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.

About Us

At Istead Rise we are working hard towards becoming a ‘Values-based School’.

‘A values-based school seeks to promote an educational philosophy based on valuing self, others and the environment, through the consideration of an ethical values, as the basis of good educational practice. It encourages adults to model values and to give time for reflective practices that empowers individuals to be effective learners and good citizens.’

In this ever evolving world we want to ensure that we are equipping the children with the principles that will aid them to succeed in life to the highest degree.

We want values to be the constant that helps them to understand what we expect from them irrelevant of technology, job possibilities, constant changing expectations from the government etc

We want them to be able to see through all of these things to the core principles that will support them in their achievements, ensuring that they reach their full potential.

We teach these values through discrete lessons, assemblies and reflection time. We explore their meaning, ways that we can demonstrate them and discover the positive affect they can have on us and the school community.
