Welcome from the Headteacher
I am very pleased to welcome you to Phoenix Primary School. This website has been put together to give you a picture of what our school has to offer you and your child. It is such a pleasure to have been instrumental in leading such a team of talented staff to our latest ‘Outstanding’ ofsted grade. This has come from much dedication from both adults and children and I look forward to the continuous strive to providing a platinum and world class education for every child.
At Phoenix Primary School, we want to create a learning environment that is exciting, challenging, safe and happy. We want to unlock the potential of every child to help them to achieve both in their learning, and as they grow into young people. We pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming school. If you have not already visited, please do come and see the children at work. Our classrooms are filled with books, resources and creative displays to promote high quality learning to support children in their lessons.
We recognise the importance of developing all the abilities of the children, and offer many opportunities for them to take part in additional activities. Teachers and staff aim to support children through a broad and balanced curriculum that targets basic skills as well as depth of knowledge and understanding across a wide range of themes and contexts. Lessons are planned to be interactive and engaging to promote children’s independent learning skills as well as working cohesively and collaboratively.
Our school strives hard to promote an ethos of community, mutual respect, pride, creativity and ambition. This aims to develop open-minded, flexible and resilient individuals with the skills and attitudes to be successful in modern Britain.
I look forward to welcoming you to Phoenix Primary School.
Mr Simon Assig
