Vision and Ethos for Our School

At Gosbecks Primary school we work together as a team to enable our children to ‘Be the Best they can Be’. Our aim is to give the children the best possible start in life and make their time at school a fun, enjoyable, rich experience. We understand that all of our children are unique individuals and therefore will be treated with respect, tolerance and kindness. These attributes underpin our expectations for all our children so they are prepared as well rounded children when they move onto Secondary school.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, if you would like any paper copies of information you have seen, please contact the school office.

Years 5 and 6 had a go at being CAD engineers - They had a mini project to design their classroom adding mechanical and electrical elements to 2D drawings. Each design studio team presented their finished work to the rest of the class. The children showed a good understanding of the process of building a dwelling from start to finish, as can be seen from the video clip below, and were surprised to learn how many different services were involved. 

As you can see from the images below, the children really worked well in their design teams. In the 3rd image on the top row note how the actions show the debate going on about what fittings should go where on the drawing and the evident frustration when the foreman (the boy in the hat) is explaining why he disagrees with with one of the team :-).
