Shenton Primary School

Empowering and nurturing young minds to achieve excellence

New Parents


Welcome to Shenton Primary School. We are very proud of our school community. Our children have family from all over the world, speak many different languages and follow different religions. Our school curriculum is designed to celebrate diversity as well as similarity, this helps the children to develop a high level of respect as we learn about each other. We hope you find the information you are looking for on this website, and welcome school visits from new families. School staff speak different languages so please contact us if you have any questions.

Our school has improved significantly over the last 5 years and is continuing to achieve high standards. This is because we work together as a team, the children, you as parents, and us as school staff. Your child is unique, they have their own personality, subjects they enjoy more, subjects or elements that they are new to. We aim to help your child find out what they really enjoy learning through the experience of learning in different ways.

As the parent, you know your child best, and we use the information you give us to help make sure your child achieves their potential. Our home-school agreement begins by establishing our basic partnership, but we know that each family, each child is different. If you have any questions or concerns, we are here to help so please come in and talk to us.

We ask you to help your child at home if you can, this is particularly important when your child is learning something they have to remember e.g. spellings, times tables. There is information and videos on this website to help you if you need it.

At school, we teach your child what they need to learn, if they are more able we challenge them, if they are learning to speak English we teach them in a way that helps them catch up, if your child has special educational needs or a disability we ensure we adapt so that your child has full access to all learning opportunities. Helping your child to achieve their best is our goal.

We also run classes for parents. These include learning English for adults, basic computing skills, and Zumba classes! These can vary so please ask at the office for details of current classes and/or start dates.

If for any reason your family faces a crisis, we want to make you aware that we may be able to help. We can offer advice and support on financial matters, housing and/or any other social or domestic problems. Please talk to us for more details.

Our school prospectus will give you basic information about the school day, school uniform and other daily routines. More details can be found in our school policies. Term dates for this academic year can be found here. If you would like to contact us please do, details are at the bottom of this page.
