Summerlea CP School Growing thoughtful learners and independent thinkers


Welcome to Summerlea Community Primary School

On behalf of the governors, staff and children, may I welcome you to our wonderful school. This website aims to give you helpful information about our aims, general organisation and curriculum and provides you with an insight into the excellent opportunities that are available at Summerlea School.

At Summerlea, the Governors and Staff strive to create a safe, caring and happy school where everybody is respected and valued. We all work together as one team to ensure that an exciting and inspiring curriculum is provided for our pupils within an exciting learning environment. 

We continually pursue high standards of academic achievement, whilst also nurturing the development of the whole child. We carefully monitor and track pupils’ progress and use this information to personalise learning to meet the needs and interests of every child. Our strong relationships with pupils and parents/carers are essential to our children’s well-being and achievement.

We are extremely proud of our inclusive, nurturing and creative school. Please contact us to arrange a visit. Our tour guide team look forward to meeting you!
