Bitterne Park Primary School


Gerida Montague

As an outstanding community school we provide children with the skills that they need to flourish. We focus on strong academic skills balanced with a strong understanding of the needs of the whole child. We place our child at the centre of everything we do and we constantly ‘aim for outstanding’ in every area.

Bitterne Park Primary is a school for boys and girls aged 3 – 11 years. Where the whole staff community focus on improving outcomes for all children in the widest possible sense.

Ofsted say: “Senior leaders provide outstanding, inspirational leadership and set extremely high expectations. They check rigorously to ensure these are met by all staff. As a result, teaching is outstanding and pupils make rapid progress.”

There are three mixed ability classes in each year group and children are taught English and Maths in sets. We have developed a skills based curriculum in order to excite and engage the children in their learning.  We are committed to enriching the curriculum - theme days and weeks are a feature of school life, as are visits by theatre groups and professional artists and musicians. We regularly visit places of interest both within and outside the local area. The children have wide access to music, with music throughout the school. We offer an ensemble, drumming academy, music tech mix club and choir for all to join. The school believes in offering a wide range of extra- curricular clubs, led by specialists and school staff.

Our children are happy learners, Ofsted say: “The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils are very enthusiastic about their school and say that the teachers make learning fun.”

We have a large and friendly high performing staff team and we are committed to ongoing staff development. We are linked to a National Support School, our Executive Headteacher is a National Leader of Education and our staff regularly support other schools. She also works as a supporting Headteacher and Ofsted Inspector and is well supported by a strong staff including a Head of School.
