From 1st July 2011 Reid Street School will be an Academy, independent of Local Authority control. All funding and regulation for our school will come directly from the government.

This will mean that the school has additional funding and freedoms and we intend to use those advantages to further the needs of our children. Reid Street is able to convert to an academy because it has been categorised as being ‘Good with outstanding features’.

Only schools, such as ours, who have some areas judged as ‘outstanding’ in their most recent inspection reports can choose to convert to academies.

This brochure will provide you with information about Reid Street School. For parents who already have children in our school, this booklet will be familiar.

For new parents and prospective new parents I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you, and to assure you that my staff and I will do all that we can to ensure that your child will be happy and successful whilst at Reid Street School.

Reid Street Primary School
Mission Statement
At Reid Street Primary School we aim to provide a happy, friendly, caring environment, where children feel secure and valued: children are encouraged to develop self-discipline and mutual respect for each other and for all adults in an atmosphere which promotes learning and excellence, enabling children to fulfil their true potential.

Parents and visitors are welcomed into the school. Their involvement and contribution is sought consistently across the school in a partnership which enhances the children’s education, welfare and social awareness.

All members of staff, teaching and non-teaching alike are valued and are actively encouraged to extend and develop their teaching skills and interests.
