Welcome to Yohden Primary School’s website which we hope you find informative. To keep up to date with future events, please read the information on our calendar and /or follow us on our Facebook page.
At our school we want our children to be happy, resilient and develop a thirst for learning. This is at the heart of our school. We believe that learning is a personal, rigorous and continuous process where connections are made and strengthened so that we gain more knowledge, improve our skills and deepen our understanding. By developing our personal goals, purposeful thinking, experience, enquiry and enjoyment we are prepared for our future careers and life’s challenges.
We are proud to offer an interesting curriculum in all subject areas, making as many cross-curricular links as possible. We use the International Primary Curriculum to plan themed topics, where learning is connected to and builds upon previous learning and achievement.
Developing the whole child is a very important part of our ethos and as such, we develop personal goals explicitly through our whole school themes and implicitly through the curriculum. Children’s progress in developing personally is celebrated each week therefore supporting our children in becoming both excellent learners and responsible members of society.
We follow a curriculum which promotes international mindedness. We believe that children will be better equipped for life beyond school if they are more globally aware.
We have an outstanding staff team who are passionate about the learning and well- being of children in their care. Our vision statement and ethos have been developed by the whole school community and as such children have a say in what goes on in our school.
In our most recent Ofsted report, we were graded as good with outstanding features. Since then we have continued to build upon this to develop our school further.
We believe that all children can succeed. We have a strong inclusion team to support children and families including those with SEND.
We welcome you to our school. Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
Mrs A Smith (Head Teacher)
