About Us

Our school motto is – “Always be the best that you can be”

Our school aims are –

  • To develop a self-confident, well mannered community where children and adults value themselves and respect the difference in others.

  • To provide a happy, friendly, caring environment where children and adults can develop their full potential.

  • To put the learning process at the heart of the school enabling children to become creative, independent learners with the skills and attitudes needed to meet the challenges of adult life.

  • To recognise and develop children’s individual needs to foster a love of learning in all.

  • To become a valued part of our local community and help children become responsible, caring and happy citizens.

  • To develop a culture of open self evaluation to ensure the best learning opportunities for the children.

Our vision for Birchgrove Primary School is that it becomes a community of excellence where all are entitled and encouraged to :-

  • Become productive citizens within a school community that learns together and develops spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially, culturally and healthily.

  • Achieve their full potential through a truly inclusive, safe, happy learning environment which values attainment and achievement in equal measures.

  • Love, accept, trust and respect others, promote sustainable development and receive the basic skills and knowledge to become resilient lifelong learners.

  • Participate in a broad, balanced, relevant curriculum through providing structured learning experiences which focus on the needs of the individual taking into account emerging technologies.

  • Continually reflect and evaluate our progress within a culture of trust, honesty and openness, so that the quality of teaching and learning within our school continues to improve.

Our school prayer is –

This is our school, let peace dwell here,
Let the rooms be full of contentment,
Let love abide here, Love of one another,
Love of mankind, Love of life itself
And love of God,
Let us remember that as many hands build a house,
So many hearts make a school.
