Hello and welcome to Abbey Primary School!
Our school is a happy and exciting place where children work hard and have lots of fun.The teachers all work hard and we help them make school even better. Each class elects two school councillors who represent us on the School Council. The School Council put forward our suggestions to Mrs Wakefield. They are also responsible for organising all of the charity fundraising that goes on in our school.
Each year we can apply for jobs such as the Head Teacher's Personal Assistant, librarians, office helpers and ICT technicians to name but a few. We also have Play Leaders who make sure no one is left out at playtimes and lunchtimes and a team of Health and Safety Officers who help Mrs Wakefield make sure our school is a safe place to be. We also have a team of class ambassadors who welcome visitors to their classroom.
Our school curriculum is one of the most exciting things about our school. We get to learn new facts and develop our skill levels across a range of subjects, every year building on what we already know. This allows each and everyone of us to excel at what we are good at, be the best we can be and recognise and celebrate the strengths of other people.We get to go on many exciting educational visits and our residential programme is amazing!
We also have an exciting House System. When children join our school they are allocated to one of our four houses - Earth, Wind, Fire or Water. All houses are vertically grouped across the school and led by a House Leader from the Senior Leadership Team. Each house elects a House Captain and Vice House Captain from Year 6. Through the year we collect house points for good work, good attendance and inter-house competitions. At the end of the year the house with the most points wins our huge House Trophy!
After school fun and exciting clubs happen! We have a wide choice of PE activities like rugby, football, basketball, sports fitness and dance as well as music, science and art clubs.
Friends of Abbey (mums, dads and grandparents that want to help) organise fun events for us like discos and fairs.
Abbey Primary School is a 'Caring, Sharing, Achieving School' and we hope you enjoy your visit.
