About Our School
Primrose Hill was opened in September 2007 in a brand new building. It has grown rapidly and is now a busy two-form entry school. This expansion has enabled us to develop a brand new Nursery unit and some new classrooms. Despite increased numbers all children are known individually and we aim for all children to reach their full potential and have a happy and successful time at Primrose Hil.
We have created a happy, caring school with equal opportunities for all, a school where every individual is highly valued, where care and concern for others is central to our work. We provide a safe and caring learning environment designed to assess and meet the individual needs of all children and provide the skills necessary to be lifelong learners and good citizens in an ever-changing world.
The Aims of the School
We aim to build on the foundations laid in earlier years so that children in our care receive an education which will help them grow into confident and caring adults. It is therefore essential that we enable each and every child within our school to realise his or her full potential in all areas of life. A new Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Assistant Headteacher started working at Primrose Hill in September 2017. Together with an invigorated Senior Leadership Team and Governing Board they are focused on raising rates of progress and standards of attainment.
School Performance (Including Unvalidated 2018 Data)
In 2017 we saw the number of children leaving our Reception classes with a Good Level of Development rise. We also saw a 5% increase in the number of Year 6 pupils reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths and a 10% increase in the number of children at the end of Key Stage 2 who reached the expected standard in reading. In addition to this we saw increases in the number of Year 6 pupils attaining higher level of attainment in reading, writing, maths and GPS and a 16% increase in the number of children leaving Key Stage One at the expected standard in Maths.
