"REACH for the stars and beyond. Together, with God's love, we can dream, believe and achieve."

Welcome to our school's website

“Pupils thrive at Battyeford Primary School. They are happy and safe. There is a strong sense of community. Staff have high expectations of pupils’ attitudes and behaviour”.  These are the words taken from our most recent Ofsted inspection, and they perfectly encapsulate the ethos and values we promote here in school.  At Battyeford, we understand that education is a journey, not a destination, and our focus is on providing a learning environment which supports our children through every stage of their personal journeys.  We understand that every child is different, has different needs and aspirations, and our child-centric approach ensures that children achieve and become the very best versions of themselves.

Our philosophy is underpinned by our school REACH vision.  This vision defines the gifts we seek to enrich our children with every day:

  • Responsible
  • Empathetic
  • Aspirational
  • Confident
  • Happy

And our vision statement “Reach for the stars and beyond.  Together with God’s love, we can dream, believe and achieve” seeks to re-enforce these values and our strong links to the Church.   Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of everything we do, providing opportunities for all children to access learning and develop academically, socially and emotionally.  We are proud of all our children, and of the reputation we have as a wonderful learning environment within our community.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and I encourage everyone to explore the site to gain valuable insight into our world and see the rich tapestry of activities and experiences that make up Battyeford Primary School.

Rachel Batty, Headteacher
