Bygrove School

Bygrove is a great little one-form entry primary school serving a multicultural community in London’s historic East End. We have been a National Teaching School since 2013, working with alliance partners to train the next generation of outstanding teachers. We may be small but we think big!

Our pupils are at the heart of what we do. They are happy, friendly and well-behaved and they love learning. How do we do it? There’s no big secret – we work hard at doing the right things and we get help from our friends. Aiming high is our motto and the sky’s the limit! 

What Ofsted said:

“Teaching is outstanding and makes a significant contribution to pupils’ exceptional rates of progress. Pupils greatly enjoy their learning because the work is stimulating and well matched to their needs.

The curriculum is very well thought out so that pupils from all backgrounds can enjoy learning, achieve outstandingly well and gain many skills for their wider personal development. Classrooms glisten with wonderful displays and computers enhance greatly the quality of learning. Residential visits, Spanish days, enterprise projects and inputs from specialist teachers for physical education and music, play a significant part in promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral and social development.”

The LETTA Trust is an approved Kickstart Scheme Gateway organisation. The Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion fund to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month work placements for young people.

The LETTA Trust will support partner schools across Tower Hamlets and Newham to recruit talent through the Kickstart scheme, providing young people in East London with six months of paid employment and a programme to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours for success in the workforce. Local schools will benefit from additional capacity at a time when the school system is under huge pressure nationally.

As a Kickstart Scheme Gateway organisation, the LETTA Trust will provide:

  • support for young people who risk long term unemployment to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours desired by employers in the modern workforce;
  • additional capacity for local schools who are under pressure to maintain high standards of education and care in the face of a global pandemic, and financial and staffing shortages;
  • an opportunity for partner schools to make a significant impact in the local community at a time of great challenge.
