‘Everyone is a learner and every experience is a learning opportunity’
Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website – Welcome!
From the moment I looked around the school, prior to the start of my role here in April 2016, I fell in love with our school; should you come and have a look around for yourself, we think you will too.
At Flakefleet, we are strongly committed to helping our children grow and develop the skills that they will need to be successful in life. We take great pride in the broad and exciting curriculum we offer our children and the range of support they receive in order to thrive. As importantly as the core academic skills our children learn, we want everyone to be happy within school, feel safe and confident to take on the challenges they will face as they grow older. Resilience, aspirations and the willingness and ability to take risks, believe in oneself and learn from mistakes are qualities that we believe are essential and we commit a lot of time and effort into helping our children and staff be the best versions of themselves.
Innovation is important to us, we like to challenge existing expectations and practices within education and make them the best for our children. Staff are quick and keen to embrace change, we have a strong team who want to change lives and make a difference. We have a highly dedicated and committed nurture team who are in place to support children and families pastorally, there’s very little they won’t do for the best of our children. We invest heavily in the professional development of staff with a particular focus on Leadership and Management coaching for performance and the development of Teaching and Learning – we are proud of the rapid progress we have made in recent years.
Our building and resources are second to none and rarely found in a primary school. We have our own Art and Music rooms, Dance Studio, children’s kitchen, a wild life area and even our own radio station amongst many others. Our use of technology is widely recognised as being amongst the best in the country, with regular visitors to school coming to learn from what we do. From Year 2, every child has their own iPad, we make frequent use of green screen technology and we have much more exciting equipment, including our very own drone.
Our school enjoys close links with parents and the community and we have a strong reputation within it. Numbers have increased rapidly in the last year and we are quickly becoming full in many year groups. Results are improving with forecasts for even better assessment results in 2017/18.
If you have any interest in our school, in any capacity, please come and see for yourself the wonderful things that go on at Flakefleet Primary. We’re sure you will pick up on the happy atmosphere, the excellent behaviour, fab resources and exciting curriculum being delivered. Exciting times lie ahead for our school, there is a real buzz around the school and the community about what we do - come and be part of the adventure!
