Steam Mills Primary is a Local Authority maintained primary school for pupils aged 4 - 11 years old and our intake (PAN) is 17 in Reception. We follow the National Curriculum and have developed a bespoke curriculum, based on our key drivers of Aspiration, Communication and Knowledge about the World. We have four classes with mixed year groups as well as pre-school provision.
We are judged as a 'Good' school by Ofsted. We work with other schools and organisations, ensuring that we draw on and share excellent practice. Our staff are highly trained, very experienced and work very hard for the benefit of children and families. We pride ourselves on providing a calm, safe, fun learning environment for everyone.
Whilst we maintain a delightful atmosphere in our historic, Victorian building, we also have modern intervention rooms and resource areas. We are 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!
