Honeybourne First School is situated in a rural village, approximately six miles east of Evesham in the County of Worcestershire.
The building originally dates from the early nineteenth century, with a new classroom, disabled facilites and internal modifications added in the early 1990s.
In 1994 a portable classroom was installed due to growing numbers.
The school has a large playing field and play area, and a tarmac area for both summer and winter use.
A conservation area including two ponds and a chequerboard garden have also been added. Other outdoor facilities include a playstructure, a willow sculpture and a pen for small animals.
A new courtyard development was finished this year.
There are currently 98 children, aged 4-10 years at the school. They are organised in 5 classes.
The Governors of HONEYBOURNE FIRST SCHOOL have agreed the following policy.
* Honeybourne First School will offer places to children in the September FOLLOWING their fourth birthday.
* For children whose birthdays fall between September and January, these will be full time places. The children whose birthdays fall between January and August will initially attend mornings only.
* During an induction period of approximately half a term, the part time sessions will gradually be lengthened, after consultation between the Class One teacher and parents.
* Where full time places are deemed unsuitable for particular children, they may remain as part time until it is agreed that they are ready to stay full time.
We give the children regular opportunities to visit the school before they become full time. We hope to make the transition from nursery, playgroup or home as smooth as possible and this is greatly helped by having good liaison with the local Honeybee Nursery.
In the September following their 10th birthday, children move to Middle School. The vast majority of our pupils go to Blackminster Middle School.
* By law, children are not required to attend school until the term following their 5th birthday.
* Worcester Local Education Authority entitles children to full time education at the beginning of the term in which they become 5 (September 1, January 1, May 1)
