Welcome

Welcome by the Headteacher

These pages are designed to give you a flavour of our school, its priorities and values and some insight into what your child will learn while they are with us. However, the best way to find out about us is to visit us and see for yourself. That way you can get to meet me and let me detail my visions for the school to you in person. I can also answer any questions you may have too.

Our school is set within the village of Reedham and the original buildings date back to 1871. Over the years the school has expanded and been modified. As of January 2017 we have 49 pupils on roll, aged 4-11, with space for 80. The school is arranged in three mixed aged classes. Each class is taught by a qualified teacher who is supported by a teaching assistant. Our Foundation Stage class has the benefit of a large room, a back room and a good outside play area. Each classroom is equipped with computers and Ipads for pupil use, in addition to smart boards to aid teaching and learning.

The grounds have been developed in recent years, with a trim trail, a tyre play area, a pond and nature area and off site school field. There is also a heated swimming pool on site and all pupils have swimming lessons here during the summer term. Our school aims to provide a child centred, broad and balanced curriculum, employing the most effective methods of teaching and focusing on developing children’s learning in all areas. The school has close links to the church and as such Christian values underpin all we do.

We aim to give our pupils as many opportunities for learning as possible and offer an increasingly wide range of after school clubs and lunchtime activities. We build confident, enthusiastic learners in a nurturing and safe environment. Our tolerant, polite, and responsible children take pride in everything they do. They are taught good manners and respect for each other and are exceedingly well prepared for the next stage of their education. Pupils are encouraged to become independent learners, who are able to think for themselves and treat all around them with respect.

We are proud of our achievements and continually seek to improve. If you would like your child to become part of our school, please contact the school office and make an appointment to meet us and have a look around. I look forward to meeting you and sharing the learning journey of all your children.
