in 1839. It is set in grounds comprising a large playground,
grassed areas and gardens to the rear. The
gardens contain wildlife areas and a pond to
enhance the children’s study. The school’s recently
established “Green Team” (comprising of pupils,
staff and parents) have worked extremely hard to
enhance these areas further.
school is a primary school catering for children from
4-11 years of age. We are a small school which

same times believe that music, art and physical education
are of equal importance in the development
of each child.

We are extremely fortunate to have been awarded
a grant to provide a state-of-the art foundation
stage setting. This, coupled with our reception
teacher being recognized as a “Leading
Foundation Stage Teacher” provides an excellent
start for the children at Adlington Primary School.
Activities covering a wide range of learning opportunities
are planned around the six areas of learning,
taking into account the children’s interests,
learning needs and ability. Within this framework,
continuous play is used both indoor and outdoor
to enhance the children’s learning. In this well
planned environment, children can learn through
play to explore their ideas and experiences in new
and imaginative ways.
With the use of a range of positive behaviour management
strategies are used to create the right classroom
ethos; where children feel safe, are motivated,
their contributions are valued and they will achieve
their full potential as independent learners.

and Key Stage 2, children follow the National
Curriculum in all subjects. Statutory guidance is
