Welcome to the website for Seven Stars community primary school. We pride ourselves in knowing our children and their families well and having high ambitions for every child in our school.
We make learning fun through our Learning Journeys curriculum and children traditionally make excellent progress during their time with us. We place great emphasis on visits and visitors to stimulate experience-based learning. In the last few months we have had visits from Celed Rock experts, the local police, an Indian dancer, a local rock band and a 'History man' as well as taken children on trips to Spaceport in Wallasey, a Hindu Mandir, a farm in Bolton and the Maritime museum in Liverpool.
100% of our teaching is good or outstanding and the children themselves are friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic about their learning. This year our Reading results were above the national average, our phonics results were the best in four years as were our end of Reception class results.
At Seven Stars School we believe that every child matters and as a school we work closely with parents, families, guardians and all agencies to ensure the best possible outcomes for all the children in our care.
I look forward to meeting you and if you would like a visit to the school, send me an email or have a chat on the phone please get in touch.
Reading for Pleasure is a key focus for us this year. For recommended reading lists for your child's age click on the link below:-
