Headteacher’s Welcome


Achieving Success Together


Welcome to Bankfoot Primary School. Our website contains a great deal of information on teaching and learning. It represents the hard work of a fantastic team of professionals and parents working together to offer many special opportunities for children and adults to achieve their best. It also shows the work of our fantastic pupils!

We focus on ensuring every child learns well through hard work, self-discipline and ambition. We encourage and expect all members of the community to have the highest expectations of our children and of each other. This enables us to go from strength to strength, achieving success together.

As you can see from our most recent Ofsted report in 2016, we were judged to be an outstanding school. I am pleased to let you know that we have continued to improve. We are not complacent, but continue to work hard to build on past successes. We are supported and challenged in equal measure by a team of governors dedicated to ensuring the school is the best it can be.

We hope you find the information useful. If you would like to come to see for yourself, please call the school office to make an appointment.

If you have any concerns please contact school to speak directly to Mrs Wright, Headteacher; Mrs Irfan, Deputy headteacher or Miss Cox, Assistant headteacher.

September 2017

We are now offering 30 hours free early education for Nursery children.

Are you entitled to 30 hours free early education for your 3-4 year old child?

What is the 30 hours free early education entitlement?

From September 2017 the Government introduced a new early education entitlement which allows working parents to get up to 30 hours of free early education a week during term-time.

At the moment, every 3 and 4 year old child is entitled to 15 hours free early education place during term-time. The new entitlement will allow working parents to claim a further 15 hours of early education.

A child is eligible for the new entitlement the term after their 3rd birthday.

To find out if you are eligible for the extra 15 hours free early education please log on to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
