Netley Primary school is a locally based primary school with over 430 pupils aged from 3-11years old. The pupils at Netley come from the local community and represent the wide range of social and cultural backgrounds typical of an inner-city school. This rich cultural background is greatly valued at the school, and the primary aim is to encourage every child to be curious, creative and challenged. Netley Primary is also home to The Woodlands, a resource base unit for children with autism.
The pupils’ voices are strong at Netley and are taken seriously by the teachers. Each year group (years 2-6) elect a male and female from their classes to make up the School Council. This council meets fortnightly and is an active voice in the decision process at the school.
The school works closely with local partners, such as British Land, the British Library, City Learning Centre, Addison Lee and Dentsu Aegis Media. The team at Regent’s Place have worked with Netley Primary for some years, carrying out a one-to-one numeracy skills programme with children who struggle with the subject.
The primary school is very much part of the local community, not just concerning the young pupils, but also with school-home support, providing parental guidance, help with the transition from Primary and Secondary School and information regarding financial and housing issues. Netley have now moved into their new building. Netley Campus, opened in September 2014. They share this site with the Adult Learning Centre (formally the Community Learning Centre) Robson House (a pupil referral unit) and NHS speech and language therapists.
We are always looking for more volunteers for all aspects of school life, including reading, numeracy, after school clubs and with our garden. If you are interested in taking part or would like more information on how you can get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
