Vision Statement

To raise standards by promoting high quality educational and cultural provision for all pupils, through a broad and balanced curriculum.

To enable all pupils to achieve their potential as independent learners and responsible, co-operative, valued members of our school and the community.

Godinton Primary school was built in 1978 to serve the Godinton Park estate. It has grown over the last 25+ years from the initial 30 pupils to approximately 420 in September 2004. The original school building is open-plan and caters for the younger age range, and also contains the library, hall, offices, medical room and kitchen servery.

The 1998 extension comprises two semi open-plan classrooms, with internal toilet facilities and cloakrooms, and three enclosed classrooms.

Another new addition was completed in December 2002. This comprises 5 classrooms, a staffroom, a computer suite, a boiler house and toilet facilities.

The school enjoys a beautiful site with two playgrounds and extensive fields, with woodland to the rear. An environmental area has been created near to the new extension.

As part of the re-development programme, extensive planting of shrubs and trees has taken place, making our surroundings a very pleasant area in which to work and learn, and encouraging a wide variety of wildlife to visit.



At Godinton Primary School, we aim to provide a happy, secure, stimulating environment in which each individual will be able to develop their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. As well as catering for academic needs, we aim to develop social, moral, spiritual, physical, emotional and aesthetic values to enable each child to become a happy and fulfilled adult. We hope to encourage positive attitudes towards learning, to stimulate an inquiring mind, to aim for higher standards in a supportive yet appropriately challenging situation, where children can feel secure enough to make mistakes and learn from them, knowing that all efforts and achievements will be appropriately rewarded. By being part of the community of Godinton Primary School, we aim to teach the children the fundamentals of good citizenship so that they respect different opinions and values, and are able to show self-control, truthfulness, good manners and a sense of responsibility. We hope very much that they will enjoy and profit from the time they spend in our care and will leave our school with a sense of achievement and inner confidence in their own and others abilities and qualities.


The school provides a broad, wellbalanced curriculum that aims to give all pupils opportunities to learn and develop skills across a wide range of subjects. Children will be set tasks challenging to their own level of ability and understanding in an active and stimulating environment.

Extra-Curricular Activities

These are provided by staff in the school willing to give their time to aid the all-round development of the pupils in their care. Activities may include recorders, board games, football, netball, skipping and country dance, and take place at lunchtime or after school. We do emphasise that children opting to join a club need to be aware of the commitment they are making and that regular attendance is expected.

Special Educational Needs

Children learn at different rates and some may require extra support at some stage in their school life to help them achieve appropriately. Specific needs are identified each year during the Autumn term via an audit process, following guidance from the D.f.E.S. issued in the Code of Practice. The school has a comprehensive policy aimed to help in providing a broad and balanced curriculum for all children, adapting and differentiating teaching styles and work set to allow all children to participate fully in all aspects of the curriculum.
