, with an unremitting focus on learning, development and progress
- Demonstrating high-quality leadership to promote, support and sustain the drive to perfect teaching and maximise learning
A clear common factor across the successful primary school is having high expectations. These expectations come from strong values and they are set in a way that leaves everyone – pupils, parents, staff and governors – clear about what they are. It is then important that those high expectations are applied consistently and never relaxed.
In primary schools a key driver is centred on putting children first, and faith in what children can achieve and teachers can do. Transformational school leaders with a belief that all pupils can achieve high standards, given sufficient time and high-quality support, is an important background to the creation of an outstanding primary classroom.
The audience on the day will include: head teachers/teachers, heads of school, directors of education, directors of children’s services, education consultants, academia, school inspectors and all relevant job roles from across the education landscape. Organisations that will benefit include primary schools, LEAs, voluntary and community sector workers, academia, private sector, and all those with an interest or who are engaged in creating excellence as standard across primary schools.

The aspiration remains that as a nation, the wealth of talent, commitment and ambition that we have in our education system goes much further than it currently does. We need every child, no matter where they come from, to have the chance to aim for a brighter future.
We are incredibly fortunate in this country, to have some of the best heads and teachers in the world. But their talent and commitment should not be restricted to just their schools. It should be celebrated and harnessed to spread excellence throughout the system.
The following key questions will be covered and addressed on the day:
- What does ‘excellence as standard’ mean globally in schools and education systems?
- What do excellent schools do well and how are they led to success?
- How do excellent primary schools sustain their high outcomes for students?
- What is the cocktail of outstanding classrooms and that great double act which is teaching and learning?
