Welcome to Moss Bury Primary School & Nursery!
Welcome to Moss Bury’s website where you will find lots of useful information about our school, the children, our community, our activities and our intentions.
If you are new to the school, you may find a few points about our ethos and approach to education useful and informative.
At Moss Bury, our vision is clear:
And I am proud to say that we have made this into a reality for our children.
Moss Bury Primary School and Nursery is a one and a half-form entry school, catering for children aged 3-11 years including a full time nursery. We offer a full day in nursery with a free lunch club. This gives our parents their 30 hours' entitlement during the week, plus an additional 3.75 hours per week child care at no extra cost.
The school is situated near central Stevenage with extensive grounds and a wonderful outdoor environment. We are also very proud of to be one of only two schools in Hertfordshire with our very own unit for children with Hearing Impairments.
As a school, we fully believe that all children have the right to do as well as they can academically, as this will equip them to take the highest possible trajectory through secondary school, which will in turn, give them the best chance to succeed in whatever area of life they wish to explore when formal schooling finishes.
Academically, we are a very accomplished school and, to ensure we continue to do the best for every child, we use a range of teaching strategies to drive our success. Some approaches like our Learning Commitments scheme, which tightly focuses upon certain essential aspects of the curriculum, are successful because we ask all our parents and families to support the school and their children to do well at these key points, underpinning future progress and engagement for the children.
We are often congratulated on the politeness of our children and their enthusiasm and engagement in lessons. This is important to us, as we see Moss Bury as a place where positive lifelong habits, that will have lasting benefit and impact, are instilled in a supportive and friendly environment.
This obviously does not happen by chance. At Moss Bury, we take the promotion of positive behaviour very seriously and, by using a range of approaches – including our Mossy Explorer scheme to actively drive personal development - ensures that all of our children are not only well-behaved, but active in their adoption and use of virtues such as independence, kindness, honesty and hard work. By supporting the school in its pursuit of high standards and the implementation of our behaviour policy, all our parental and wider community are an essential part of the school’s success.
We find that by providing a safe and supportive environment, which expects the best, we tend to get the best out of our children and, just as importantly, make school life a happy and engaging experience for them.
