Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the Firs Primary School website. 

It gives me great pleasure to introduce the children and staff at Firs Primary School. We are immensely proud of our school and our children.    

We hope that this website will provide you with useful information, give you a flavour of our school and help you to see what makes Firs such a special place. However, nothing can replace coming to see what we do in person.

At Firs, 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. 

We look forward to welcoming prospective parents and carers to see for themselves what makes Firs a special place.

Mr D Fance
