About Us and Prospectus
Longwell Green Primary School is situated in a semi-rural area between Bath and Bristol. The school has fourteen classes and can accept up to 420 pupils. These classes are formed with a mix of age, gender, ability and friendship groups. They are also divided up into ‘Zones’ – Air, Fire, Earth and Water.
There is a strong emphasis on working collaboratively within the school. The current staff have a range of teaching experience ranging from newly qualified colleagues through to those with 30+ years in the classroom.
The school seeks to prepare children for living in the 21st century, including developing their understanding of sustainability, healthy living and globalisation, as well as equipping them with life skills essential for their future success.
We are heavily involved in developing international links. In recent years the school has established partnerships with schools in France, Spain and Kenya. French is taught as a second language from Reception and we often have foreign language assistants attached to the school.
The school has close links with many local partners including Bath Spa University and a local cluster of schools including including Redfield Edge, Courtney, Cadbury Heath and New Horizons. The school has superb facilities, with modern ICT equipment set alongside an extensive and rich outdoor environment. The children are highly motivated, the parents supportive and the links with the wider community excellent.
