Welcome to Pinchmill Primary School where we are proud of our school, every child in it and every one of our successes. Our aim is that each child should strive for excellence and reach their full potential, it is our mission to enable this!
We believe that the years in our school are a vital step in the journey and the future of our children. These years lay the foundations for future learning and develop an attitude towards learning which will last a lifetime. Choosing a school that is right for your child is essential for you and your child’s future. We encourage all prospective parents to come and visit the school where you will be able to see how we teach and learn, find out about the ethos of the school, discover how the schools ‘works’ and gain an insight into the opportunities that your child will have at Pinchmill.
It is our aim to provide every child with a happy, positive and productive learning experience, through the environment and the learning opportunities. Every child is encouraged and supported to do and be the best that they can be. We create a curriculum which is exciting, stimulating, balanced and broadly based. There are constant opportunities and experiences where each child can develop their knowledge, concepts, skills and understanding. The curriculum also promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of each child and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of future life.
We are an inclusive school and everyone is welcome, this is particularly important in preparing the children for the world outside school. Respect, care and courtesy are a priority for adults and children in the school, along with many other values that are essential in preparing for life after school.
Learning is most effective, rapid and stimulating when parents are involved and interested in their child’s activities and in the work of the school. Here at Pinchmill we foster a family ethos, encouraging and welcoming parents’ support in the education of their child. We offer opportunities throughout the year for you to be involved in their learning, and welcome visitors and support in school if you have any free time. We also believe that being part of our local community is essential, we take part in many events in partnership with the community and involve them in events that take place in school. We also have close links with the local church and hold several events there each year. The partnership that we build together is essential for your child’s future here and beyond!
