Welcome to our school & website!
Happy - United - Inspired
Thank you for visiting our school website; we are very proud of the community feel in our village school. Threaded throughout our school, you will find a strong sense of mutual respect and tolerance for the differences we have, with each class having an agreed Code of Conduct which drives our high expectations of behaviour from all our pupils.
Shenley Primary School is a mixed ability village school with approximately 200 children on roll, between the ages of 3 and 11 years. The school has historically admitted 45 children to each year group, but is now in the process of transitioning to a one-form entry primary school; this process started in September 2020. Every class has its own fully qualified teacher, supported by a trained teaching assistant.
Each class, from Years 1 to Year 6, democratically elects a class representative to the Shenley School Parliament. These pupils have an extremely important role as they represent the class views on important decisions which affect our pupils. We have also been fortunate to welcome our local M.P. Oliver Dowden, to meet with our School Parliament in recent years, as well the children having visited the Houses of Parliament as part of their role.
