What we’re about
Whilst we believe that education should be fun and that coming to school should be an enjoyable experience for all of our children, we take the issue of learning very seriously.
It is our duty to ensure our children are ready to flourish at secondary school and have the capacity to be successful in what will be their 'modern Britain'. For this to happen they must reach acceptable standards of literacy and numeracy. They must have a keen sense of what it is to be 'British' in a Britain that celebrates the differences we all have in our life choices, relationships and, indeed, opinions.
Staff work extremely hard to ensure that all of our children’s potential is both recognised and realised.
No child at Peafield Lane should ‘slip through’ the net. We firmly believe that ALL children should be able to read and write by the time they start secondary education, regardless of their starting point in life.
These values are central to what we believe will ensure our children will become the very best of people:
We come to school for a reason - that our children will grow to become adults who will make the world a better place.
When we enjoy what we do it becomes so much easier to apply ourselves. Life should be something we all enjoy, after all, we only get one.
You don't win the lottery without buying a ticket. We want our children to want to do well, to achieve great things.
You cannot control the thoughts and actions of others; only your own. It is up to us to make ourselves the best we can be
By the time our children are ready to leave our school we fully expect that they can look back on their time here and at their personal achievements with a sense of pride and that they can look forward to secondary school confident that they can achieve whatever goals they set themselves.
Whenever people come to visit our school they are impressed by the things they see. Classrooms ‘buzz’ with children going about the business of learning. A practical, hands on approach to learning creates an atmosphere in which children are intrigued by the different experiences they are introduced to, where they are encouraged to ask questions and to search for answers. If you have not been to our school before and want to know more then we strongly suggest contacting us for a visit.
