Case Study Reference: #CSN461-779
Published: 23 November 2014

Why this is leading practice

The curriculum is creatively planned and reflects the multicultural diversity and uniqueness of the setting. The carefully planned and diverse curriculum is organised to support all children. Actively involved parents from all nationalities work with the school to support children in class or to provide workshops which reflect the school’s diversity. School development plans are dedicated to supporting all children and the curriculum provides rich opportunities for high quality teaching. The Foundation Stage team share the same ethos and continuously reflect on their practice. The children feel safe and progress well in a challenging and complex environment.

Impact to date


Rationale / Start Point

Parents and visitors praise the high quality provision. In February 2014 the school was rated as outstanding by Ofsted, and it has continued to improve, developing strong links with other nationalities. The children in Foundation Stage 2 develop French to a high standard by working closely with our French teacher. Staff from the different nationalities work together to create inter-school themes and workshops. The school works to promote the British community within an isolated setting, and encourages the unique child to develop a rich multi-cultural experience.
