eaton primary school

Eaton Primary School has been part of the GLUU community for many years now. The school has been on an amazing journey of transformation from being placed in special measures following an Ofsted inspection in May 2019, to becoming part of a multi-academy trust, to now enjoying incredible results in their recent SATs.

The Sandstone Trust (, made up of two feeder primary schools and a secondary school, has supported Eaton Primary in its journey through various shared partnerships. We are proud to be playing our part in this journey with bespoke support and EdTech resources.

Since our last blog update on Eaton Primary School, an academic year has been and gone, and 2021 to 2022 has been one of the most successful for the school in terms of SATs exam results. The transformation is remarkable.

This, combined with a successful mock Ofsted inspection, has given gratification to the hard work and dedication of the staff.

Some of the highlights from the December 2021 mock inspections were:

  • The quality of education is good and pupils achieve well across all subjects, including in the core curriculum.
  • Pupils have a very wide range of opportunities which support their personal development and are prepared well for the next stage of their education.
  • Pupils have at least good attitudes to learning and are polite and considerate. Behaviour was exemplary during the visit.
  • The outcome of the review is that the school should self-evaluate as good in all areas. It is possible that once the recommendations below are put into place that leaders may consider whether change to outstanding is appropriate.
  • In the last two years, under the new leadership and with the support of the Trust, the achievement of pupils has improved rapidly. Eaton Primary School’s curriculum is a living, values based curriculum. The national curriculum subjects are the vehicle to inspire the values, knowledge and skills delivered to pupils.

Reading the inspection in full ( gives a great overview of the specific areas that Eaton Primary has improved upon over the last few years. Following this inspection, the school pushed on to achieve these amazing SATs results at Key Stage 1 and 2:

To be where Eaton Primary School is after such a short period of time is an outstanding achievement and is no doubt in part down to their embracing of great EdTech and digital tools through our partnerships with HP, BT and more. That, combined with the dedication of the staff, has made an impressive difference and we look forward to continuing our partnership into the future.
