Bishopton Primary School is a happy place where children, staff and parents all work together to learn more about themselves and the world around us. Bishopton has recently been inspected by Ofsted in 2013 and has been awarded 'Good' overall with many areas of Outstanding.
The construction of 3 brand new purpose built Key Stage 2 classrooms and a shared resource area was started in January 2004. The building was completed in May 2004 and the children moved into a wonderful facility for teaching and learning. This meant that we had 5 spacious well equipped classrooms throughout the school. Over the summer 2008 due to increasing numbers we created an additional classroom, and following this in 2009 we have had another superb classroom classroom built for our Year 6 children. This year we have progressed to having seven working classrooms meaning we now have single aged classes throughout the school, with less than 30 pupils in each class, some having as little as 20.
The school benefits from a well equipped computer room with 16 of the latest PC’s, iPads and wi-fi technology; a child friendly library full of wonderful books that was re-sited and extended over last Summer; a secure and stimulating outdoor play area for our Reception children; and expansive grounds for Physical Education, outdoor environmental activities and recreational use at break and lunchtimes. We have also recently built a new play and climbing area and quiet reading area for all classes to use at lunchtime.
We have our own gardening area which we all take part in to look after and regularly grow our own produce.
The school is a modern, semi-open plan building with excellent facilities and a strong, ‘family’ feel to it. It has been described as a town school with a village school atmosphere, in which teachers, parents and all who are part of the school, work together for the benefit of the children.
There is also a private nursery on site that provides excellent facilities and activities for pre-school children.
In April 2008 The Local Authority installed a children’s centre on the Bishopton Site, which now provides many additional facilities for the local community.
We are now friends with a school in France!
