Message from the Headteacher

Here at Plover we place a strong emphasis on the core skills of literacy and numeracy but also offer a curriculum that is broad, balanced and stimulating. Our aim is to educate the whole child through a rich curriculum and stimulate in order to support an atmosphere of life-long learning. This is reflected in the school ethos. 

As a team, we constantly strive to achieve the best for you and your child and to create happy, creative and successful children. Education is a partnership where together we can build strong skillful and self-motivated pupils with ambition to be the best they can be. 

We aim to ensure parents are kept as up to date as possible. To support this I write a weekly blog. This can be accessed at 


and aims to keep the school community up to date with recent events in a more informal way.
