Here at Old Town School everyone works together as a team to ensure we have a strong learning community. In fact, we like to think of our school as a big family where everyone involved with the school has an important part to play in supporting and encouraging each other.
We at Old Town firmly believe in this, our Mission Statement:
"They come this way only once so we should litter their pathways with quality experiences."
We all work to help our children succeed academically but, just as importantly, we want our children to grow in confidence and self-esteem and to give them the many social skills they will need as they move on through life.
Equality and Inclusion
We at Old Town Primary are striving to be a totally inclusive school community. We welcome all pupils regardless of their race, religion, gender, ability or disability, or family circumstances. We welcome all families and carers and encourage their participation in school life, again regardless of the above characteristics, so for example we welcome families with one, two or more parents/carers, same sex or mixed sex parents/carers, disabled parents/carers, of all faiths and none.
We strive to promote positive self-images, positive experiences and positive interactions between all pupils through the school curriculum, books and teaching resources and playground procedures and rules. We have a positive anti bullying policy and bullying, including the use of discriminatory language, is not tolerated in our school. This includes for example racist and homophobic language. We have equal expectations of standards of behaviour, effort, achievement and sports participation for boys and girls.
We strive to make school accessible for all and we make all possible adjustments to encourage participation of pupils, parents/carers and staff with any kind of disability. There is separate level access from Billy Lane to the new reception/office area, where there is another wheelchair accessible toilet. If you would like this information in another format (e.g. Braille, large print, audio print or computer file) or another language, telephone 01422 842859.
At Old Town, we value the partnership between home and school and we are proud of our "open door" policy where parents and guardians are welcome to visit our school and discuss things wherever necessary.
I feel very proud to be part of the Old Town School community and hopefully you can see that our school is a happy and exciting place to learn. All visitors are warmly welcome so please get in touch if you would like to meet us and look around.
