Old Park Primary School celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. Housed in a pleasant, single storey building surrounded by extensive playing areas, the school is within easy reach of Junction 9 of the M6.

The catchment area consists of local authority, privately owned and housing association property, reflecting the very varied socio-economic backgrounds of our children. Most children transfer to Wood Green High School with which there are excellent links.
The school currently has two forms of entry. The school organisation comprises a Foundation Stage unit and two classes in each of the year groups from Year 1 to Year 6. Throughout the school the children are grouped in mixed ability classes and teachers plan and work cooperatively within phase groups.

There is a strong senior leadership team which comprises the Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teachers, Business Director, 3 Assistant Head Teachers and three senior teachers. The very successful Patch Day Nursery also operates from the School. Our staff are lively, enthusiastic and display a great commitment to the children, the school and its future development. Effective teamwork is a crucial aspect of the school’s ethos.

The school was judged to be Outstanding in our last two OFSTED inspections. We have a steady record of raised standards and our value added measures from KS1 to KS2 are consistently above average.

We actively pursue the development of a professional learning community within the school where we learn with, from, through and for each other. Our CPD programme uses a variety of strategies to suit the learning need of individuals, including class based action research. Opportunities for supported professional reflection and learning are made available to all staff.

The school has a very strong ethos based on encouraging the highest possible standards of achievement for every child, in both their academic development and areas of physical, social and emotional development.

We provide a range of extra curricular clubs to the children as well as a busy breakfast (school led) club and After school club (Patch Day Nursery led).


The school is subject to a programme of continued refurbishment and maintenance to ensure an environment of the highest standard for teaching and learning. There are 15 classrooms in total, including Nursery, a staff room, hall, dining room and various offices, store cupboards and resources areas.

The school is situated on a large site comprising 2 car parks and two vehicle entrances, we have an extensive Forest school area available on site, child sized outdoor gym equipment, a jungle gym trail, traversing wall. We have three good sized playgrounds and a dedicated EYFS play area. We are currently investing in the development of an astro pitch and have the luxury of a vast school field which is used extensively for sport within and outside the curriculum hours.
