Steam Mills Primary is a co-educational maintained primary school for pupils aged 4 - 11 years old and our intake (PAN) is 17 in Reception. We follow the National Curriculum and use the Phonics Bugs literacy programme. We have four classes with mixed year groups, but we do not mix Key Stages. We feel our class structure is to children’s advantage because it allows mixed abilities to flourish.
Whilst we maintain a delightful atmosphere in our historic, Victorian building, we have had a recent building programme creating modern intervention rooms and resource areas. We are also surrounded by some of the most outstanding countryside on the planet! We take full advantage of our environment, with Forest School and numerous hunts for bugs, flora and fauna and even bears and dinosaurs!
