Sharrow is a 2 form entry primary school located just off London Road in Sheffield, serving the Sharrow area. A walk along the London Road will give you a flavour of the cultural and racial diversity of the community. The school serves an economically diverse area with housing ranging from large stone fronted Victorian properties in Nether Edge to privately-rented accommodation and Council flats. The school has a commitment to equality of opportunity for all learners and operates a vigorous inclusion policy.

All of the above contribute to creating a dynamic and diverse school community. We attach significant importance to developing children’s literacy and numeracy skills as well as their creative and expressive skills. We encourage children to develop their sporting abilities, we take part in many inter-school events and become involved in various sporting initiatives.

Our commitment to children’s good academic progress helps to ensure their future economic and social well-being. As part of this process, we encourage parents/carers to get involved with their child’s learning and work closely with parents/carers to help develop their own skills.

We have a purpose-built school building, with a children’s centre incorporated. We cater for children from 3 months to 11 years and provide learning opportunities for older children and adults out of school hours. This building has been designed and built to ensure that we are better able to meet the needs of the children and their families and enable us to develop our school philosophy - delivering a creative and exciting curriculum. Teaching takes place in year group bases.
