“Pupils love school and are very proud to be there. They feel very safe and happy in the stability and support the school provides for them. They quickly develop into confident young people.” Ofsted March 2016.

Bankwood Community Primary School is a good school and has now entered into a soft federation with Carfield Primary School.

Both schools will be working together to provide a rich and exciting curriculum for our children. Staff will benefit from sharing expertise across the two sites.

The school admits children from the age of 2 years into our happy and inspiring Foundation Stage. This gives the very best start to education at Bankwood School.

Bankwood is a lively, friendly school where teaching is joyfully received by engaged and well-motivated children. The school  represents for our children a safe haven, a place of learning and security. We know that success is achievable for everyone who learns and works at our school.

Set in wonderful grounds, enhanced by a Forest School, we pride ourselves on our creative, stimulating environment which encourages high standards of teaching and learning.

I hope you will find that our website answers all your questions. However, should you require further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
