Our School Improvements
At Priory we have been making great progress recently. There’s no-one better placed to tell you this than the children.

Be the best you can be
I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Priory Church of England Primary School. This is a wonderful school and I am very proud to be the Headteacher here.
Our children are very happy and enjoy coming to school because it is a safe and exciting place to be. Behaviour is exemplary and our children take pride in their work and their school. We are a Rights Respecting school and our children are fully involved in the designing and implementing of our school’s vision. We believe that all children have the right to learn and achieve in a safe, caring environment and that it is everybody’s collective responsibility to respect this right.
We have a distinctive Christian character which can be seen in our values based ethos of love and respect. Priory has close links with the local churches and Reverend Shaun leads weekly worship. Prayer and worship are integral parts of the school day. Our children enjoy opportunities for discussing faith and quiet reflection.
Our staff are fully committed to ensuring all children are well supported and make good progress across the curriculum. Priory has adopted the ‘Learning Challenge Curriculum’ and we aim to provide creative and inspiring lessons. Staff take into account the ideas and interests of our children so that they are fully engaged and motivated to learn. We ensure that speaking, listening and thinking skills are at the heart of all we do as we strive to develop confident, independent learners.
We are a rapidly improving school and our expectations are exceptionally high. Our mission is to be the best that we can be in all areas. 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.
Miss P. Keen
Welcome to Priory. Our school is a friendly school that is always up for a challenge.
The pupils at Priory always have a voice and a say towards school decisions.
We have several groups and councils:
- The Ambassadors
- The School Council
- The RRS Squad
- The Eco Council
- The E-Saftey council
- Peer Mediators
- Play Leaders & Friendship Buddies
- Priory Prefects
Our school has rapidly improved over the last two years. Attendance and achievements have both risen a lot. We have a lovely team of staff who are always here to help. We trust them to help us with any problems-big or small. We also help each other as we are Play Leaders and Peer Mediators.
We are a Right Respecting School and we think of others before ourselves. We have class charters that agree the way we should behave. We believe in rights rather than rules. RRS awards are awarded every Friday.
We have other rewards. Nursery pupils have smiley face sticker awards green, blue, yellow and red. From Reception and up we have merits which lead up to medals. We also have Super Class which wins pupils their class money to spend for their classroom or on a fun activity.
Learning detectives always look for good behaviour for learning. Our curriculum is decided with the children having their say about what they do for their homework.
We are a Christian school. We worship and pray every day and we have prayer and reflection areas. Our local Reverend comes in each week to lead worship and to teach us about the importance of God. We welcome everyone from across the globe regardless of belief or faith.
We have many facilities such as two halls and a sports hall. Pupils have a new and exciting playground with play equipment that we chose. Everyone has access to a wide range of ICT such as IPads and interactive whiteboards.
If you have any questions please contact the Office and ask for an Ambassador to assist you.
We all strive to be the best that we can be and we hope you choose to join us.
