CORSHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL
caring positive stimulating

welcome

This week we break up for half term on Wednesday (3.10pm) - don't forget that it is Wonderful Wednesday so parents and carers are welcome to come into school and join their children in class from 2.30pm.  We hope you all have a lovely break - school opens again on 31st October (Monday 30th is a TD day).

Welcome to Corsham Primary School. Our names are Gina Cooke, Lindsay Fry and Kerry Parker and we are the senior leaders at this outstanding school, one of the country’s first Academies. We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about our school and the children and staff within it. We are particularly proud of the fact that high quality teaching leads to outstanding progress; so many of our children learn faster than their peers nationally.  You can also view our Virtual Tour.

   

 

Because we have always believed that in order for a school to be successful, it must be happy, we have nurtured a strong sense of partnership between the school and the family, and this lies at the heart of the children’s happiness and success. Corsham Primary is a fun place to be, and there is always something happening to enhance an already exciting curriculum. It is not unusual to see the staff and children dressed up as Romans, or perhaps Ancient Greeks. These events bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun for everyone.

 

Unicef Rights Respecting School Award

We are delighted that we have achieved this award twice, the latest being May 2015.  Read more about the award and what we have been doing within the school.

 

Success is something we readily celebrate, both academic and personal. We know this helps the children develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, which in turn encourages them to continue to do their very best. We hold a wide range of events throughout the year where we invite parents into the school to help us celebrate the achievements of all the children. Read more about our wonderful school.

 

We are extremely excited about being the lead school in the Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance (PLTSA) - www.pltsa.co.uk.  The schools, nurseries, businesses and university members in our alliance work collaboratively to improve standards and life experiences for all pupils and adults. Our work involves the following areas: Schools Direct Initial Teacher Training, Continuing Professional Development and Training, Succession Planning and Talent Management, School to School support services, deployment of Specialist Leaders of Education and Research and Development. We enjoy supporting future teachers through running Schools Direct for schools across Wiltshire, Bath, Bristol and South Gloucestershire.  If you would like to apply to become a teacher, please visit our School Direct link or search for Corsham Primary on the UCAS website.

 

We are also proud to be one of the four founding primary schools that formed the Pickwick Academy Trust. Our aim is simple, to work together to improve life chances for all our children. Read more about Pickwick Academy trust.

 

We hope this website is a useful introduction to the school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us or, better still, come and see us at work during a school day. The teachers and children would be very pleased to welcome you.
