Welcome to Istead Rise Primary School. We are an exciting, forward looking, and innovative school.
Our children are hard-working, enjoy a challenge and love to learn. We provide a huge array of activities for children to broaden their experiences which you will be able to see through our news and updates. Working in partnership with parents, carers and other key members of the community we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all.
If you want to find out about what we are learning please have a look at our ‘year group’ pages. Paper copies are available on request from the school office.
The website is regularly updated so come back again soon to keep up to date with everything that is going on here at Istead Rise Primary School!

Congratulations to our Year 1 & 2 children for a fantastic Christmas Sing Along Show this afternoon.
Our children had the most amazing time this morning at the Panto! For an hour and a half the children were transported back to the magical setting of Jack and The Beanstalk.
Our little Acorns performed beautifully yesterday afternoon in their first Nativity. Thank you to all of our Parents and Carers who attended.
All members of the Istead Rise team work hard to ensure that children receive the very best deal by having high expectations. At Istead Rise there are four core values which the school works hard to instil. These are: independence, respect, perseverance and self-reflection. Istead Rise Primary School uses a Restorative Approach to manage behaviour and deal with conflict. This approach focuses on developing positive relationships within the school and creates a safe, secure environment which enables children to develop both academically and socially.
During the last academic year there have been significant changes to how all subjects are taught at Istead Rise, which has led to a notable rise in pupil outcomes. The mornings are dedicated to the consistent teaching of core subjects (reading, writing and maths). In English teachers follow a carefully considered approach to teaching and learning, based around ensuring pupils are fully equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to produce many pieces of outstanding, independent writing. Within mathematics, we follow the mastery approach which enables children to make accelerated progress across the curriculum at a pace suitable for their own individual, developmental needs. The school also follows the Cornerstones curriculum to deliver topic based learning during the afternoons, which provides children with real life, exciting learning experiences.
Istead Rise works collaboratively with other primary schools within the Trust to share good practice. The school also benefits from the Friends of Istead Rise Primary School (FIRPS) fundraising committee, who organise events throughout the year to raise additional funds for the school.
Thank you to all of our children Parents & Carers who donated towards this year's Poppy Appeal. Istead Rise Primary collected an amazing £412.18 which is our best year to date! https://t.co/DNQSenihQrFull Tweet
