We strive to develop imagination through a stimulating, creative environment where every child has the opportunity to shine.

We follow Read, Write Inc. for the teaching of phonics on a daily basis, and use the Read, Write Inc. reading books to ensure they are matched to the children's phonics knowledge. 

At Gillshill Primary School we aim to deliver all subjects thoughtfully and to make links that are relevant, appropriate and purposeful to the area of learning.
