Gunter Primary School was opened in 1930 to serve what was then the new Pype Hayes estate.
The building is designed as a single form entry primary school with nursery unit - a Child Centre with additional private nursery facilities is attached to our school. There is a large playground and extensive grass and garden areas.
The school age-range covers –
‘The Foundation Stage’ (Nursery and Reception Class - ages 3 to 5)
‘Key Stage One’ (Years 1 and 2 - ages 5 to 7)
'Key Stage Two’ (Years 3 to 6 - ages 7 to 11)
Every class has a fully qualified class teacher. In the Foundation Stage there are also qualified nursery assistants. All other classes have the support of part-time or full-time classroom assistants.
We offer additional provision through teaching specialists, support services and integration assistants. There are also many parents who regularly help in classrooms.
Our school office is open every morning from 8.15 a.m. and closes at 4.15 p.m. each afternoon. If you have any queries about the school, or need to make arrangements to visit the school, then contact one of our school secretaries and they will be pleased to assist you.
Parents are very welcome to visit or work in school. Please let us know if you would be interested in helping.
We hold regular parents’ evenings, parent workshops and open days during the year where you can come and find out how your child is progressing. However, if you have any concerns outside these times about your child, then please contact us. It helps if an appointment can be made, but we understand that sometimes this is not possible.
