More than just exceptional teaching

Our strong academic results are achieved by inspiring teaching which makes subjects come alive. Our teachers are passionate about their subjects and about the successes of each individual. Your child will explore new subjects in imaginative ways including role play, specialist projects, trips, educational visits and use of online educational games as well as more traditional methods.

St Aidan's School follows a broad, balanced curriculum which reflects the National Curriculum at Key Stage 1 & 2. Standards are high and all our pupils are given a firm academic grounding which will support their move into Senior School. We are always looking for ways to bring lessons to life, whether it is by organising a visit from a Japanese linguist or by turning classrooms back a hundred years, dressing in costume and exploring life in Victorian or Roman times.

Throughout all subjects there is a continued emphasis on extending core communication skills, literacy skills and numeracy skills. We use first rate teaching resources such as interactive white boards and our small class sizes ensure that your child will also receive a generous amount of individual attention. We will encourage your pride and joy to develop his/her own passion for learning and creativity and to achieve more than you would have dreamt to be possible.

Our Community

At St Aidan's Primary School, we attach great importance to developing strong links between the school and local, regional and national communities.

Within our curriculum, within Citizenship education, through assemblies, performing arts and special events, we involve our pupils and their parents in the local community, so that they learn how to participate in a practical way in the life and concerns of their neighbourhood and communities.

Working with parents, local residents, the business community, public services, and voluntary services teaches the children the importance of local communities.

I have been involved with the PTA for over 10 years. I am the current chair person, I am extremely lucky to have such a dedicated and enthusiastic team working alongside me. We all enjoy organising events that not only raise money for school, but create a real social and family atmosphere
