Sharrow Primary School is located just off London Road and serves the Sharrow area. A walk along London Road will give you a flavour of the cultural and racial diversity of the community. The school serves an economically diverse area with housing ranging from large stone fronted Victorian houses to smaller terraced properties, many of which are privately rented and social housing provided close to the school. The school has a commitment to equality of opportunity for all learners and operates a vigorous inclusion policy.
All of the above contribute to creating a dynamic and diverse school community. We attach a lot of importance to developing children’s creative and expressive skills. We encourage children to develop their sporting abilities. We take part in many inter-school events and get involved in various sporting initiatives. Staff are encouraged to develop their own creative and sporting interests and wherever possible share these is school to enrich the children’s experiences.
We are committed to ensuring that all our children make good academic progress to ensure their future economic and social well-being. As part of this process, we encourage parents/carers to get involved with their child’s learning and we work closely with parents/carers to help develop their own skills so they are able to support their children.
In September 2006 we moved into a purpose built new school building, with provision for children under the age of 3 years incorporated. We now cater for children from 3 months to 11 years and we provide learning opportunities for older children out of school hours. This building has been designed and built to ensure that we are better able to meet the needs of the children and their families and enable us to develop our school approach to delivering a creative and exciting curriculum.
