Acocks Green Primary School is a thriving, happy, multicultural primary school situated in the heart of Acocks Green village. The school is accommodated in an Edwardian building built in 1908. It has been refurbished and redecorated over the past few years. This has ensured that the working environment is colourful and stimulating. School has been very successful in winning bids: since 2014 we have managed to secure almost £1,000,000 to replace the entire roof as well as install a brand new dining room and kitchen. In 2016 we spent nearly £200,000 to totally upgrade and refurbish our Nursery, and in 2017/18 we spent £400,000 installing a new toilet block. In 2018/19 we are spending £100,000 refurbishing our outdoor play areas as well as an additional £50,000 on a new Wellness Hub to support mental health and well-being in school.
Our children deserve the best and we constantly strive to deliver this.
Care has been taken to retain the original features where possible, and we always aim to brighten up the site with hanging baskets and flower troughs.The Nursery is housed in a separate building at the rear of the site. It too has benefited from internal refurbishment, and having recently acquired some extra land, we are in the process of enhancing the whole area for our youngest learners and their families.
We have 2 state-of-the-art ICT suites, and in line with the latest technologies, we make extra PCs and tablets available across school thanks to our wireless networks. Interactive Whiteboards and Visualisers to enhance teaching and learning are found in all classrooms.
The school has a comprehensive Intranet, which children can access from home. We have gained the prestigious ICT Mark award for excellence in ICT, and we are also an ICT Register school.. As we continue to invest in software we are confident that we can satisfy the needs of the children who have come to expect the very best.
Alongside modern technology school puts great emphasis on 'traditional' ways of learning, and we take great pride in our forest school, school garden, cookery rooms, library and music hub - all these elements enhance the broad curriculum which we offer to all our children.
