The staff, governors, children and parents at Garlinge Primary School and Nursery are very proud of our successful school. We have served our local community since the 1930's and in June 2014 Garlinge was judged to be a 'Good School with Outstanding Behaviour and Leadership and Management (Ofsted June 2014).'
We provide our children with a variety of learning opportunities that are challenging and exciting, creating a joy and a thirst for knowledge in each individual child.
At Garlinge we celebrate diversity and respect all children regardless of ability, gender, ethnicity or religion. Ofsted found that we provide a 'calm atmosphere where pupils work hard and take pride in their achievements. Pupils are respectful and always demonstrate courteous behaviour. The quality of teaching is consistently good with examples of outstanding practice; this enables pupils to make good progress in all parts of the school enabling children to achieve success.'
Garlinge pupils experience a wide and varied curriculum and are offered many opportunities through extra-curricular activities and clubs to enrich further their time at our school. Every child experiences a free annual school visit to enhance their learning and understanding of the curriculum.
We are committed to working in partnership with parents and welcome you to take advantage of the many informal and formal occasions to enhance home school relationships.
Prospective parents are invited to look around our inclusive school. The office staff will be only too pleased to arrange an appointment alongside our open days.
With best wishes,
Mr J Williams
