Welcome to Friars Primary School and Nursery 


As a school, we aim to promote the academic, social and emotional development of our children within a happy and stimulating environment.

Our dedicated staff work together to ensure all children achieve their full potential with the very best learning experiences! Our aim is for all children to be independent learners who are resilient and show perseverance when challenged.

We hope that you find the information on our website useful. If you would like to visit our school, please contact our school office.


Covid-19 Update:

In the week beginning Monday 1st June we welcomed back our children in Nursery and Reception. On Monday 8th June we will reopen our doors to Year 1 and then on Wednesday 10th June it will be the turn of Year 6. At present we are closed to children in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5. We will be waiting for more information from the Government before this position changes. If you are a parent or carer of our school, please make sure that you regularly check SchoolPing, Facebook and this website for our latest updates.
