Binfield CE Primary School
About the school
As an Aided church school, we have a strong Christian foundation, which means that we take every child’s spiritual and moral development as seriously as their academic, physical, social and cultural development. Our school has been on its current site since the mid-1980s, when it was created by the merger of two small church schools at either end of the village, All Saints and St. Mark’s. Our Trust Deed makes it explicit that we are here to provide an education, first and foremost, to the children of Binfield village and the surrounding area, no matter what their beliefs. As such, we welcome absolutely everyone. There is no expectation that children and families will have a Christian faith, or any other faith (or none), and no preference is given in our Admissions Policy. The overriding priority is given to local families (i.e. distance from the school) and whether they have siblings already attending. We are in the heart of Binfield Village and are proud to be a very good school serving its local community.
Community and team work are extremely important to us. We have developed very strong partnerships between parents, governors, staff, children, churches, local community groups and everyone else involved in the life of the school. We hope that you will feel welcome to get involved and to contribute whatever you feel able to offer to our school community.
We work hard to ensure that every child feels welcome and empowered to succeed within a caring Christian community. As an ‘Advanced Thinking School’, we place a high priority on equipping children with the tools needed to develop life-long learning skills – we call these our ‘Power Tools for Learning’ (more information can be found in this section of out website). We encourage children to work hard and persevere in order to achieve their best in all aspects of their learning, whether academic, physical or creative.
