Sadly, our school is currently closed for most children. We are only partially open for the children of keyworkers and vulnerable children in the fight against the Coronavirus, who cannot be safely looked after at home. We have a skeleton staff attending and as such are accepting communication via email only – firstname.lastname@example.org
All our home learning can be found here: Home Learning Resources. Stay Safe, Stay at Home. With my best wishes to all our families. Mr. Purkiss

Full Wraparound Care service at Bathwick!
Our school is now open on every school day throughout the year from 7.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Parents can book their child into Breakfast Club and into After School Club. This service provides additional activities for our children and allows much greater flexibility to the normal drop-off and pick-up times. We’ve recreated a family environment – the ‘Club family’ where children can enjoy a relaxed choice of activities at both breakfast and after school care. Existing Parents can book here: ‘Wraparound Care’

Our 2019 Inspection Report
Our school was inspected under the latest SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) in February 2019.
The highest grading of ‘Excellent’ was awarded to our school, which ‘reveals extraordinary, innovative practice perhaps not seen before. It sets incredibly high expectations for Church schools.’ Amongst other things the report highlighted our ‘inspirational culture of very high aspirations which has enabled pupils to flourish’, and our ‘innovative curriculum which excites pupils in their learning’.
Open Mornings/ Afternoons
We have now held all of our annual Open Mornings and Afternoons for children due to start school in September, but if you missed these and are interested in visiting the school or in applying for a place for your child in a different year group, you are very welcome to come for an individual tour of the school. Please phone us on 01225 465654 to arrange a convenient time. We very much look forward to meeting you and your child!
