At Ball Green Primary School, we feel that the close, supportive collaboration that we have worked hard to establish with our children, parents and wider community allows our school to flourish in a harmonious and mutually respectful environment. Together, we foster the highest expectations of the ‘whole child’ and through the provision of a rigorous, child-centred, lively and exciting curriculum that promotes enquiry and exploration, risk-taking and resilience, our children develop and embed the ambition to achieve the very best that they can regardless of their different starting points.  Like Abraham Lincoln, we believe that ‘the best way to predict your future is to create it,’ and so, at Ball Green Primary School, we do all that we can to embrace this creative process.

Our school motto is, Every child.  Every chance.  Every day.

Every member of the school community tirelessly walks this vision to ensure that every child fulfils their developmental potential and because we emphatically believe that, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon that we can use to change the world’ [Nelson Mandela].  At Ball Green Primary School, we aspire to prepare every child socially, emotionally and academically for a successful and productive life in a rapidly changing 21st century.  We create new experiences in an environment where every child learns how to think and not what to think; where every child is nurtured to believe that they can achieve and succeed; where every child values mistakes and errors as experiences that drive innovation; where every child wants to learn and naturally discover their passions; where every child is a confident learner with an inexhaustible desire to go on learning.

Collectively, we have a passion for making a difference and improving outcomes and achievement for every child.

We hope that you enjoy looking at our website and that the information answers any questions that you may have about our school.  However, should you require any additional information then please don’t hesitate to contact me or come in to see what we have to offer for yourself.  Visitors are always welcome.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
