Welcome to Flintham Primary School
We are proud to be a rural primary school who serve the community of Flintham and the surrounding villages. As we are a small school, there is a warm, friendly, family feeling to the school. All the staff and children take care of one another to create a safe and happy environment where everyone is respected and valued and where everyone can develop an appreciation of the cultures and beliefs of others in our school community and beyond. Our grounds are extensive and contain a wildlife pond, adventure trail, climbing frame, all weather area, playing field, vegetable garden and a quiet millennium garden.
Flintham is one of twelve schools who are part of Equals Trust Academy. The school take children from 3 (Early Years) to 11 years old (Year 6). The admission of children is organised through Nottinghamshire County Council to ensure there is a fair and equal process for all children who wish to attend their local school.
It is a great privilege for me to have the opportunity to lead a team of experienced, talented, professional and dedicated staff who aim to create a school in which every pupil will flourish in a caring, happy environment. Our staff really do care for the children and they develop strong and meaningful relationships as well as providing a curriculum that excites, motivated and challenges our children to succeed.
We have high expectations of every one of our children. Our ethos is to ‘Inspire a love of learning’ and to teach children how to be responsible citizens both now and in the future through our Super Six Aims (Be Determined, Be Responsible, Explore, Aspire, Make Good Choices and Show Respect). Teachers harness children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn, making learning stimulating and enjoyable through our exciting and rich curriculum based on the local area, giving them a real reason for learning. We support all children at an individual level, whatever their learning strengths and needs.
We strongly believe in the importance of developing a supportive partnership between home and school. This is essential if children are to achieve their full potential and to grow as individuals. Working together, we can help your child to develop the skills that they will need in later life. We want all of our children to be happy, confident learners and to aim high!
We are at the heart of our community and make excellent us of the local resources through visitors and visits which enrich out curriculum and the children’s understanding. We hope that you will share our ambitions and aspirations for your children.
We hope our website will answer many of your questions but should you have further queries, please telephone, email or visit the school – you will be most welcome to see at first-hand how we work and what we can offer your child. We aim to provide a happy and secure school life for the children at Flintham Primary School.
