We have begun an exciting journey, by opening our new school this year with Reception and Nursery children. We will expand to become a two-form entry primary school, in the beautiful growing Tadpole Garden Village.
William Morris Primary School is a friendly, happy place where children are known and cared for. Teachers and pupils treat each other with respect and kindness which allows children to be challenged and stretched, helping them to persevere and achieve their potential. Our curriculum is creative and enables children to explore in different ways – using hands on experiences and interesting stimuli. We believe in innovative teaching that engages pupils’ interests and inspires a love of learning. Our life skills curriculum will run alongside the national curriculum to ensure children are taught personal development and become confident all rounded citizens.
The new school building is spacious and purpose built, including a large hall, cookery room and library area. All our classrooms are bright and vibrant, installed with new equipment and resources, and have direct access to outdoor learning areas. Our school site also incorporates an attractive field and pond area which will be utilised for learning, PE and sports.
