“Trimdon Grange Infant and Nursery School is outstanding in every respect.
Its reputation is justifiably high both within the local authority and further afield because of its inspirational curriculum and amazing levels of creativity. Pupils excel in their learning and make outstanding progress ... Standards are consistently well above national averages. All pupils, including more able pupils and pupils achieve exceptionally well. This is a direct result of the stimulating and innovative approach to teaching and learning in which pupils' interests in innovative, practical topics form the basis for learning.” OFSTED 2009

This is a school with which we have had great pleasure in working with over many years, and with whom we've developed several learning projects and publications, including 'The Sounds of Leaping' and 'The Drama of Sound'. On this day we will explore how the principles of Sightlines Initiative can be developed in your daily practice; the influences and inspirations from Reggio, the evolution of the school's pedagogy and the inevitable challenges.
