Information about the school

Borough Green Primary School is a Foundation School which means that the school’s Governing Body has greater powers than in community primary schools. For example, the governors employ all school staff, they own the school site, can set certain school policies and have the power to determine the timing of the school year. Consequently, our governors are fully invested in the schoolcaters for children from 4 to 11 years of age with Steps to School, our on-site nursery and pre-school, providing childcare from 3 months and an after school club for our school age children.

Our school has a century’s history of success and is at the heart of the local community. We provide a highly enjoyable experience-based education for children aged 4 to 11 years. We aim for academic excellence but we also recognise the importance of every child’s personal development. Our school ethos is warm, welcoming and inclusive with a very strong family atmosphere that provides a great sense of belonging. Our strong team of staff does all it can to ensure that our children make the most of their innate abilities and potential.

Fundamental to our success is the quality, commitment and teamwork of everyone involved with our school. Whatever their role, our staff are fully committed to supporting our children’s success.

Children need to be: physically and mentally healthy, able to take decisions and deal with any challenges. To achieve this they will require: a range of skills, courage, adaptability and determination. Each child is at the centre of this “Circle of Courage”, which has four elements: Belonging, Mastery, Independence and Generosity.
