Welcome to South Rise

Learning that anything is possible

South Rise Primary School aims to be an outstanding, values-based school at the heart of our culturally diverse community. Through innovative practice we strive for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential. We aspire to develop great thinkers who demonstrate curiosity, resilience and embrace challenge. We aim to develop confident, independent individuals who are fully prepared for life in modern Britain.

Hazel Brown – Head of School

South Rise Primary School is a values based learning community, committed to the education of the whole child. We are always seeking new and creative ways of engaging children in learning experiences that motivate and entice them to deepen their understanding and develop a lifelong love of learning. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum with creative contexts providing the stimulus to engage children in quality experiences. We strive to achieve high academic standards for all children and believe this is best achieved through teaching that is engaging, innovative and personalised to children’s needs.

We are committed to children valuing learning both in and out of school, providing an extensive annual programme of educational visits and residential school journeys.  We have a very close relationship with our community and always listen to the views and desires of children and parents so that we can keep improving and enhancing all that we do. We have a community room for parents to use at the beginning and end of the day and also hold monthly coffee mornings so that parents can explore ideas with the Executive Headteacher and Head of School. We survey parents twice a year to gain their views and ideas for developments and consult with pupils regularly to ensure they have a central voice in school self-evaluation.

As an increasingly successful school, we are committed to working with and learning from others. South Rise is a member of the Compass Partnership of Schools, along with Willow Dene School, Halstow Primary School, Deansfield Primary School, Horn Park Primary School, Wingfield Primary School and Alderwood Primary School, providing innovative strategic leadership for all seven learning communities. We are very proud of our federation and are always looking for ways of strengthening the links between the seven schools.
