Welcome to Pitton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School.
Welcome to Pitton Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School website. We hope that the information offered will help you to gain an insight into the life and ethos of our school.
Pitton Church of England Primary School lies five miles east of Salisbury in Wiltshire. It is a happy, successful small village school with around 100 pupils, organised in two Infant Classes and two Junior Classes. The school enjoys Voluntary Aided status, in recognition of its historical foundation and close link with the village church of St. Peter's, Pitton.
Our modern school building was opened by the Bishop of Ramsbury in November 2001. The original school building is next to the school and dates from 1850. Our school is sited on two acres of land and our premises include a large hall, four classrooms, and excellent facilities for the education of our young children. Spacious play areas, including adventure play equipment and a school playing field, surround the buildings. There is a wooden gazebo used for outdoor learning activities and also as a quiet place for reflection. The children also enjoy activities in the village and in the nearby Clarendon forest.
We are very proud of our school and the dedicated team of staff, governors and parents that help to make our small community very special. Our school and extensive sports field, nestling in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, make an idyllic setting in which your child can develop.
We consider Pitton CE Primary to be more of a family than a school. In partnership with parents, we nurture the children so that when they leave our care and go onto the next stage of their education, they feel prepared and motivated to meet new challenges in their journey through life. Our parents tell us how much they value the school's close-knit family atmosphere and how much their children enjoy coming to Pitton School. We combine high expectations of work and behaviour with care and concern for the personal, social and spiritual development of each child as an individual.
To appreciate fully what makes our school so special, you'll need to visit us and observe our children at work and play. You will also have the opportunity to have your questions answered by the staff and the children.
If you have any queries about our school, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would be delighted to hear from you.
