Welcome to Northfield Road Primary School.
Welcome to the Northfield Road Primary School website. We hope that it will provide you with useful information, give you a flavour of our school and help you to see what make our school such a special place.
Our mission statement is “Where Believing is Achieving” and everyone in our school is keen to ensure that all our children believe in themselves to enable them to achieve their goals.
As a school we work hard together to achieve and maintain high standards in all that we do. Our team of staff sets and expects a high standard of work and behaviour from each child. We work together to promote a positive attitude to work and learning; in our school. Our pupils are encouraged to do their very best in all aspects of school life and we value and encourage good manners, effort and success. We foster a happy, caring, calm yet vibrant atmosphere where children want to learn and are keen to come to school each day. This stimulating climate provides opportunities for each child to believe in themselves, develop friendships and succeed as an individual by learning independence and respect for others.
The three elements of partnership between children, parents and school are central to our philosophy and vision for our school. We believe strongly that the education of all children lies in this partnership and that close co-operation between home and school is essential for each child to feel secure, gain confidence and meet with success in later life. There are regular opportunities for parents to come in to school: working alongside children, watching performances, assemblies and discussing their progress in learning. We believe family is at the heart of the school and encourage you to communicate with us if you need to. Please make an appointment at the office to meet with your child's class teacher. If a problem occurs, phase leaders and senior leaders will also be informed and a meeting may be arranged, if appropriate.
If you are a parent with a question or query for us or another member of the public, who would like to find out more about Northfield Road Primary School, or you would like your child to come to our school, please ring 01384 818710 and speak to one of our office staff who will be happy to help you.
We look forward to a long, happy and successful partnership with you and your family in your child’s education. We are proud of our school and aim to continue its commitment to excellence.
