Welcome to Unicorn Primary School
Everyone at Unicorn is committed to ensuring that every child within our school thrives both academically and socially. Visitors regularly comment on the vibrant, inclusive and happy environment in which our children flourish.
We aim to foster in our children a love of learning that we hope will remain with them throughout their lives. We strive to achieve this by providing a stimulating learning environment in which children are excited to learn and are given the confidence to achieve their potential.
Our team of hard working and conscientious staff all work together to ensure that each child within our care is given every support to be the best that they can be. We carefully plan a curriculum that is exciting, memorable and ignites children's curiosity to find out more. Educational days, residential trips and visitors to the school are an essential part of our children’s experience during their time with us.
Our purpose for our children within our family of schools is as follows:
Happy, Safe & Secure - we will ensure that all children are nurtured and learn within an environment where they feel happy, safe and secure. We will actively build trust and collaboration between all members of our school communities and across the Trust as a whole
Inspirational Curriculum - our curriculum will be broad, balanced and enable deep, purposeful learning to take place through exciting, memorable and joyous experiences that enables children to meet the world and contribute to it.
High Academic and Wider Outcomes - we will never put a ceiling on learning and constantly look for opportunities for all pupils to excel, enabling all pupils to thrive and celebrate their achievements.
Next Steps Ready - we will work collaboratively with all parties to ensure that children are ready for the next steps in their education and in their lives.
We develop strong bonds between home and school from the start, beginning with home visits and pre-school visits when children join us in reception. Parents are actively encouraged to be closely involved in their child’s education. When conditions allow, we hold regular open evenings, class assemblies and parent focus groups covering a wide range of topics. Staff, including senior leaders, make themselves available to welcome children and parents/carers on the playground each day.
As part of Compass Academy Trust, Unicorn Primary School benefits from working closely within a family of four local primary schools and has the opportunity to collaborate and share good practice whilst still retaining our individual identity and ethos.
We would be delighted to welcome you to our school. Please contact the school office (the details can be found on the “Contact Us” page) with any queries you may have or to make an appointment to visit us to experience our exciting, vibrant and happy environment.
