St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School ‘Serve the Lord with Joy’


"A cohesive leadership team which is fully committed to a research-based approach to school improvement."

(Ofsted, May 2019)

"Leaders lead through strongly through example and a secure knowledge of how to ensure progress in subjects for all pupils. They monitor the progress that pupils are making in all subjects and coach teachers to help ensure that all pupils continue to make strong progress."

(Ofsted, May 2019). 

Learning is an alteration in long-term memory. If nothing has altered in long-term memory, nothing has been learned. 


We believe in teacher instruction. Our teachers use the 'Principles of Instruction' (Rosenshine 2012) to actively present material and structure the learning.
