Our School

Welcome and thank you for visiting Sythwood Primary School’s website.  I hope that you find the information both useful and informative.  If you have any questions or would like to find out more about us please contact us to arrange this.

At Sythwood Primary School, we aim for each child to achieve more than they ever thought was possible.  We believe that every child will leave Sythwood Primary School with more choices available to them than when they started.  We have high expectations of all children and provide them with the challenge, opportunities and support for them to flourish.  We strive to provide children with relevant, purposeful learning opportunities and provide them with new, exciting experiences.

We have a strong, dedicated team, who are passionate about working with children so that they can achieve their very best.  We have a driven senior leadership team, who you will meet daily at the school gates, and who lead the school in an ambitious direction.  We have team leaders across the school who ensure consistency and high expectations across their team.  Every teacher, Learning Support Assistant and member of the admin and premises team, act as role models in order for children to achieve the highest standards.  We also work closely with our successful Children’s Centre, who provide support for families and children from early pregnancy to primary school from across the local community.

Alongside our dedicated staff, are our community of parents and carers who come from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds.  We strive to work closely with parents as we know it is when school and home work together, their children achieve their very best.  We hold many events and sessions throughout the year where parents are invited into school.  Keep a look out on the calendar and newsletter for these events.

We are fortunate at Sythwood to be based on a large area of land with truly excellent facilities.  Each phase is in a separate building with a communal assembly and dining hall.  We have a diverse Copse, where children learn forest skills; an outdoor gym; games area and much more.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Explore to find out more and do please visit us by arranging a tour.
