Head's Welcome

As the new Interim Headteacher of Yenton Primary school I am pleased and proud to welcome you to our school. Our school sits right at the heart of the Erdington community, a community which we are proud to serve.

Yenton is an inclusive school that looks to educate the leaders for tomorrow. We embrace a growth mindset and believe that every child has the potential to achieve. We pride ourselves on working to ensure that your child makes the start in life that all children deserve.

All parents want their children to be safe, happy and well-educated and these are three key goals for us as well. We have worked hard to maintain the friendly, warm atmosphere that makes this school such an enjoyable and creative place to learn, whilst ensuring that standards continue to rise.

For the last three years, children have left this school with attainment that equals or exceeds national expectations in reading, writing and maths. More importantly, the progress that children make during their time here has been consistently good.

As well as those core subjects, we enjoy a wide, rich and balanced curriculum delivered through our broad and creative curriculum. Success in Art, PE, Science, Computing and Music are all encouraged, developed and celebrated, as are children's out-of-school interests. We have a varied programme of visiting speakers, out of school visits and a residential trip in y6 to futher enhance our rich and varied curriculum.

We as a school understand the ever-changing needs and demands of our education system and we look to prepare our pupils to thrive in the future. The teaching team here are far from complacent as we look to embrace new and exciting educational initiatives. With a dedicated team of teachers and teaching assistants, fantastic parental support and, of course, our lively and enthusiastic children we will continue striving to improve our school for our children.

Please read the website and the twitter feed carefully, as we provide a lot of information to parents on our website and this will give you a flavour of the fun and caring of the school. Alternatively, feel free to contact us, or come for a look around our friendly and vibrant school.
