Welcome to Fitzmaurice Primary School.
Welcome to Fitzmaurice School. I am proud to be the Head teacher at this wonderful school where children and staff thrive. Our child centred therapeutic approach to learning ensures that all children are enabled to be successful. We know that emotionally happy and safe children learn best therefore our day is structured to ensure that children have the capacity to learn and achieve highly, regardless of their ability. As an inclusive school, we ensure that all children are successful and have a curriculum that matches their needs.
Whether your child loves music, sport, drama, history or maths, your child will find that their passions are developed through our rich curriculum that is full of exiting learning opportunities. We have a specially enhanced curriculum offer called ‘Fitz 15’, which every child who is with us from Reception to Year 6 will experience many times. These activities have been carefully selected to ensure that every child experiences: trips to the beach, to London, stays away from home and develops skills and knowledge that will stay with them throughout their life.
We are proud of our Healthy Schools Silver and Sports Mark Gold awards and have our fingers firmly crossed that we will soon be awarded with our Healthy Schools Gold award. This will be a considerable achievement as not many schools receive this award. We have links throughout the community which enhance our children’s education but we are especially pleased to that we run an intergenerational project with Wiltshire Heights Residential Care home in Bradford on Avon.
The very best way to appreciate the education your child will receive at Fitzmaurice is to visit us. Please contact the office to arrange an appointment or visit us on an open day. I really hope that I will be meeting you in person soon.
With best wishes
Mrs Tracey Dunn, Head teacher
