Welcome to Sunny Bank Primary School
Thank you for taking the time to browse our website. We hope that you find it helpful and that it answers any queries you may have about our school.
At Sunny Bank Primary we have high expectations of our children in both their learning and their conduct. Every child is encouraged to ‘aim high’ to reach their full potential, academically and socially. I am very proud to be the head teacher of such a wonderful school and to have the opportunity of ensuring that each child receives the best possible start to their education.
We aim to provide a supportive and caring environment for all our children built on mutual respect and we place an emphasis on developing positive relationships with parents, carers and the wider community. Visitors to our school often comment on our ‘warm, welcoming and caring ethos.
The school has undergone very successful inspections and most recently in February 2015 Ofsted reported : “This is a good school." Positive attitudes to learning contribute well to improving achievement. Pupils readily quote the school motto ‘Together we aim high’ and believe they can.
Our children play a vital role in contributing to the smooth running of the school in ways which you can find out about through this site.
We have a dedicated, hardworking and experienced staff who provide a safe, calm and caring atmosphere in school and foster a hardworking ethos based on an enjoyment of learning. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum with an emphasis on the basic skills all children need to acquire in order to succeed. Our ‘Learning Challenge Curriculum’ is designed to capture children’s imagination and natural curiosity and motivate a desire to learn about the world in which they live. Children enthusiastically use new technologies as tools for learning in the 21st century.
We continually seek the views of parents, carers and visitors to our school as we acknowledge that a healthy partnership is important for the success of our children. We have a very active Parent Association and encourage parents and carers to be involved in all aspects of school life or to discuss any concerns or issues with us. Please call at any time to make a mutually convenient appointment to see either myself, the deputy or any member of staff – we all value discussing any aspect of your child’s education and general welfare.
Our website can only provide a snap shot of what makes our school unique. The best way for you to appreciate what we can offer your child is to experience our school for yourselves. Therefore, we extend a warm welcome to new families and invite prospective parents and carers to visit us to get a real feel for our warm, welcoming and caring school.
