The original school in Roundhouse Road

Our School

Our school is called Aldermoor Farm Primary School and is located in Stoke Aldermoor in Coventry. We have approximately 300 children, aged 4 to 11 studying at Key Stages 1 and 2. The school is a friendly, welcoming place of learning where we are all encouraged to value each other and to try our best. We think our school is a beacon within our community offering mutual help and support.

The key to our school's success is a good relationship between staff, pupils and the local community, which is based upon mutual trust and respect. Our great strengths lie in our commitment, perseverance and determination. 


However, our school has not always been here. The Aldermoor area had a history of farming before it's current usage. The area comprised of large expanses of fields and hedgerows with an abundance of wildlife. The old school was on Roundhouse Road, originally named because of a house with a conical shaped roof. The house and much of the local industry and farmland was devastated during the Second World War, along with many of Coventry's amenities. After the war locations were sought for the provision of education and the Aldermoor area was identified as one such site. The school was originally built in 1953 as two separate schools, juniors and infants. The two schools were combined in 1993 to form Aldermoor Farm Primary School, named after the original land usage.


In both 2000 and 2002, the school was awarded a School Achievement Award by the DfES in recognition of the substantial improvements made in academic standards. These awards ceased to be given in 2004. If there is anything else that you would like to know about us or if you would like to come along and see how we work – please do not hesitate to phone us or pay us a visit.


Dear Parent/Carer,

Thank you for reading Aldermoor Farm Primary School’s prospectus and on behalf of the children, staff and governors, welcome to our school.  Here at Aldermoor Farm we believe strongly in the importance of parents and school working closely together in partnership for the benefit of all our children.  We all work very hard to create an atmosphere where everyone can feel happy, secure and valued.  Our aim is to provide an education that meets the needs of all our children and we expect high standards in behaviour and learning.  We provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced with an emphasis on literacy, numeracy and I.C.T; in this way each child can develop their skills and extend their knowledge through individual strengths and achievements.

We hope this prospectus will provide you with most of the information you would like to know. Of course, schools are dynamic and as a result are changing all the time but the information in this prospectus is as ‘up to date’ as we can make it.

In October 2004, OfSTED Inspectors visited the school.  They reported that “Achievement is good for all groups of pupils throughout the school…..the school provides very well for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social, cultural and personal development…..the quality of teaching and learning is good…..pupils say that they love coming to school and feel secure in its environment.” We were delighted that the report recognised the achievements, hard work and commitment given by everyone associated with the school and lots of other good things from the report can be found throughout this prospectus as quotes in “blue type”.

Our great strength lies in the commitment and perseverance of all those involved in our school and in their determination to give our children the very best opportunities. In both 2000 and 2002, the school was awarded a School Achievement Award by the DfES in recognition of the substantial improvements made in academic standards. These awards ceased to be given in 2004. If there is anything else that you would like to know about us or if you would like to come along and see how we work – please do not hesitate to phone us or pay us a visit. We look forward to welcoming your children to our school where they will receive a first class education in a happy and caring environment.

Yours sincerely,

Graham Pemberton   


Curriculum Aims

“Achievement is good for all groups of pupils throughout the school”

 At Aldermoor Farm, teachers work co-operatively, planning together to organise a curriculum that will suit the individual needs of the children and satisfying the requirements of the National Curriculum.  We strive to pursue the following aims through our curriculum provision and indeed in all other aspects of school life.

  • To provide every opportunity for all children to reach their full potential.

  • To create a happy, learning environment built upon mutual trust, friendship and tolerance between children and adults.

  • To provide a sense of achievement for all.

  • To develop a curriculum which will be challenging and responsive to the needs of our children.

  • To encourage initiative, perseverance and self-discipline.

  • To foster respect for every individual.

  • To provide equal opportunities for all children including those from different ethnic cultures.

  •  To develop an understanding of the world in which we live.

  • To enhance personal and social development both within the school and by providing extra curricular activities and study support opportunities elsewhere.

All staff regularly attend courses to further their own professional development, to improve subject knowledge and to promote high standards of teaching and learning.  These courses cover a huge range of topics and stretch across all key stages and subjects. 

Support time is also given in school to release teachers to work with colleagues and to share good practice. The curriculum is constantly under review as we evaluate the effectiveness of teaching and learning in our school. 

Following our last inspection in October 2004 we have implemented our Action Plan and addressed all the recommendations made at that time. From September 2002 we launched the "Primary Project" in our school which is part of a pilot programme, for primary schools, contributing to raising standards of attainment in Maths and English. 

Work also continues through the "Excellence in Cities" initiative which, again, addresses issues around overall school improvement through the strands - Gifted and Talented, Learning Mentor and Managing Transitions.  These topics are crucial in ensuring appropriate learning and support for all children during their primary school experience.

We strive to ensure that our children have opportunities to experience Music, Drama and Art.  As well as some curriculum provision, we enlist the services of visiting musicians and artists including those from the Coventry Centre of Performing Arts, who provide sessions within the school day and as part of after school activities.
