On behalf of the children, staff and governors, may I take this opportunity to welcome you to Boxgrove Primary School.
We hope that you will find our information both useful and informative.
If you have not already visited Boxgrove, we hope that you will do so in the near future. We hold Open Days in October and December each year for entry to school the following September.
Mr Paul Bull
AIMS AND VALUES
Our aim across the Boxgrove team is to provide an outstanding, progressive community primary school, developing rounded global citizens. Working with the Governing Body, the teaching team and parents, these words have been carefully chosen to define the direction for the school in the coming years. Our values represent the beliefs through which we want the school to operate. We provide a stimulating environment in which to learn; we set a high value on the happiness of our children; we aim to be inclusive. We act in partnership, with parents, with pupils and with the local community.
ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Boxgrove is an Academy co-educational school for children aged 4 - 11 years old and is situated on the east side of Guildford (between Burpham and Merrow). We are currently going through an expansion programme which will take us from a two form entry to a three form entry school. Our current Published Admittance Number (PAN) for Early Years, Years 1, 2 and 3 is 90. Years 4, 5 and 6 currently have a PAN of 60. By 2016 we will have three forms in all year groups.
At Boxgrove we adhere to the principle that "Every Child Matters" and that all children have the right to enjoy and achieve to the best of their ability in a safe, happy and secure learning environment. This encourages them to grow as global citizens and as members of the whole school community of 540 children plus staff. We believe that a strong partnership with parents encourages children to reach their full potential.
We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures to the left and around our website and that you gain a feel for our school and its grounds.
