Our school website aims to provide a taste of what our school is about. However, nothing can match a visit, so please, if you haven’t done so already, contact the school to find out about our tour dates.

What impresses me most whenever I walk around Abbeymead is the mutual respect that exists between adults and children, and the commitment to and enjoyment of learning. I am extremely proud of all my staff. They all have one aim in mind, whether they work in the classrooms or office, on the playground or in the kitchen, and that is the well-being and further development of our pupils.

Society today provides our children with a range of challenges and opportunities that are entirely different to those that many of us encountered when we were young. Our overriding aim is to ensure that our pupils are ‘Ready for Life.’ This means our children leaving the school not only with strong curriculum skills (particularly in English and Maths), but also able to organise themselves and interact effectively with others and recognise the importance of self-awareness, compassion and personal happiness. In-class programmes such as ‘Successful Learners’ and ‘Positive Attitudes to Learning’ are designed to teach our pupils about how to learn effectively. The ABC (Awareness, Balance and Compassion) programme guides pupils in developing an ethical and reflective approach to life, prompting a better understanding of themselves and how to manage relationships with others.

My staff will continue to work hard in ensuring that we realise our potential as a school. Effective parent partnership is central to our current and ongoing success. I look forward to the prospect of working with you to fulfil your child’s individual potential as part of our community.


With best wishes
