Farnham Primary School

Welcome to Farnham Primary School

Through Faith and Nurture we Thrive

Life in all its fullness - John 10:10

 

Farnham is a unique and incredibly special village primary school.  Our small class sizes ensure that pupils get the attention they need to thrive academically and socially.  Our adult to pupil ratio means that we know each and every child incredibly well and understand what motivates and how they learn best.  It's often said that Farnham feels like a big family and we certainly embrace that.  We are a nurturing community of children, teachers and families and we welcome your visit to our school.

 

We have a strong sporting legacy and our teams excel at sport, our small school status benefits us here.  Everyone has a go and everyone has the chance to succeed. 

Music and drama are also incredibly important to us.  Each year we have a Christmas, Easter and Summer performance that could rival the West End stage! In recent years, we've performed The Jungle Book, Bugsy Malone and Cinderella.

 

Farnham Primary School is part of The Federation of Farnham and Rickling Primary schools, which means that we often partner with Rickling in sporting, music and drama events. 

We have an active Forest School and our instructor Mrs Greenwood runs sessions for pre-school through to year 6.  We use an area of the Forest in Farnham, which allows us to connect with our local natural world.  

 

We strongly encourage you to come visit.  We offer individual tours for parents that are interested in their child attending Farnham Primary School.  Please do get in touch on admin@farnham.essex.sch.uk or 01279771339

Farnham Primary School

A small school with big ideas and where every child matters.    Autumn 2023

We are busy making exciting plans for our exciting new curriculum that we will be launching in September.  Building on what we already do, we are adapting our curriculum so that we have more outdoor learning that really focuses on life skills, with children having opportunities to look after animals (initially chickens, rabbits and our school puppy).  Through the development of the school’s allotment area and plans to install a greenhouse, children will be growing vegetables and using them for lunches and cooking activities (along with the eggs from our chickens).  To deliver the curriculum outside, we are currently exploring and sourcing resources that will be needed.

  

  

We are further enhancing our provision by zoning areas in the school building.  A few plans include introducing a new Design and Technology/Art Zone and turning our current sensory room into a wellbeing area.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          We want to ensure our classroom learning environment suits the needs of all children and we are exploring different learning spaces – such as having areas where children can work standing up or having cushions on the floor for children to sit and work on.  We know that not all children find it easy to sit at a table all the time to learn.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    We plan to change our uniform for September so that children are always appropriately dressed for outdoor and active learning (including for our Forest School provision).  We would like to move to children wearing a school sweatshirt with either jogging bottoms or leggings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           If your child loves learning outside, book a bespoke meeting with Tracey Bratley, our Executive Headteacher to find out more about our plans and to see firsthand, how special our little village school is.
