Bonnygate Primary School and Nursery is a two form entry school set in the heart of South Ockendon. The accommodation at Bonnygate has undergone many improvements in recent years. We have a fully equipped air-conditioned ICT suite for curriculum, ICT and after-school clubs. We have two large halls that are used for assemblies, PE, theme days and concerts. We have a dedicated base, The Willows where small intervention groups are taken for targeted learning in core subjects and our breakfast room, library, sensory room and large playing fields are used daily.
Our new curriculum is skills based with English and Maths at its centre, whilst ensuring that we meet the children’s needs. We aim to develop a learning environment where pupils lead the learning. We truly believe that parents/careers should work in partnership with the school in order for every child to achieve their potential. We also work collaboratively with other education support providers, such as the Royal Opera House, to enrich the children’s learning opportunities and experiences.
Whether you are a visitor, parent/carer, pupil or member of staff we hope that you will find a warm welcome at Bonnygate Primary School and Nursery. Our aim is to provide a safe, supportive and challenging environment where everybody (including staff) has the opportunity to reach their full potential as learners and importantly the children take ownership of their own learning. We believe that this can only be achieved if a child feels happy and secure, and our staff work hard to provide this environment for our pupils. Everyone, be it a child or adult, is made welcome as an individual with his or her unique talents, abilities and personality. We hope that every member of the school will feel at home at Bonnygate.
