Ghyllside Primary School 

Everyone remembers his or her years at Primary School; here at Ghyllside we aim to make sure that those memories are happy ones. Starting school or moving to join a new school is an exciting and sometimes worrying time for parents and children alike. Here at Ghyllside we will ensure as smooth a transition as possible, whether you are joining us in Nursery, Reception or further up the school. 

A child’s primary education is of the greatest importance. The start they get in life is a key to their future success and happiness. At Ghyllside we work in partnership with parents and children to ensure the best possible start in life for all in our care. 

This idea of working together in a partnership is central to our philosophy at Ghyllside. If you or your child is not happy about something, come and see us as soon as you can, not only will we listen but we will do our best to resolve the issue. As in any walk of life, we occasionally make mistakes and are always striving to improve the quality of education we provide. Similarly if something is going well or you have an idea, or something to offer the school, come and talk to us, the door is always open. 

Confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. We will provide a full and challenging school life for your child but never underestimate how important your role is. Support, encouragement, enthusiasm and an interest in what your child is doing in school will all help to foster a positive approach to school from your child.

This school provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children, which is differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. Children may have Special Educational Needs throughout, or at any time during their school career. This policy ensures that curriculum planning and assessment takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by the student.

Teachers take into account in their planning a student’s special educational needs and the provision made therefore enables them to participate effectively in all curriculum and assessment activities, in addition to broader aspects of school life.
