Welcome to Conisbrough Ivanhoe Primary Academy ...

If you are considering Ivanhoe as a school for your child, please take a good look at this website as it will tell you a great deal about us and about the way we operate. Ofsted have recognised that we are a good school and has praised us because:

"Pupils leave the school attaining standards in reading, writing and mathematics that are constantly above that expected for their age and above other pupils of the same age nationally."

2018 KS2 Results:

  Ivanhoe School Other Conisbrough
Local Authority
Reading 88% 65% 70%
Writing 90% 79% 77%
Maths 95% 69% 72%
GPS 90% 67% 67%
Reading, Writing and
Maths combined
83% 53% 60%

This school outperforms other Conisbrough Schools and the Local Authority as a whole: in 2017 we were the best performing school in Doncaster and we expect to be again when the results are announced for 2018.

But we like to think that we have a lot more to offer. Our mission statement declares:

"In this place, imagination will be as important as knowledge; children will enjoy a creative, enriching curriculum with school trips they will never forget."

We all hold these principles to be very important: we want our children to have high attainment, but we also want them to love coming to school and to get a great all-round education.
