Headteacher’s Welcome

Preparing children for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow is something we only get the chance to do once, whether as teachers or as parents.

By the time children leave us, many of the things that make them who they are – their beliefs, values, and sense of self – will already be forming. It’s an enormous shared responsibility, and one that has particular significance within the special context of a primary school. The question then is how best to prepare children for the chang- ing world they will come to shape. At Slimbridge Primary School, we believe the answer lies in knowing, valuing, and challenging every individual, stretching and supporting them in equal measure.

Slimbridge is unashamedly ambitious when it comes to delivering every child a first rate education, but we know academic results alone are not everything. To truly succeed, students need more than just knowledge…They will need the confidence and resilience to embrace new challenges, they will need an open mind that is global in its outlook, and they will need the emotional maturity and moral grounding to be a force for good in the communities they will go on to serve.

We are incredibly proud of our children and what they achieve. Indeed, alongside our academic philosophy, comprehensive learning support, and fantastic curriculum, it is the wonderful children and their families that make Slimbridge such a truly special place to learn.
