Welcome to Etchells Primary School

We are a vibrant, happy, welcoming school and provide a stimulating and inclusive environment for learning. 

Etchells has been judged to be a GOOD school with OUTSTANDING Early Years and Leadership & Management by Ofsted in September 2016.

We have an experienced, highly skilled and energetic team who work together to plan exciting and stimulating learning opportunities for our pupils.  The changes that have been put in place over the last couple of years have had such a positive impact on the progress and attainment of our pupils. We work with the children to create our child-initiated curriculum and take pride in responding to the learner's interests and ensure that lessons are challenging, fun and purposeful.  

We have a wonderful school environment, with well-developed areas in the school grounds to maximize the children's opportunities to play.  Our school incorporates a Resource Base for children with specific special educational needs which underpins our overarching philosophy of inclusion and Education for All.  These children are integrated in all the classes through school where appropriate.  We also have a 40 place nursery on site, as well as before and after school provision.

We recognise the importance of parental involvement in a child's education and provide regular communication regarding events, news and children's progress. Please use the website to find out key dates for school, look at your child's class page and read the blogs at the top of the page.  Links to our weekly newsletter can be found at the bottom of this page.  Parents and friends can contribute to the blogs too (all comments will be subject to approval).

If you are considering Etchells for your child please do not hesitate to get in touch.  We will be holding an open morning for prospective parents in November 2018 for September 2019 starters. More details will be made available nearer the time.

Should you wish to have a paper copy of any of the information provided on this website, please contact the office and this can be provided free of charge.
