Welcome to Birchwood Primary School

Thank you for your interest in Birchwood Primary School an ‘outstanding school’ (OFSTED 2014/15) and for visiting our school web site.

Birchwood is a thriving and oversubscribed academy school at the heart of our village community. We are founding members of ‘The Community Academy Trust’ – a DFE sponsor and growing academy chain. We have also been designated a 'Teaching School'. At present there are thirteen schools in our Academy and 6 in our 'Northern Hub'. This family of schools include Birchwood, Polesworth, Dordon, Wood End, Chadsmead and Wilnecote. All of our schools have an excellent working relationship, which benefits all.

We are very fortunate to have over 430 energetic and enthusiastic children ‘Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning and thoroughly enjoy school. Their behaviour in and out of lessons is impeccable at all times’ - OFSTED 2014/15. They make our school a wonderful learning community to be part of! Our pupils are always ‘up for a challenge’ and play an active and interested part in school life. They are quite simply a joy to teach, a fact which is commented on often.

We are proud of our committed staff at all levels. They take pride in their school and make a strong impact on the outcomes for our pupils. Our committed teachers, highly praised by OFSTED in inspection reports for their outstanding teaching, are a professional and hard working team, excellently supported by outstanding teaching assistants.

Our school is an exciting place to be a pupil in. We get involved in everything! We enter many sports, singing, poetry and art competitions. The majority of our staff contribute to the wide range of extra-curricular activities we offer. These range from Football, Rugby, Dance, Cheerleading, Gymnastics, Cross country, Eco Council and Gardening, Change makers,  Art Club and Computing club. 
 
We have also made big developments in our enriched curriculum and have recently been awarded our 360 Degree Online safety mark, Science Gold Award, Food For Life Bronze Award and Young Carers Bronze Award.

We welcome visitors to our school and would be delighted to show you around.
