Queenswood Primary School

About our School

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Queenswood Primary School and Nursery.

We want our children to think big, think confidently, and leave our school with learning habits and attitudes that will ensure they can succeed wherever they go next. We want the children here at Queenswood to enjoy their learning and to have developed curious minds. We want our children to be safe and happy and to have made good friends. But most of all, we want the children to leave here being the best they can be, ready to face whatever new challenges the future holds for them.

There is a saying: 'Life's a journey not a destination'. Whilst this website will give you some idea of what Queenswood is all about, it is no substitute for a visit. If you are interested in taking a journey with us then please don't hesitate to spend some time browsing through this website, or feel free to contact us and visit the school. We would be very pleased to meet you and your child.

Our school has a very effective communication platform connected to parents, it is called Dojo. On Dojo you will be regularly updated about what is going on in school. For parents who have English as an additional language Dojo is able to translate the messages so you don't miss out.

Full details of all school policies can be obtained from our school administrator upon request.

Why we teach what we teach(our curriculum)

The Staff and Governors of Queenswood Primary School and Nursery believe that each child must have equal access to a rich, broad, balanced, and differentiated curriculum. The curriculum must be well matched to pupils’ ages, abilities, interests, aptitudes and individual needs so as to ensure that it is inclusive of all children.  The curriculum needs to ensure pupils consistently achieve highly, particularly the significant proportion of disadvantaged pupils attending our school. Therefore our ambitious curriculum is designed to help pupils know more and remember more , and provide them with the cultural capital (the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said, and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity.)

We carefully plan our curriculum to build a sequence of increasingly deep knowledge as our pupils progress through school.

We teach the different subjects trough the following topics:
