Vision Day (Oct 2016)

  Inspire to achieve; persevere to succeed.

Gascoigne Primary Vision Day (3rd Oct 2016)

Our PATH (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope)


On the 3rd October 2016, staff including: senior leaders, teachers, caretakers, cleaners, cooks, midday staff, governors, children, parents, governors, LA representatives, secondary feeder head teacher, PACE representatives came together to discuss and shape the vision for Gascoigne Primary School.  The discussion was captured by a very creative Kat Booker who drew visual representations of the discussion and left us with an amazing Vision Day poster at the end of the day.
