Dear Parents and Carers,
From the pupils, staff and governors, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the Fishburn Primary School website. We are a smaller than average primary school situated in the heart of Fishburn village in County Durham.
We are proud of our school’s welcoming, community atmosphere and the way we nurture the achievements of each and every child. We value highly academic learning but we also know how important it is that children receive a broad and balanced education. We aim for all of our children to grow in confidence, develop a sense of responsibility and achieve their own personal goals.
We enjoy a spacious site where children have plenty of space to explore and learn. We have light and spacious classrooms and first-class play facilities: a playing field, which the children can use at break times and lunch times (weather dependent), two playgrounds, an allotment, bird hide, fire pit and an outdoor classroom. We are constantly looking at ways in which we can further develop our already extensive and impressive grounds.
Our staff are committed to providing the best possible education to every child in our care. We pride ourselves on being inclusive and have the ability to cater for any one who wishes to be part of our ‘Fishburn Family’.
This website is designed as a point of information for current parents and carers, and prospective parents and carers alike. For our pupils, it is a resource to be used with class information and links for home learning should the need arise. We pride ourselves on our open door policy and so, to that end, our website is not a resource of in-depth information but a guide as to what can be provided and where to obtain further information.
Parents and Carers can also find details of school activities under ‘Parents’ Information’ on our website, including weekly newsletters. Our Faceboook page is also updated on a daily basis and will give you a sense of what is happening in our lovely school.
If you are a parent or carer considering sending your child to our school, I encourage you to explore this site and to get in touch with school so that you can see what Fishburn has to offer your child – we will be delighted to arrange a visit!
Miss Ferguson (Acting Headteacher)
