Welcome to Firside

Tree planting in our new orchardFirside Junior is a happy and healthy place to learn and the school is known for its positive atmosphere and approach.

Our mission is to help every child do his or her best, so that they may become the best they can be.We want every pupil to be able to realise his, or her, aspirations and help them become positive and active citizens. We cultivate and nurture attitudes of support, respect and care in all our activities and relationships and for all our children. Equally important is learning. We set high standards in everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics.

We believe that education is an experience that all children should enjoy to the full. We therefore offer a broad and balanced curriculum with many opportunities for learning outside the classroom including residential trips.

We are proud of all the fantastic achievements that our pupils make each and every day: each one is celebrated. When you visit our school, you will see from the children’s smiles and the clear enjoyment of learning, what a great school Firside is.

This website with its photos, children’s work, quotes, Twitter and news updates should give you a picture of life at Firside but do please come and see the school at work and discover how your child could thrive here.
