The Primary Section of Mayfield School

The Primary Section of Mayfield School opened in purpose built accommodation September 2014 and now caters for children in Years R, 1, 2 and 3.  In our short time, we have already built up a tremendous track record of success and our highlights have included:

  • Over 80% of children have achieved a 'Good Level of Development' at the end of their Reception years in each year;
  • Consistently high pass rates in the Phonics Screening Assessment at the end of Year 1;
  • Our first set of Key Stage 1 Teacher Assessments levels were above national averages in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Science;
  • Parents rated Early Years Provision as 'Outstanding' in our Kirkland Rowell Parents Survey in  with 100% of Infant Section parents saying that they would recommend this school to other parents;
  • Receiving five applications for each of our 60 places for admission into Year R in 2017;

In response to this unprecedented demand for places in our school, we are now adding an additional class to our Key Stage 2 provision from September 2018.  Therefore there will be an additional 30 spaces available for Year 3 children from next September.  

We hope that you will enjoy reading about the Primary Section at Mayfield School in this section of our website.  We look forward to you joining with us in making your child's time at Mayfield a tremendously happy and rewarding one.
