We warmly welcome you to Baldwins Gate Primary School and do hope you find our website both informative and helpful.
As a Church school the Christian ethos is very important to us all. We seek to achieve high academic standards within a happy, caring and stimulating environment in which children enjoy learning and are encouraged to do their best. We are committed to a partnership in education between home and school to achieve the best for your child.
We are proud of our school and the high standards of behaviour and learning which our children achieve. This is due to a caring and conscientious staff team with high expectations.
We hope that your child's learning journey at Baldwins Gate will be happy, fulfilling and memorable.
Baldwins Gate CE (VC) Primary School was opened in l969 when the Church Schools at Butterton, Chapel Chorlton and Whitmore were amalgamated. The school caters for children between the ages of three and eleven and is set in attractive grounds, which include two hard playing areas, an Early Years area and an extensive playing field. Part of the playing field has been converted into a ‘Learning and Growing Garden’. The School is on one storey and has disabled access at main entrances/exits.
The School emphasises its Church of England foundation and maintains the traditional values and practices of a village school, while employing the best modern educational practice and development in accordance with the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. The teaching is a mixture of individual tuition, group teaching and class work so that the children may progress at a speed which suits their needs.
Ofsted Inspection March 2017
The school underwent an OFSTED inspection on Tuesday 21st March and we are extremely pleased and proud to be able to report to you that the school has been assessed as continuing to be “Good”. The Inspector recognised that we are an inclusive school community with a strong set of values and we are pleased that our caring ethos is so visible.
This is recognition of a team effort and commitment by our whole school community and we would like to thank you for your contribution to making our school the very special place that it is. We are only too aware of the important role our parents play in supporting our pupils and value our partnership with you.
We now look forward to taking on board the recommendations from the report to continue our journey and build on this success.
