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 Rev’d Shaun leads weekly worship. Prayer and worship are integral parts of the school day. Our children enjoy opportunities for discussing faith and quiet reflection.
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.
