A very warm welcome to Birklands Primary School, situated in the town of Market Warsop, north Nottinghamshire.

Every child deserves the best start in life and at Birklands Primary School we strive to help our pupils develop academically and creatively.

Birklands provides a safe, nurturing environment that allows our pupils to learn, grow and develop with confidence.

I am delighted to introduce you to Birklands Primary School. We are a one form entry non-denominational school for children in Warsop and the surrounding areas.

English and Mathematics are at the heart of our curriculum. Our dedicated team provide outstanding teaching and support; nurturing all learners to reach their full potential.

I hope that our website gives you a good insight into what Birklands can or does offer your child.

We look forward to working with you on your child’s learning journey.

Celia Smith BEd (Hons)Head of School

We believe learning should be active, stimulating and engaging, and will ensure that any barriers to learning are overcome.

In April 2014 we became an academy and joined the Torch Academy Gateway Trust, allowing us to benefit from the support and guidance being part of a multi-academy trust provides.

Since 2011 the trust has been working with Meden School — as a result Meden is one of the 10 most-improved schools in the country.

By being part of the trust, Birklands Primary School has access to a whole range of services that can help support and develop every aspect of work in the school.

"At Birklands Primary School we are ambitious for all of our pupils and determined that every child, no matter their ability, will receive an excellent start to a life-long learning journey.

Our teachers are high performing professionals who go above and beyond expectations to make a difference to pupils’ lives. They are enthusiastic about understanding how children learn and are dedicated to the role of ensuring our pupils are happy and successful.

Birklands Primary School has the highest academic aspirations and, at the same time, maintains a caring, family orientated culture. The school is a calm, orderly environment that embraces all learners."

  • Birklands does Dragons Den

    So many fantastic ideas!

    As part of the Parent Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA) enterprise, students at Birklands Primary School have been taking part in their own version of Dragons Den.

    Each class has generated ideas to present to members of the PTFA with the aim of increasing the £50 they will receive.

    The ideas that have been thought up are fantastic. Foundation would like to use the money to plant and grow vegetables to then sell them to parents and carers to make a profit. Any money made will be used to purchase more gardening equipment and they will create some raised beds in the outside area.

    Their trip included a visit to the computer science department where a professor explained what they would be doing. They were then shown how to create their very own robo-duck. Every student was able to make their own, helping to develop their circuit skills and also improve perseverance through tightening lots of tiny screws.

    The aim was to create a duck that would walk when the circuit was connected and university students were on hand to offer any ...
