Our School - Statutory Information
Kitwell Primary School is based in Bartley Green in Birmingham. It is a small, self contained, single level building. We have a hall, a small library, offices and staff room, a reception area, ICT suite and nine teaching bases. Each classroom has its own sink unit and access to cloak areas and two playgrounds.
The school is surrounded by large grass areas bordered by trees and bushes. A pond, an outdoor classroom and a greenhouse all provide additional facilities for learning out of doors. Our playgrounds have sufficient seating for the children to eat their packed lunches outside when the weather permits.
Our school is single form entry and oversubscribed. Our class and admission number is thirty or slightly above in Key Stage 2. Within each class, pupils are taught individually, as a group, or as a whole class but always according to their needs and abilities.
All children between the ages of 5 and 11 study the National Curriculum as well as the school’s own curriculum. The Reception children follow the Foundation Stage Programme. This underpins all future learning by supporting, fostering and promoting children’s development. Year 1 and 2 follow the Key Stage 1 Programmes of Study, and Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 follow the Key Stage 2 Programmes of Study.
