Head teacher's Introduction
Quinton Primary School is a village school about six miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. It has grown in size since September 2010 and, as a result of extensions to the existing building in the summer of 2014, is now single form entry with in excess of 220 children on roll.
Our successful Ofsted in 2017 has confirmed an improvement in standards as the school goes from strength to strength. We have a school where our key priority is happy children who we want to look back on their school days as the best days of their lives.
If you want to know more or are moving into the area, please contact the school and come and see what we stand for. We also work closely with Quinton Cygnets who are based opposite the school and who offer wrap around and out of hours care for the children.
Quinton Primary School currently caters for children from the ages of 3 to 11 years with an exceptional Foundation Stage classroom for Reception and Nursery children.
The school is set in pleasant grounds with a large playing field and ample playground facilities for the children with a separate play area for pupils in the Foundation Stage. The school is well equipped with resources to support your child’s learning. Every year group has its own computer equipment including an interactive whiteboard. There are twenty laptops for the children to work with and these are readily available for each class. We have a large hall which is used for PE, assemblies and other curricular and extra-curricular school functions. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which meets the legal requirements and caters for the widely differing needs of all our children. The school is founded on positive relationships between teachers, children and parents/carers. We aim to provide a welcoming, caring and happy atmosphere in which all of our children are valued and work to achieve their full potential in all aspects of school life.
In 2010, the school had 71 children on roll, with a limit of 105. Since then we have gone from strength to strength and now have 210 children on roll with numbers set to continue to rise over the next couple of years. With a recent increase in our official PAN (Pupil Admission Number), we will soon grow to our maximum of 210. As of September 2014, there were no longer any split age group classes.
Teaching assistants are trained in specific intervention strategies and are regularly moved around, depending on where support may be needed, in order to maximise the impact on the children’s learning.
We believe that we are:
- An achieving school
- A learning school
- An inclusive school
- A forward thinking school
- A developing school
We believe in:
- Setting high expectations and making children feel secure and confident
- Building on what the children already know
- Structuring the curriculum to make it enjoyable, challenging and stimulating
- Letting children assess their own progress, set their own goals and reflect on their learning
