Aiming High Learning for Life

Headteacher's Welcome

I feel very privileged to be able to lead Putnoe Primary School in the role of Head Teacher. This is a school in which our value system, inclusive nature and shared community spirit has created a foundation on which children thrive.

The staff team is focused and driven to help children understand how they can improve their skills as well as nurturing their growth as young people. A combination of our warm, friendly ethos and high expectations has enabled the development a wonderfully calm culture. Behaviour is excellent – children feel cared for and supported at every step. I am immensely proud of the entire staff team and the contributions they have all made.

"My child is happy to come to school every day. I am pleased with the way my child is encouraged to be the best version of herself and to try new things."

At Putnoe, we have always taken great pride in our passion for providing the opportunities our children need to prosper, making sure they find out about themselves and explore the numerous cultural avenues that will empower them to find out exactly where their interests lie. We develop these opportunities in truly exceptional facilities that are designed to inspire and encourage children to explore each new step in their learning journey. 

The Arts continue to serve as a wonderful vehicle for this journey, creating powerful and life-enhancing opportunities for creative thinking. They bring pleasure, participation, self-expression and essential skills into our children’s lives.

"We have been impressed with the leadership in the school which ensures that all staff give of their best.  Staff are supportive, approachable and kind."

Keeping the children safe and supporting their learning are our key priorities in school. We are working tirelessly to narrow any gaps that developed during the COVID period. We are also committed to continuing to deliver a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum to inspire and challenge their thinking.

"As a fairly new parent to the school, we could not be more grateful that our son is attending Putnoe. The growth in confidence, happiness and academic development has been huge."

Our website offers a wealth of useful information. It is never a substitute, however, for making direct contact with us or seeing the school in action. If you are a prospective parent, we would be happy to offer you a personalised tour of the school so you can soak up the wonderful atmosphere, experienced daily, by the children.

If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact the school using the enquiry form, by e-mail or directly by phone. We would love to hear from you.

Thank you.

Mr Petch
