Headteacher's Welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to Priors Wood Primary School. This website has been designed to keep parents informed and to give newcomers an introduction to our school, staff, governors and children.

Priors Wood Primary School is a friendship school, where everyone is valued and respected. We have a dedicated, enthusiastic and committed team who consistently work hard to give the very best education, both academically and socially, to our children. Our staff will do everything they can to meet the needs of each and every child.

We have high expectations of pupils, both with their work and behaviour, supporting them in any way we can so that they achieve their very best.

We are determined to deliver the highest quality of education for our young people. Whilst I value the importance of English and Maths, a broader understanding of foundation subjects is essential. At Priors Wood we have some fantastic artists, dancers, actors, technologists, musicians and sports people to name just a few. I believe that we should celebrate and promote a broad curriculum to enrich children's lives and develop a love of learning.  We recognise the importance of developing the whole child and preparing them for the wider world.

Parents and carers play a vital role in school life and we value our partnership with them. We all share the responsibility for our children’s education and we look forward to working closely together for their best interests. We encourage parents to become involved in all aspects of school life, so that together, we can promote high standards of learning, behaviour and attitudes to enable every child to reach their full potential in their school life and beyond.

I believe Priors Wood is a school to be proud of at the heart of the community. We wish your child a happy and successful time at our school.

With best wishes,

Mr Alan Bishop
