Our shared vision at Two Gates is for all pupils to attain the very best outcomes in terms of their academic achievement and personal development. The school motto is Love Children, Love Learning and this is at the heart of all we do at Two Gates. Being at Primary School should be a happy and fulfilling time for every child. Our job is to make sure this happen by providing a nurturing, safe environment and an ambitious, accessible curriculum that challenges and excites pupils, delivered in a progressive and systematic way so that learning really sticks.
Being part of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership enhances the opportunities and experiences we can provide the children through meaningful collaboration at all levels. We are stronger together.
We actively encourage children to have voice in their school experience and regularly make opportunities for them to talk about issues important to them, helping them relate these to wider events, past and present. Through this pupils will learn how to influence their future in a positive way, developing character and citizenship.
Above all, we want our children to remember their time at Two Gates with fondness, where the foundations were laid for lifelong learning and success.
Our web site is designed for parents and visitors to be able to access all the necessary information about the life and work of our school. We hope you find it useful. Should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
We believe that working in partnership with parents and families is essential in securing a complete educational experience and best outcomes for pupils.
We encourage and value parental involvement in their children’s schooling and aim to keep parents fully informed about the life and work of the school and specific information about their children.
We communicate in various ways:
Termly curriculum guides– these map out the learning and topics your child will be covering in school
Parent workshops– these are designed to inform and help you understand more about specific teaching and learning and how you can help your children at home.
Parent Guides– see the letters page of the web-site
Termly parent consultation evenings– you will be invited to meet with your child’s class teacher to discuss their learning and progress.
End of year reports– a comprehensive account of their school year
Texts– these are generally for reminders or to give notice of any changes

We have an open door policy– if you want to speak to a member of staff, please call us or pop in to make an appointment.
From time to time issues arise at home which may affect a child’s education and well-being. We ask that you make us aware of any such issues so that we can support your child sensitively at school. Confidentiality is assured in all cases.
If we can support you in any way you can make an appointment to speak with the Headteacher or Mrs H Pugh our Family Early Help Assistant.
We also have an extensive Family Learning Programme which includes different types of courses for parents and grandparents- from cooking to forest school and behaviour management to maths games and more… Please see the Family Learning page of the web-site for more information.
