A welcome to Shenley Primary School from Headteacher, Katy Longley
Dear families, friends and visitors
Shenley School has many strengths. There is a real sense of energy and pride from the pupils and the dedicated staff all working together with Shenley's families to provide fantastic learning experiences. It is my aim to ensure that everyone at the school feels part of this winning team, knows that they are valued and cared for, and are inspired to fulfil their potential to take their place in society as individuals who can make a real difference.
As a teacher for more than 18 years I have been very fortunate to work in several diverse and inspiring schools both here in the UK and in the USA. I believe that every child has the right to the highest quality teaching and deserves irresistible education. I hope to build on and develop more opportunities at Shenley that will broaden and enrich our children's development, such as the expressive and performing arts, and modern foreign languages (Shenley specialises in Spanish). I wish especially to embrace new ideas and modern technology to equip our learners with understanding for the future.
A child's success comes from a commitment to working in partnership with their families. I am always happy to meet with parents on any matter regarding their child or the school. You will be able to catch me on the playground `meeting and greeting' the children most mornings and after school, or alternatively an appointment can be made via the school office.
We hope you find the site useful, interesting and fun. We have designed it with children and parents in mind and we want it to be used not only by families who are already members of our community, but also by people who are moving into the area and are looking for a good school for their children.
Our school motto is:
"Take pride in your learning and your school will take pride in you"
