Mount Pleasant Primary School

Headteacher's Welcome

In our school we aim to create an inclusive, happy, stimulating learning environment, which allows equal opportunities for all, where our children will achieve their potential; intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. 

We provide a structured approach to learning, following the guidelines set by the National Curriculum yet leaving room for personal development and creativity. Our learning programmes are designed to give our children a rich variety of enjoyable experiences through which their skills, abilities and attitudes can grow. 

In the long term our aim is for our children to become well-balanced, resilient, thinking adults, able to face the future confidently and independently. 

In educating a child we have to look at the whole person. We know that children learn best when they are secure and happy. How a child feels about him/herself is fundamental to their success in learning. Therefore, our aims encompass not only intellectual skills like reading, writing and mathematics but life skills like self-confidence and initiative, perseverance and co-operation. 

We usually look forward to showing new or prospective parents around school. At this moment in time this is not possible. We are very proud of the variety of experiences that are on offer to our children and some of these activities can be seen under 'Our School'. 

Please feel free to phone school to talk to me or one of my senior team.
