Welcome to Brierley Hill Primary School.  I hope that by exploring this website you will learn more about the life and work of our school.


Many children begin their school life by joining us after their third birthday in our Foundation Stage unit which has part time places for children until they reach school age. These are community places open to children who will move into our own school or to other schools.


Prior to entering both nursery and school, information sessions are organised where staff and parents have the opportunity to meet each other. These sessions are followed by a programme for children to visit either nursery or school which we hope will help them to settle in more easily.


We hope that during your child’s time at nursery or school, you, as parents will become involved in your child’s education. Should you have any concerns about your child, the class teacher or I will always be willing to discuss these with you.  However, as before school is a busy time for staff we ask that where possible a prior appointment is made.


Our school has a warm, vibrant atmosphere where purposeful learning takes place.  The teaching and support staff are enthusiastic, hard working and caring.  We aim to provide quality education for your child.  We hope that you will work in partnership with us towards this.


If you would like to find out more about the school.  I would be pleased to see you at a mutually convenient time and show you around school and nursery.


Yours Sincerely.


S. Cameron


Our School and Nursery

Brierley Hill Primary School is a group 2 primary school, under the control of Dudley Local Authority.


The school comprises of two buildings dating back to the early part of the twentieth century, which have been refurbished to provide bright and cheerful surroundings.


The school has a nursery unit which is part of the Foundation Stage.  There are 30 part time nursery places.  Our nursery session lasts for three hours.  Children progress into the Reception class which remains part of the Foundation Stage.  Both nursery and reception children share the same facilities in our Foundation stage building.  Children are admitted to the nursery unit as soon as possible after their third birthday.  Priority admissions criteria may be applied. 

These are …

a)  Family Needs

                          b)  Referrals from outside agencies.

                          c)  Four Year Olds or children new to the area.


Together with the full range of school subjects we believe very strongly that all children can be successful. 

We want parents to be supportive of school and whatever goes on in it.  Parent workshops, information sessions and training courses, (some of which lead to qualifications) are on offer throughout the year.  Together we can encourage children to be responsive and interested learners.


To use the Curriculum in a way which is flexible, relevant and meaningful to

all children at their different stages, responding to their needs and interests.


To recognise and encourage positive talent of all kinds.


To extend the intellectual, creative, social and moral capacity of individuals.


To give high priority to Personal and Social Education by:

Stimulating intellectual curiosity and reflection.

Encouraging clear thinking and discrimination.

Fostering the capacity to tackle a problem.

Developing an awareness of the needs of others by making

appropriate choices.                 .

Develop the skills to become successful learners.


Keep our delivery of the National Curriculum under constant and critical review.


Develop an awareness of and respect for other people regardless of personal differences.

Develop an awareness of global and local issues, helping children to have respect for and an interest in their environment.


To ensure that the schools aims and achievements are effectively monitored.                           

To constantly work towards raising standards.


To work in partnership with parents, children and the community.


The Education Committee agrees with the school governors how many places will be available each year for children who will be 5 years old.


Places are allocated in the Spring Term for children who will reach their fifth birthday during the next academic year (September - August).


Children who are five before the end of February half term will start school in the September prior to their birthday. Children with birthdays March to August will start school in the January prior to their fifth birthday.


Parents meetings will be held in the term prior to the children starting school where the aims of the school will be shared and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.  Information given will guide you through how you can work with the school to help your child to be successful in his/her learning.  Children will also spend time finding out about what they will be doing in the Reception class – children already attending nursery sessions will be well acquainted with the building and with the staff.


Whilst in the Reception class, children’s progress is monitored and their Foundation Stage Profile is completed.
