It is our pleasure to introduce you to Bredon Hancock’s Endowed C.E. First School. We are extremely proud of our school and invite you to come and see it for yourself.We are a small village school with approximately 170 pupils, arranged currently in six classrooms each accommodating a single year group.
We have several outdoor learning areas including two playgrounds, a field, a gazebo and two forested areas (one used by all children for Forest School). We have been developing our grounds to incorporate a “Spiritual Garden”, colourful creative activity stations and more outdoor opportunities for the Early Years children.
When visiting the school you will see and feel for yourself the positive, happy, enthusiastic and caring ethos that is evident everywhere.
Our children feel confident and secure. They are incredibly hardworking and excited about learning. They enjoy their experiences and leave our school with a real thirst for more.
As our children progress through the school they are gradually encouraged to take on more responsibility for their learning, developing their own ability and learning to make worthwhile choices.
We offer a broad, balanced and creative curriculum that gives children equal access to a plethora of exciting activities including opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural enhancement. We provide our pupils with a stimulating and engaging learning environment. We believe these things combined allow children to make the most of opportunities, leading them to develop positive self-esteem and experience success.
Our children access ICT through C-Touch interactive screens in every classroom as well as through our set of 30 notebook computers and 32 iPads that can be moved around school and are used very often in every class. Each of the teachers have an iPad which enhances the learning and teaching in every class.
The classrooms are well resourced and appointed. Our staff work hard to create an atmosphere and ambience that is conducive to outstanding learning.
We have completely refurbished many of the school buildings in the last few years including an extension to our hall which is now fantastic and allows us lots more indoor space for our activities.
We continue to expand the number of opportunities to invite parents and members of the community in to share our experiences, celebrate our achievements and work with the children.
We look forward to welcoming you!
