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!
To celebrate Children in Need this year the children and staff have dressed up in their brightest yellows and craziest spots!
Lots of children and staff joined in the celebrations by creating the maddest, craziest hairstyles ever seen.

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.
Unfortunately, there has been a confirmed case of Covid 19 at Istead Rise. This means our Year One class will be closed until 7th December. All other classes remain open as normal. Letters explaining the situation in full have been sent to all parents. Thank you.Full Tweet
It's beginning to look alot like Christmas! Friends of the Forest worked incredibly well last week and made their very own Christmas Tree with Mrs T Clark and Mrs Neal. The group were so proud of their efforts they couldn't wait to show them off to Mr Payne! https://t.co/SBjECKjZy1Full Tweet
