Creativity, nurture and excellence are at the heart of everything we do at Peter Gladwin Primary School. Through growth mindset, our children are encouraged ‘to be the best they can be’. The children are praised for challenging themselves and taking risks in their learning. In our most recent Ofsted we were judged to be Good, the inspector noting that ‘the school’s motto, Dream, Believe, Achieve, is at the heart of all you do. Your belief is that every child can achieve’. Our positive partnership of child, parent/carer and teacher is central to our children’s success at Peter Gladwin and beyond.
Peter Gladwin is situated in the heart of Portslade old village, close to the South Downs. We are so fortunate to have a wonderful school with beautiful natural grounds. This space lends itself to the provision of many and varied outdoor opportunities for our children. We are a trauma-informed and attachment-aware school, with our children’s safety and wellbeing at the heart of all we do.
