Dear Visitors,


On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I’d like to welcome you to Ethelbert Road Primary School Website.

I am incredibly proud and privileged to be the Head Teacher of Ethelbert Road Primary School. We are a school which believes in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. As such we want all those who become part of our school family, whether a child or an adult, to feel valued, happy, respected and to recognise their role in continuing to make our school a special place.

We believe that all children who become pupils at our school deserve the absolute best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their potential in every area of school life. We are fully committed to working with parents to give children the very best start in their education. We have high expectations of everyone in our community ensuring we effectively work together to support our children with their personal development and learning. We want our school to be a place where learning is irresistible.

At Ethelbert Road Primary school we aim for high standards and outstanding achievement in a creative and fun environment. We encourage children to be successful learners, confident, resilient individuals and responsible citizens and therefore emphasise the importance of respect, good manners, pride in our work and a sense of responsibility amongst our children. We aim for our inspirational, creative curriculum to provide memorable and meaningful learning experiences.

Within our school we work very hard to create a team of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that will support each child in reaching their potential. Many who visit us comment on the strength of our ‘staff team’ and their shared commitment to help every child in the school have high levels of self-esteem and achieve their best. We all try and encourage the children to have a desire to do their absolute ‘best.’ 

We hope that during your visit to our website you will gain a sense of the value that we place in each child and our desire to ensure standards, in all areas, remain as high as possible within the caring and happy community which is Ethelbert Road Primary School. If you are a prospective parent we hope that you will come and visit the school personally. Please phone the school office to arrange an appointment. We look forward to welcoming you to Ethelbert Road Primary School.


For all enquiries we can be contacted via e-mail or by telephone on 01795 533124


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Yours sincerely,


Miss Samantha Fenn


Head Teacher
