Information about the school

Borough Green Primary School has been the heart of the community for over one hundred years – delivering a highly enjoyable experience-based education to many generations of 4 to 11-year-olds. With 10 classes, 6 in mixed year groups (3 x Years 3 & 4, 3 x Years 5 & 6), the school cares for ~270 students. Steps to School, our on-site nursery, cares for children from 3-months old and supports the school with Breakfast and After School clubs.

As a Foundation School, the Governing Body has greater freedom in running the school – employing all staff, owning our buildings and land, and greater freedom in setting our policies, curriculum, and school year. Our Governing Body is heavily invested in the success of the school.

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. With a child first, pupil second approach, you will lead our dedicated and tenacious staff in supporting children to develop our four key aspirational elements of Belonging, Mastery, Independence, and Generosity

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, creating an environment where everyone is Ready, Respectful, & Safe to learn and to achieve our potential in all areas of the curriculum. We have recently implemented the Cornerstones Curriculum which you will continue to embed throughout all learning activities, across the foundation subjects.

We are immensely proud of our facilities – including our beautiful school building, housing a wonderful library space, a covered heated swimming pool, out-door education settings, and a large meadow. Our exceptional Parent Teacher Association provide significant funding to enrich the educational environment for our children, further instilling a sense of community with a number of well-attended events throughout the year. In 2022 and 2023, the PTA staged 2 successful music festivals to crowds in excess of 500 people. Many of our outdoor education settings have been fully funded by the PTA.
