Key information

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!

  • To ensure continuity and progression in teaching and to encourage the children to think and act both independently and collaboratively.
  • To promote skills which enable children to be effective learners.
  • To develop the children’s moral, spiritual, social, physical, emotional and cultural awareness.
  • To maintain effective relationships within the whole school community.
  • To ensure a welcoming atmosphere for all visitors.
  • To ensure meaningful liaisons with nurseries, playgroups and secondary schools and to promote positive links with the local community.
  • To make children aware of the importance of caring for the environment, through work undertaken in and around the school.
We operate a lively breakfast club, called Breakfast Bunch, from 7.45am with different delicious breakfasts every day and we provide free fruit at breaktime for not only KS1, but also KS2.

We currently have no spaces in any year group within the school but we do operate a waiting list.
