Primary School Information

Pupils receive expert help to gain the reading and writing skills they need to do well in all subjects. As a result, pupils make good progress

There is much joy in this school. Pupils value their teachers, and the rich and diverse community in which they learn

Teachers take account of individual pupils’ needs in their good lesson planning. They make sure that pupils, even those who arrive at unusual points in the school year, are quickly assimilated and make good progress

Teaching is strong in the sixth form. Teachers are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects. They show great commitment. Students are fulsome in their praise of the impact their teachers have had on their future education

Lessons are characterised by strong and positive relationships between pupils and teachers. Teachers know pupils well. Often teachers target the learning that individual pupils need because they know them so well

In key stages 1 and 2 teachers plan many opportunities for pupils to deepen their knowledge, understanding and skills.

A very warm welcome to The Bemrose Primary Phase

The School Day

There is an open door policy for all children and parents, allowing children to be dropped off in their classrooms in the morning at 8.40am. Between 8.40am-8.50am children are set a morning challenge linked to the curriculum to engage, excite and get them ready for their learning that day. Parents are welcome to stay in the classrooms during this time to settle and support their child as they start their school day.

At the end of the school day the doors to the classrooms are opened at 3.15pm by the class teacher allowing parents to collect their child/ren. Between 3.15pm and 3.25pm, parents are welcome to speak to the class teacher and/or visit the classroom to explore with their child the work they have been doing during that day.
