The prospectus for Kings Somborne Primary School turned out to be a real labour of love. But we think it was worth it. The new headteacher, Julie Way, sees the children at the heart of everything she’s doing to improve the school. It’s already basking in a ‘Good with Outstanding Features rating from Ofsted but Julie is determined to move the school forward to even greater heights in the coming years. We sat down and her passion for the children was obvious straight away. Our thinking was that we should have the children write the prospectus to reflect Julie’s enthusiasm about their involvement in every aspect of school life. Who wants to hear the same old corporate business about curriculums and uniforms anyway? All that is covered on the website so the prospectus can concentrate on explaining what is really different about Kings Somborne Primary School. The handprint idea and strapline ‘where every child makes their mark’ ties in perfectly and each child has one handprint in the finished document. The end result is just charming and has been universally well received in the local community. “It just looks amazing and just what we envisaged in the first sketchy meeting we held. It is just ‘so’ this school! Can’t thank you enough.” Julie Way, Head Teacher.
