The school has a maximum number of 140 children, split over 5 classes. This means we are skilled in teaching mixed age group classes and make the most of the opportunities this presents. Each year we are able to offer 20 places in Reception. Our Governing Body and Strategic Leadership team are committed to maintaining a discreet Year 6 class of no more than 20 pupils to ensure each pupil is properly prepared for the next stage of their education journey. A special feature of our school is the engagement and support of our parent / carer body that is keen to be involved in all aspects of school life. This may be through our hard-working Parent, Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) or by popping in to hear readers, or help with classroom jobs. Whenever possible we make use of the talents and expertise of parents and members of the local community. As a small school we have established strong partnerships with Granta Park Science Park, Cambridge University, Teaching Schools and Alliances to ensure our capacity to improve pupil outcomes is maximised at all levels. We are a proud and active partner school within the local school cluster and are used by Cambridgeshire County Council as an example of good practice. I am extremely proud to be the Head teacher of Great Abington Primary School. I am proud of our dedicated team of teachers, teaching assistants, governors, PTFA members and parent / carer body, who support and challenge on a daily basis to ensure pupil outcomes are as good as they can be for every individual. Most of all, I’m proud of our children, who continue to question, challenge and invigorate us on a daily basis! If you would like to come and look around for yourself, please contact the school office to make an appointment. I’d love you to see Great Abington School and the inspiring learning that takes place every day. Guy Underwood Headteacher | Great Abington Primary School
