Creating opportunities for everyone

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, a very warm welcome to our school website. At Phoenix Community Primary School, we pride ourselves on being a community school where every child matters and parents and carers are welcomed in to the school and recognised as crucial to their child’s success and happiness.  It is a real privilege working with the children, staff, families and community and we are committed to giving pupils the very best start in life and providing opportunities and experiences that makes their time at school fun, rewarding and successful.

I hope you find this website informative and useful; it is designed to give you a taste of the vibrant and exciting nature of our school, the high-quality work of our pupils and the excellent education we deliver. Please do not hesitate to contact us or, better still, come and visit the school for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you in person.

Chris Johnson, Headteacher
