We encourage our children to become independent and to strive to achieve their full potential. This quality leads to greater self-motivation and self-discipline. The children are provided with many opportunities to make good relationships with other children and adults, both in the school and in the community. We support all of our children to be responsible and take the lead in different areas of school life. All children in year 6 are given a responsibility to support them in developing their leadership skills.
Children enjoy their education at Syresham School through the varied and exciting curriculum that the staff provide. As a result they are hard-working and enthusiastic about their learning.
Our school is a happy place to work and play; with children, parents and staff working closely together for the best of the pupils in our care. Our caring family environment ensures pupil well-being is at the forefront of all that we do. Pupils and parents view the school as a safe place to be, with any concerns addressed in a timely and appropriate manner.
School begins at 8:50am with registration and lessons beginning promptly after that. Morning break is at 10:00 to 10:15 am. Lunch starts at 12 noon. Afternoon school starts with registration at 1:00pm with time for whole school mindfulness. We have a break in the afternoon from 2:00 to 2:15pm with school finishing at 3:30pm. We have clubs running most days until 4.30.
We run a Breakfast club every morning from 8am to 8:40am and an afterschool club from 3:30 to 6pm Monday to Thursday. The school is therefore open from 8am to 6pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 3:30pm on Friday, a total of 47.5 hours per week.
Children may begin their education in our Nursery from the age of 2 years, through their foundation years, then on to Key Stage One and Key Stage Two, leaving at the end of year 6 at age 11 years.
