Welcome to Banister Primary School – “Leadership and management is Good, behaviour and safety is Outstanding, quality of teaching is Good, achievement of pupils is Good, early years provision is Good” – Ofsted November 2018.
We are delighted to welcome you and your child to Banister Primary School and our fantastic new building! We are a “learning centred school” with learning at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on our children’s motivation and enthusiasm to learn through the interactive and engaging topics and activities that we offer.
We believe that every child is an individual and we encourage each one to develop self-confidence, pride, inquiry, tolerance and positivity with the support and encouragement of our outstanding teachers.
Our excellent staff are all committed to ensuring that each child is valued, cared for and given every opportunity to achieve their potential. We believe that every child is an individual and we encourage each one to develop self-confidence, pride, inquiry, tolerance and positivity with the support and encouragement of our outstanding teachers.
We also believe that children learn best when families are involved and invite you to take part in family learning and to continue in your learning journey.
We hope that you will take advantage of the opportunities to visit and get involved in the many different aspects of school life.
Everyone who visits our school comments how wonderful the atmosphere is; people comment on the real buzz of learning, the impeccable behaviour and the general courteous and friendly nature of all they meet – Staff and children!
Banister prides itself on its family ethos: together we achieve much more.
If you haven’t already visited us please come and see the school in action, we would be delighted to show you around.
If there is anything further you wish to know please do not hesitate to get in touch.
