Pyrford Church of England Primary School is a happy and successful school, which offers a broad-based education to children of all abilities within the primary age range. The school has good facilities and benefits from extensive play space, games’ field, an environmental garden, a Mediterranean Garden and a swimming pool. Classrooms are organised into a Key Stage 1 and a Key Stage 2 block. They are well equipped and each class has a computer in addition to the computer suites and a number of interactive whiteboards.There are seven year groups, which each have two parallel classes. A total of fourteen classes of thirty children brings the total roll number to 420 children aged 4-11 years.High expectations are made of the children both in terms of their behaviour and their academic work. Throughout the school children are encouraged to be polite, caring and thoughtful young people. The school is multi-cultural and children are taught to respect and to appreciate the beliefs and cultures of other people.Children achieve well at the school and this is reflected in formal assessments, including Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATs, as well as in other aspects of their learning. Pupils are supported where they have Special Educational Needs and there are targeted groups throughout the school to meet a range of needs. There are opportunities for children to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities, which are organised by staff and parents. There is an active parents’ association, which organises both social activities and fund-raising throughout the year. The school benefits greatly from these additional funds, which have provided valuable resources for the children.Pyrford Church of England School enjoys strong links with the parish and the local community. The clergy visit the school weekly and the whole school goes to the church at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and at the end of the academic year. The school takes an active part in local events including the Pyrford Flower Show.Staff are encouraged to develop their own knowledge and expertise through ongoing INSET and opportunities to work with colleagues. They meet regularly with each other and the Headteacher. Inset Days provide an opportunity for staff to work closely together on a range of whole school issues. Staff regularly attend courses provided by both Surrey County Council and the Diocese of Guildford.There is a high level of commitment among the staff and a genuine sense of team membership. We hope that you will be interested in being part of that team and can share with us what you have to offer for the benefit of the children our care.
