Be the best you can be
At Priory we are proud of our school, our children and their successes. We offer outstanding relationships between staff and pupils within a Christian ethos of love and mutual respect, where children’s behaviour is exemplary. We believe that all children have the right to learn and achieve in a safe and caring environment, and that it is everybody’s collective responsibility to respect this right.
Our curriculum is vibrant and dynamic; standards broadly reflect national figures at every key stage. Lessons are exciting and fun, and teachers take account of children’s interests when planning activities. We have excellent facilities in a picturesque setting including a Sports Hall, Children’s Centre, Before and After School & Holiday Club, and extensive Information and Communication Technology within each classroom.
We have very positive relationships with parents, and all staff are always available to listen and act on their concerns. Children thrive when schools and families work in close partnership, and as such we value highly parental involvement in their children’s learning.
We have close links with the adjacent Trentham High School, and are Associate Members of its Co-operative Trust. Our pupils regularly use their facilities, including their swimming pool and new TV recording studio. We work closely with their specialist teachers who enhance learning in subjects such as science, sport, dance and performing arts. From September 2012, if your child attends Priory, they will have priority for admission to Trentham High in Year 7 over straight-line distance criteria usually applied to High Schools.
Our over-arching aim is to ensure that every child’s experience at Priory has a positive and lasting impact on the rest of their lives. Expectations are high at Priory and our mission is to be the best that we can be in every way.
