Together, we share commitments that every child deserves an outstanding education, that schools work most effectively when they work together and that every school in our Trust is unique and should serve the needs of its own local community.  In addition, we share the aim that we will not let social disadvantage be an obstacle to success. We know that with great leadership, inspirational teaching, caring pastoral support and hard work, every child in every school can succeed.

Our modern buildings enable us to offer our pupils and their families a wide variety of educational provision.  Our youngest children (three to five year olds) work within an open-plan unit offering an enabling environment for nursery and reception children to learn through play through the Foundation Stage Curriculum.  This vibrant and stimulating setting is surrounded by a large, secure outdoor play area, which is used daily, in all weathers, as part of their learning experiences.  

Our building is fantastic! The modern design incorporates the latest thinking in planning and layout, building standards and information technology. The classroom furniture and many of the classroom resources are specifically designed and selected to complement the new National Curriculum (2014). Specialist teaching areas such as the school hall, drama and music studios and the 'Enquiry Zone' support the teaching of a 21st century curriculum. Outdoor facilities include secure, open play spaces, outdoor classrooms, sports field, allotments for gardening, an amphitheatre and a wildlife pond.

Our Breakfast Club

We are delighted to be able to run a popular and fun Breakfast Club at Shakespeare.  Our club provides the perfect start to the school day with a range of fun activities and breakfast options. 

Breakfast Club sessions are available every morning.  The club begins at 7:30am until 8:45am each day.

Our After School Club

We run extended childcare every day during term time from 3.10pm to 5.45pm.

This facility is open for up to 15 pupils each day from Reception to Year 6, who are members of our school family.  The Bards is run within our learning zone area inside the main entrance to the school and children can be collected through the main reception area.

The children take part in a range of fun activities using our indoor and outdoor facilities.  As part of the club, they also enjoy drinks and a snack.

At Shakespeare Primary School our mission is to create a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment in which all members of the school community can grow in self-esteem and develop to their full potential.

We embrace the fact that every child is unique, and therefore, the educational needs of every child are different. This is particularly the case for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Plymouth uses an orange 'Local Offer icon' to show services that define themselves as suitable for children and young people with SEND. These are part of Plymouth's SEND Local Offer. We recommend that you contact the service provider to make sure the service is suitable for your child or young person.
