We wish you a very warm welcome to the Birkwood Primary School website and hope that by using the site you will get a picture of our vision, aims and the values we uphold.
Our school is a caring, supportive and family orientated community where we encourage our children to ‘be the best that they can be’. This is achieved within the context of an exciting and relevant curriculum that meets their needs and is underpinned by our School Logo ‘Inspire, Cherish and Achieve Together.’
Our strong and committed Governing Body have made the decision to keep class sizes as small as possible lower down the school in order to ensure high quality support for our youngest children. The entire school has been refurbished over the past 4 years to include the playground and a Trim Train on the large playing field, a purpose built kitchen so that children can cook as part of their learning in Science, Maths and Literacy. A community garden area is soon to be undertaken following successful Big Lottery Grant funding.
We are very proud of our school community; if you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
With best wishes,
Mrs Julie Allen
Year 4 began their Brass Lessons this week with Mr. Ingman. We are hoping for a Year 4 Band as soon as they get to grips with their new instruments. The instrumentalists will be keen to share their developing talents over the coming weeks – keep logging on to see their progress right here.
Our annual ‘Mr. & Mrs. Kingswood’ are displaying their awards in Assembly here. Both of these stars took part in all activities and proved to be fabulous Birkwood Ambassadors during our memorable week.
Our Year 6 children had a fabulous time at Kingswood, Colomendy in North Wales. As you can see here, they had several opportunities to experience some highly exciting and daredevil activities. The staff at Kingswood were amazing and the weather simply put the icing on a wonderful cake. Enjoy the highlights – there were plenty.
Here are the year’s first Superstars.
From Year 6, our star has really proved to be a trooper, managing to work hard despite an injured ankle which meant she had to miss Kingswood.
Then, from Year 1 Whales, this little star has had a great start to the year and has really impressing Miss Jenkins, particularly with her Literacy Work and her superb, friendly attitude.
A wonderful start to the year – well done.
Scientific experiments – to solve a crime, Aeroball, Balance Activities and Frisbee Golf have been enjoyed today at Kingswood. The children have experienced another wonderful day in the glorious sunshine and are busily preparing for the disco. Another superb day and “Epic” has been used by one child to describe his week!
We have enjoyed yet another amazing day; bathed in sunshine at Kingswood Colomendy. Amongst other things we have enjoyed Canoe, Kayak, Balance Beam an enormous 3G swing, Laser Quest, Problem Solving and Archery. We are having a wonderful time and more than one person has expressed a wish to stay! The children have been superb in their behaviour and bravery.

Where do we start? Climbing, Abseil, Mini-Beast Hunting, Den Building, Leap of Faith & Jacob’s Ladder have all been experienced by our wonderful Year 6 children at Kingswood. We are being treated to amazing weather, amazing activities and some hospitality fit for royalty. The children are really loving the experiences on offer – it’s a good job as there are plenty more to come.
What a day we’ve had in Wales. Activities have included the Giant Zip Wire, Kayaking, Abseiling, Den Building (Survival) and Climbing. The children have been fabulous and really strived to challenge themselves. The highlight has to be the ending to the Kayak Session where every ‘Paddler’ fell in to the ice cold water! More updates to follow.
We’ve arrived in Wales and already, we’re having a great time! Following a smooth journey, we made our beds, had a look round the centre and enjoyed Roast Beef for dinner. We then did Bouldering (Climbing), Jacob’s Ladder or an Eco Challenge before enjoying a Night Walk. Everybody has settled really well and we can’t wait for more exciting activities.
