- Life at Priory Fields -


Hi and welcome to Priory Fields School, it is fun and great place to learn lots of different things and make new friends. We are a friendly school and proud to be part of the local community.


At Priory Fields we have lots of fun weeks like culture week, money week, Dover week.  Also, Year 6 go on a residential to the Bowles outdoor activity centre. At Bowles you do lots fun things like rock climbing skiing and it’s something to look forward to all year! Year 6 also do big production at the end of the year, which is also great fun!


We have lots of school trips through the year and make use of our fantastic school mini-bus to explore the local area.  Our exciting reward trips also take place at the end of the year.


Our School Council helps to make Priory Fields a better place. We hold an election at the beginning of the school year and the School Council arrange charity fundraisers,  community events and help with our twinned school in Gambia.


We hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about our school, please explore our website to find out more!

Children in Year 6 have the opportunity to apply to become advocates.  In this role they help in a number of areas around the school, including the Office, library,  ICT, Early Years and Homework Club.

Our teachers teach us the most exciting topics, for example, mountains, electricity, the human heart and lots more.  We also have two TAs in each class to help us!  We have Numicon to help us with our learning in maths and lots of lovely books to help us with our English.


For PE we are lucky to have our sports coaches, Mrs Parnell and Mr Biggs. Mrs Parnell teaches us gymnastics, trampolining, dance and athletics and Mr Biggs teaches us football, basketball, tag rugby and lots of others.  We have a big school hall for indoor sports and the playground and field to use in the summer!


To help us with music we have Mr Cook, who comes in to help with the school choir and teaches clarinets, ukulele and other instruments.

We have lots of fantastic facilities at Priory Fields, Years 4-6 have their own laptops to use in class and we have an ICT suite and lots of iPads to help us with our learning.  At playtime we have Active Playground with TAs leading different activities, including the adventure playground, sports, games and toys.  Our outside area also has a school pond with nature area, bird tables, and planters where we grow our own vegetables and flowers!


Our fantastic library helps us learn and we can even issue our own books using the barcode scanner!


We have own own school kitchen and dining room where all food is freshly prepared with a ever changing menu.
