Leadership Team

At Gainsborough we have number of key staff that make up the leadership team. Senior and Key Stage Leaders meet after school every week with each meeting having a different strategic focus.

The focus of each meeting varies and can include carrying out work book scrutinies, monitoring standards across school, reviewing the impact of action plans and evaluating the school development priorities.  

The leadership team consists of:



Mrs J Booth - Federation Head Teacher

Miss N Hough - Head of Schools

Mrs J Nurse - Deputy Head Teacher

Mrs J Irlam - School Business Manager




Mrs A Clewes – EYFS Leader

Miss H Woolley – KS1 Leader

Mrs S Taylor – KS2 Leader/English Leader

Mr C Adlington – Maths Leader

Mrs J Proctor – Senior Family Support Manager


The Leadership Team, Governing Board and school staff are firmly focused on ensuring that the pupils at Gainsborough Primary Nursery School achieve the best they can. For 2017-2018 there are five key priorities that we are working on:

KEY PRORITY 1: Leaders, including governors and middle leaders, are relentlessly focused on pupil progress and attainment.

KEY PRIORITY 2: All teaching and learning is at least consistently good across the school in order to improve outcomes for pupils and raise standards. 

KEY PRIORITY 3: Ensure attitudes to learning are consistently positive and have a significant impact on progress.

KEY PRIORITY 4: Pupils make strong progress towards meeting the expected attainment for their age.

KEY PRIORITY 5: Ensure that leadership of EYFS secures good progress for pupils from starting points that are well below expected standards and prepares them effectively for KS1


A safe and supportive environment; safe from hurt by others, in what they say or do; safe to learn within an enquiring environment; encouraging creativity, and a questioning mind.


Smart ways of thinking and learning, behaving and the way in which we present ourselves, as a member of Gainsborough School.


Treat others as you wish to be treated, help each other to be happy within school, greet others with a smile, help to create a happy and enthusiastic place to learn.
