Overdale Community Primary School is a highly regarded and thriving primary school with 258 pupils on roll.

These are exciting times for Overdale as we recently moved into our £6 million brand new purpose-built school in September 2021. The new building is absolutely state of the art, in terms of being eco-friendly and operating a high standard of technology. The school architecture is very contemporary. The school is well designed and welcoming, light and bright; this newness gives a feeling of empowerment and responsibility.

Alongside this, we have spacious classrooms benefitting from natural light and ventilation, creating the best possible learning environment for our pupils and best possible working conditions for our staff. Outdoors, we have two football pitches, a rounders pitch and a one-mile running track, along with an environmental area and quiet place with logs and other features.

We use our outdoor space for orienteering and problem solving. We can teach numeracy and phonics outdoors, for example, and we also have two outdoor gyms. The school now has double the capacity of the old building on the former site and the new location provides a link between the older parts of Eastfield and the new housing developments in Middle Deepdale to the north.
