St Botolph's CE Primary School
St Botolph's CE Primary School

Welcome to our fabulous school

FriendsSt Botolph's Primary School is an aspirational, purposeful school with a very dedicated staff who care about the needs of every child. We offer a stimulating environment which develops each child's academic, physical and social potential. Children shine at St.Botolph’s and have fun. We are a school at the forefront of educational development, but one that retains all that is tried, tested and effective in the education of our children.

Our curriculum builds a community of learners with an excellent attitude to learning in a safe and caring environment. The curriculum is engaging, exciting and relevant to the children at our school and aims to prepare our children for life in modern Britain. Following the Governments lead we have embraced the new curriculum of encouraging our children the follow the British values (click here to read) and have taken every opportunity to surround them with knowledge and understanding of what it means to be British.

Our curriculum is driven by a desire for our children to have a greater knowledge of the world and an awareness of the possibilities open to them in their future lives and careers, hence our vision:

“New day…endless possibilities”

Our aim is to promote aspirational, independent children who are happy, respectful and have self-belief.

We want all children to become creative, active and reflective learners, enabling them to be able to respond positively to the opportunities and challenges of a rapidly changing world and promote a commitment to lifelong learning.

Our 6 Christian values are important to us and are seen as essential in establishing our school ethos:

Community – At St.Botolph’s, we nurture positive relationships within the school and wider community. We work closely in partnership with parents and carers and encourage a close liaison between home and school.

Compassion – We support one another, sharing experiences.

Endurance – We persevere in the face of hardship and never give up.

Creation – We celebrate and enjoy the world in all its diversity.

Trust – Trust lies at the heart of the relationships within our school.

Responsibility – We share a collective responsibility for our world, community and the people in it.

We hope you enjoy this window into your child’s education. If you are a prospective parent, don’t make do with a virtual tour of St Botolph's, come and visit us and see our fabulous school. I am always pleased to show prospective parents around and answer your questions.

There is much to celebrate at our school but we never stand still and are always keen to make further improvements to ensure St Botolph’s is always the very best that it can be.
