Our vision for the children at Birklands Primary School is for every child, regardless of their starting point, to have the opportunity to achieve. We provide an engaging curriculum that sparks imagination, promotes independent learning, and supports children to be the best they can be whilst developing a sense of how to be a responsible citizen. Our children are happy and confident learners who face new challenges with enthusiasm. They take pride in our school values: ‘Work Hard, Be kind’.

We believe learning should be active, stimulating and engaging, and will ensure that any barriers to learning are overcome.
In April 2014 we became an academy and joined the Nova Education Trust (formerly the Torch Academy Gateway Trust), allowing us to benefit from the support and guidance being part of a multi-academy trust provides.
Since 2011 the trust has been working with Meden School — as a result Meden is one of the 10 most-improved schools in the country.
By being part of the trust, Birklands Primary School has access to a whole range of services that can help support and develop every aspect of work in the school.
“All of the staff who work at Birklands Primary School share the school’s vision to make their school and the people in it ‘the best that they can be.’ The trust’s motto ‘work hard, be kind’ is embodied by everyone connected with this school. Knowing every child and their family, having strong community links, an aspirational curriculum and providing amazing learning opportunities sits at the heart of Birklands. Everyone connected with Birklands Primary School knows that they are valued, respected and have many opportunities to reach their full potential.”Celia Smith BEd (Hons)Executive Head Teacher
