About our school
Naunton Park is a two form entry primary school located in Leckhampton, Cheltenham. We very much view ourselves as a big school with a family school feel. I began as Headteacher in September 2022 and it has been a privilege to get to know our children, the team and the school community so that we can work together to create a school where our children achieve great things in a great way. High quality education for all is paramount and the aim is for Naunton Park Primary School is to be a beacon of excellence at the heart of its community.
Our school has a tradition of providing a lively, vibrant, stimulating and inclusive education. It is our aim to give every child the best education possible, through excellent teaching based on the needs of the individual child within a carefully planned creative and broad curriculum. We work very hard to provide a happy, caring and secure environment in which children can succeed and enjoy their primary years.
We are very keen that through their learning and experiences, children gain not only knowledge and understanding, but also the skills, self-discipline, confidence and motivation that will enable them to become successful and enthusiastic learners. Great emphasis is also placed on helping children to develop personal and social skills that will enable them to become valued and responsible members of the school and local communities. Strong relationships and well being underpins everything we do so that our children feel happy, safe and have a sense of belonging.
In January 2023 we launched our new Naunton Park CHALLENGE Curriculum which you can find more information on our Curriculum pages. Both broad and balanced, the school advocates that “Reading” is the beating heart of the curriculum and the gateway to the whole school curriculum. It is designed to help children know more and remember more, where design is centred upon key concepts which allow children to make connections between larger ideas as they move throughout their education. Our children will experience a wide range of opportunities from termly Forest School lessons, exciting educational experiences to our new OPAL play sessions and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
Naunton Park’s CHALLENGE Curriculum aims to provide our children with a great education, to develop a love of learning and the capacity to make a difference in their lives. At our core is a belief in gaining depth of knowledge, in work that is challenging: both experiential and enquiry led and producing quality work. Our curriculum is not just about what we put in but is also concerned with what we draw out, encouraging children to think deeply about complex issues and worldwide learning.
We encourage all prospective parents to visit our school where you will receive guided tour from our team.
