Welcome to Corsham Primary School. My name is Fiona Allen and I am the Executive Head Teacher of this outstanding school, one of the country’s first Academies. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about our school and the children and staff within it. We are particularly proud of the fact that high quality teaching leads to outstanding progress; so many of our children learn faster than their peers nationally. You can also view our Virtual Tour.
Because I’ve always believed that in order for a school to be successful, it must be happy, we have nurtured a strong sense of partnership between the school and the family, and this lies at the heart of the children’s happiness and success. Corsham Primary is a fun place to be, and there is always something happening to enhance an already exciting curriculum. It is not unusual to see the staff and children dressed up as Romans, or perhaps World War 2 refugees. These events bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun for everyone.
Admissions Info: If you have applied for a Reception place and been refused but would like to add your child to our waiting list, please telephone the school office and us know. (You are not automatically added to our waiting list.)
Unicef Rights Respecting School Award
Over the course of this year the school has been working towards the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA). We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the award (May 2015). Read more about the award and what we have been doing within the school.
Success is something we readily celebrate, both academic and personal. We know this helps the children develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, which in turn encourages them to continue to do their very best. We hold a wide range of events throughout the year where we invite parents into the school to help us celebrate the achievements of all the children. Read more about our wonderful school.
We are extremely excited about being the lead school in the Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance (PLTSA) - www.pltsa.co.uk. The schools, nurseries, businesses and university members in our alliance work collaboratively to improve standards and life experiences for all pupils and adults. Our work involves the 'big six' areas of Schools Direct Initial Teacher Training, Continuing Professional Development and Training, Succession Planning and Talent Management, School to School support services, deployment of Specialist Leaders of Education and Research and Development. We are looking forward to supporting more future teachers through running Schools Direct for schools across Wiltshire, Bath, Bristol and South Gloucestershire. If you would like to apply to become a teacher, please visit our School Direct link or search for Corsham Primary on the UCAS website.
We hope this website is a useful introduction to the school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us or, better still, come and see us at work during a school day. The teachers, children and I will be very pleased to welcome you.
