Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to our school website! I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Banks Road Primary School. We pride ourselves on providing a happy, safe, secure and supportive learning environment where all children can achieve their highest potential. We work hard to foster a climate where all children, regardless of race, gender or disability feel secure and can grow in confidence and self esteem.
We have a kind, caring and dedicated team that nurture, motivate and encourage our children to be the best they can be. Our Banks Road’s Values: Respect, Friendship, Determination, Trust and Positivity underpin all that we do.
We believe that the partnership between school and home is an important part of a child’s development and we have an open door policy where parents are encouraged to come into school to talk about their child’s progress and development whenever they feel it is necessary. We know that children are happiest when home and school work together for their benefit and many opportunities will arise for you to be involved during your child’s time with us.
I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need. It will grow over time as we add more information. If you have suggestions to make about its content and design please contact me via the school office.
