On behalf of the staff, pupils, parents and governors, I would like to welcome you and your family to Primrose Hill School. If your child is to join us for the first time we welcome you as parents and hope that you will soon feel part of our friendly and caring school community.
Our school is one in which we take a great deal of pride. Our core beliefs centre on providing a happy, safe, secure and supportive learning environment where good order and discipline are preserved to enable your child to achieve academic and personal excellence.
We believe in teamwork, where all members of our community are valued. The staff are one part of our team. They are all hardworking and committed; we expect nothing less. Parents form the second part of our team, working with their own child and supporting school in a host of other ways in order to help all of our children reach their true potential. The last and most important members of our team are our pupils who are encouraged to participate fully in the extensive programme of events and opportunities we offer.
Confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. This website provides information you may require initially but it is only through personal contact with myself and the staff that mutual trust and understanding can develop, which should be the basis of our shared responsibility.
Mr G Caunce
We live in an increasingly competitive world where pupils compete on a global stage to gain employment. At Primrose Hill we endeavour to deliver a curriculum that equips pupils for the world of 21st century work. We believe in delivering Quality First Teaching to provide pupils with the very best education. We are investing heavily in ICT, equipping pupils with the skills to become proficient in the digital world in which we live.
We also believe in educating pupils to lead a healthy lifestyle and want our pupils to be as fit and healthy as possible, after all a healthy body equals a healthy mind. We are currently using sports premium funding to provide pupils with high quality sports coaching and competition. In addition we want pupils to understand that the world around us is not an infinite resource and we aim to develop an awareness of sustainable living wherever possible. We utilise outdoor learning opportunities to raise pupils’ awareness of our environment and are very proud of our ‘eco school’ status.
Finally, we believe that pupils achieve best when they are supported by parents and carers. We passionately believe in the importance of ‘working together to make a difference’ and we try and involve families in school life wherever possible. In addition to parent workshops, which we host regularly in order to provide information on how to support your child with their learning, our PTFA deliver a plethora of social events for families to engage in school life. This helps to create a wonderful sense of community at Primrose Hill and makes it a very special place for everyone connected with our school.
We are passionate about our vision and firmly believe it will allow pupils to develop a confidence and enthusiasm for learning and indeed life – an outlook that will help them to succeed in whatever they choose to do in the future.
