At Shipton Bellinger Primary School we aim not only to give the very best education to your child but also to work in partnership with you in developing your child’s full potential.
Our school is fortunate to be staffed by a dedicated team of professionals who design a creative and challenging curriculum and organise the classrooms in such a way that children work within a stimulating learning environment. It is also supported by an active Governing Body who seek to maintain the highest standards for the school.
We believe that children flourish when they feel secure and valued. We are proud of our reputation for nurturing a caring environment with the emphasis on self-esteem, co-operation and mutual respect. In return we receive a high standard of social behaviour from the children.
The building includes seven classrooms, hall, kitchen, library and community room and retains its village atmosphere. The grounds have been extensively re-developed for both recreational and academic pursuits.
I hope you enjoy looking at our website and seeing what we offer to the children at the school.

We are delighted to introduce our Head Boy and Head Girl - William and Bethany
Why is the school great?
We’re William and Bethany, the head boy and head girl of Shipton Bellinger Primary School. One of the things we love about the school, is that the teachers are some of the nicest and most reassuring people we know. All of the pupils are very friendly and always keep an eye out for anyone who is upset or feeling left out.
What is the environment like?
The area around us is a very calm, fun and especially safe. The equipment is well cared for and makes everyone feel safe, and definitely happy. All of the teachers make sure everyone is ok and if they are not, they will try their very best to make things right.
Who are the head boy and head girl?
We are William and Bethany. Our job is to make sure everyone (including the teachers) is alright. We also show parents around the school if they would like their child to join the school. We represent the school in events as well as the other pupils. We have a lot of different responsibilities. If anyone is having trouble with anything in school (or just needs our help), they can come to us and we will try our very best to help them.
Overall, we love the school and think it is very safe, fantastic and your child will enjoy it very much, like we do. Come here and see for yourself!
The children have also voted for their new House Captains:
SARUM - Billy Read and Lily Stiff
STONEHENGE - Jack Booth and Abbie Simmonds

This was a highly successful day. It gave children a good insight into the world of the military and in particular, the emotional problems faced by families left behind during deployment and exercise. Your contributions has raised £90 for SAAFA.
