We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family from all of the staff at Inkberrow First School.
At Inkberrow First School we aspire for all our children to become confident, secure, caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a love of learning.
The School is a Voluntary Controlled School for pupils aged 4-9 years, situated in the village of Inkberrow, which is east of Worcester on the A422 Worcester to Stratford Road. Catchment areas include Inkberrow, Stock Green, Morton Underhill, Holberrow Green and Cookhill.
The School building is spacious and well maintained, with five bright, well resourced classrooms. Each room has an interactive Whiteboard and access to laptops to support the children’s learning. We are extremely fortunate with our extensive school grounds which offer a variety of different environments for the children to explore. This allows us to extend their learning, taking it outside the classroom, making full use of our Forest School provision.
The school is well supported by our Parents, Governors and Friends of Inkberrow First School. Parents and visitors to the school often comment on the friendliness and wonderful warm welcome they receive. Becoming involved in the School really is like joining a big family. We hold weekly Celebration Assemblies, regular coffee mornings and have introduced a Stay and Play coffee and cake afternoon. These are just a few of the many ways in which the school invites visitors in on a regular basis to share in the children’s successes.
Pupils receive excellent teaching from experienced and enthusiastic staff. The curriculum is both exciting and engaging and provides opportunities for the children to apply the skills they have learnt in Literacy and Maths. We believe in a balanced approach to the curriculum with equal emphasis on the basic skills and creativity. The children learn through a thematic approach which incorporates all areas of the curriculum. However, Maths and Literacy are still delivered in discrete daily lessons.
Inkberrow First School is a Partnership School with Goodnews School in Ndola, Zambia. Several members of staff have taken part in an excellent exchange programme and we are looking forward to continuing this valuable link. The children share their traditional stories and culture and learn about the Zambian way of life.
We run several after school clubs from multi sports, netball and golf to engineering, mad science, gardening and board games. There are also lots of opportunities for our pupils to learn musical instruments such as violin and drums.
THE SCHOOL ETHOS
We aim to provide every pupil with the highest quality educational experience appropriate to his or her age, aptitude and ability. Through this we expect our pupils to achieve the highest standards of which they are individually capable.
In pursuit of these aims we will ensure that there are equal opportunities for all members of the School community and that every aspect of life in School enhances the self-esteem of individuals and encourages mutual respect and empathy for each other.
Parents, Governors, Pupils and Staff worked together to produce a school motto that reflects our aims and school ethos. We chose ‘Love to learn, learn to care’ and this motto is displayed throughout the school and underpins all our school policies.
At Inkberrow First School, we aim to provide a positive learning experience for every child. We are proud that our pupils learn in a safe, caring and stimulating environment where everyone is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.
- To promote a love of learning.
- To respect each other, our local and global community.
- To create a positive atmosphere which promotes high standards.
- To be proud of our achievements and those of others.
