Headteacher's Welcome

We challenge pupils to attain high academic and personal outcomes—setting and achieving ambitious goals in all they do.

Our approach to supporting emotional well-being ensure conditions for learning are right. Our curriculum is knowledge-rich, broad, balanced and flexible—meeting individual needs and interests, building on children’s natural curiosity.

Our expectations and values encourage pupils to work and play together positively, developing mutual respect by understanding each other’s cultures, faiths and opinions.

When visiting, you immediately notice the positive learning behaviour of our children and the enthusiasm and warmth of our staff. The Firs family is built on successful relationships—with parents, the community, other schools in Washwood Heath Multi Academy Trust, and beyond. A good education comes from a partnership between home and school—your children are on a lifelong journey of learning; we are privileged Firs Primary School is where the journey begins.

There's no 'I' in team and there's no 'The' in Firs. We're Firs Primary School. When you look up our URN, that's what it says.

We'll send of the meet the teacher slides to all parents. Make sure you know their contents. We want 'no alarms and no surprises' when we start phoning about uniform and water bottles and reading records and shoe laces and PE kits and spellings...

No - we do not cover anything that isn't statutory. This includes what you may think of as 'sex education.' Incidental questions have the policy shared with you this week applied. Here's your link to the right government paperwork: https://t.co/qEj5RNSEAr

YES - we do use the correct names for body parts from Y1. YES - we will talk to the Y5 and Y6 parents for this year before the Puberty Lessons. YES - this is a school where everyone belongs, and we acknowledge all loving family structures and lifestyles without comment.

Well done to IH in Y6 who has added to our knowledge of John Blanke for our assemblies - including the two possible derivations of his surname - both of them with racist undertones.
