Welcome to Bishopstone CE Primary
On behalf of the children, staff, and governors, I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our website. As you explore, I hope you will get a sense of the warm, caring, inclusive ethos we have at Bishopstone and see the exciting learning opportunities and enriching experiences our children absorb here so you can begin to understand what makes Bishopstone the wonderful place that it is.
I’m sure that all headteachers feel exactly the same about their schools, but I know that Bishopstone Church of England Primary School is a very special place. I am delighted that you are interested in finding out a little more about us.
We are a small school, situated at the foot of the Ridgeway, positioned next to the duckpond in the heart of Bishopstone village. We are part of a small community which has an interesting historical and geographical background. The school itself is surrounded by natural countryside, which is a source of enrichment for many curriculum activities throughout the year.
The school is a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School for children from 4 to 11 years, with a strong link to our local church, St Mary's in Bishopstone village, although all children are welcome and religious education is non-denominational.
Our philosophy and ethos reflect our Christian values and we have well behaved, motivated and confident children who think of others and are keen to learn. Christian values form the basis for all relationships and teaching in the school.
We know and respect all of our children, treating them as unique individuals. We provide a positive environment for learning, opening up horizons of hope and aspirations for them. We want our children to leave Bishopstone Primary School equipped with the self-esteem, resilience, empathy, kindness, and ambition to succeed as lifelong learners and members of the wider world.
If you have any queries, or would like to come for a visit please do not hesitate to get in touch.
