Welcome to Great Binfields Primary Website. I hope you find the information contained here useful, whether you are a pupil having a peek at what other classes have been doing, a prospective parent deciding whether to send your child here, or an existing parent who cannot find the latest newsletter in your child’s bag! This website is updated frequently with latest news and information, calendar dates as well as a gallery of children’s displays, work and events. On the children’s class pages (and in Latest News again too) you can read reports from visits, see examples of super learning and explore links to recommended websites to support learning at home. Please visit regularly or perhaps set Great Binfields as your home page!
Great Binfields is a popular school in Basingstoke with 420 pupils arranged in 14 classes, making us a 2 form entry primary school. There is a purposeful, calm atmosphere throughout where our children have lots of fun exploring. They are expected to try hard and develop resilience - understanding that making mistakes is a huge part of our learning journey. Our children learn lots of new skills through a rich and wide ranging enquiry based curriculum and they apply these skills in different contexts as well as show great learning behaviours. Our children are supported by a hard-working team of teachers, learning support assistants and other members of the support team. The whole staff share a responsibility of keeping self-esteem high, making learning life at school exciting, fun and enjoyable but also of course having a shared accountability for raising standards. Above all else, we all know that happy children make the best learners!
Our most recent Ofsted Inspection in May 2019 substantiated the school’s self-evaluation that Great Binfields is still a good school. These include pupils' development and well-being, the care, guidance and support of pupils, the curriculum, behaviour of learners, to name but a few!
We have made sure that our website is comprehensive and contains lots of information. We realise that there is nothing better than seeing the school working from first-hand however in current circumstances, we are unable to do so. So in order to try and fully experience the energy and enthusiasm of our school, we invite you to watch our virtual tour to sample the positive, happy, calm and hard-working atmosphere - to virtually see for yourself why Great Binfields is a really good choice for your children.
It is a real privilege to be Headteacher of this wonderful school. I am proud of all the people who contribute in some way to providing high quality education, opportunities and experiences for our children. We hope that the children leave Great Binfields having achieved their very best and look back with really positive and happy memories of the people, events and their time at this school.
