Creating opportunities for everyone

Chris Johnson

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.

    • Reading for Pleasure

      Reading for Pleasure

      Every child deserves to leave primary school being able to securely read; a vital part of this is getting children to enjoy reading. We have an excellent, well-resourced school library which our children visit every week and this is also open to parents.

      Safeguarding Children

      Looking after the welfare and safety of your children, both online and in the 'real world' is of paramount important at Phoenix School. Our Welfare & Safeguarding team meet regularly to discuss all children we have concerns about and what support the school can provide.

    • Teaching Children to Read

      Teaching Children to Read

      When your child is learning to read, there are two crucial things to learn: what sounds are represented by written letters and how to blend these sounds together to make words. At Phoenix School we use a programme called 'Read, Write Inc.' to teach this.
