449140 Birkwood PS – Published Report (October 2014)
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
