Welcome To Sharrow School
Welcome to Sharrow School’s Website. We hope you find the website helpful and informative. We also hope that if you are visiting the site for the first time that it gives you a feel for the school that we are very proud of.

Sharrow School is very inclusive, welcoming children and families from a wide range of backgrounds. We currently have 38 different languages spoken by children, families and staff in school. Celebrating difference and learning to live together is a very important part of our ethos.
We visited Jurassic Park. In Forest School we dug out dinosaur footprints and made skeletons out of sticks. Some children made dinosaur food for them to eat. We drew, painted and made dinosaurs and fossils out of clay, soap and cotton buds. We found dinosaur footprints and dinosaur teeth and made a big skeleton of a dinosaur.
We recently had a very positive inspection from Ofsted on 6th February 2018.

SNOW – OUR SCHOOL STAYED OPEN!
We had great fun. We made snow statues, snow people, snow animals. We had snowball fights and went sledging. We made igloos and ice sculptures. We had a wonderful time.
Chinese New Year 2018
We watched a film about Chinese New Year, getting ready for it and the Lion dance. We listened to Chinese music and made our own red envelopes. We did lots of different activities across school to celebrate.
