Nurturing Achievement: Growing and learning together

Welcome to Battyeford CE (VC) Primary

Expectations for pupils’ behaviour and conduct are consistently high.Lessons are focused and this is reflected in pupils’ good attitudes to learning. Pupils are proud of their school and are courteous and confident to engage in conversation. They listen well to adults and their peers, and show respect for the views of others. Attainment at the end of key stage 1 has been consistently good for the last three years and has steadily increased in KS2 and is now above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics.

Battyeford School Council

At the start of each year, two children in each class from Y1 to Y6 are chosen by their classmates to be their school council representatives. They show that they would be good representatives for the role by preparing a presentation for their classmates before the class apply democratic values and vote for the best candidates. This is a very rewarding experience for those children involved and great practise for adult life!


At the first meeting, the children separate into 4 sub-committees where their role will be focused for the rest of the year. The committees are led by 2 members of staff and meeting every half term to discuss ideas and opinions. The sub committees are:

  • Collective Worship (Mrs Croisdale and Mrs Burkinshaw)
  • Growth Mindset (Mrs Arkless and Mrs Deane)
  • Fundraising (Mr BG and Mrs Halstead)
  • Playground (Miss Wright and Miss Pearson)


By working in smaller groups, the council ensure that tasks are shared out and that everyone's voice is heard.
