Welcome - a message from the Executive Head Teacher

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,


Our school in Shadwell is an inclusive Primary School in the heart of the village.  We have a caring, family ethos which we are incredibly proud of and our excellence in academic provision and pastoral care, makes us a very popular and desirable choice for many families.  In Shadwell Primary, we know all our children as individuals and we tailor our teaching and learning to their needs in this way.  Our children quickly develop their own engagement in their learning, focusing on aspirations for their future, their resilience in developing learning and evaluating their progress along the way. Our staff are professional and approachable, caring and dedicated and our expectations are high.


In Shadwell Primary school, we nurture and celebrate children’s dreams and aspirations and we passionately believe that each day is special for our children; each day is the opportunity to grow and develop in our learning; to build knowledge, resilience, tolerance and to develop our interest in the world around us.


The Federation of Bramham and Shadwell is a well-established Federation which is dedicated to providing the very best quality in education and pastoral care for your children. We pride ourselves in our broad and balanced curriculum which is exciting and challenging. We have a talented and enthusiastic staff who are committed to personalising your child’s experiences of learning in school. We believe that the love and care given to your child in our school, along with our outstanding high expectations and outcomes, provides them with the enjoyment of long-lasting learning they will use as their foundation stone for life.


We hope you have the opportunity to look through our website and if you haven’t already, to come and visit our school where confident, respectful, happy children grow and are nurtured; where we aspire daily to achieve Excellence for All and where learning for life and education at its very best, becomes an exciting reality.


We look forward to seeing you,


Sarah Richards
Executive Head Teacher
