Pinner Park Primary School has a Nursery plus Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes.
The school is arranged in two separate buildings, each on two levels. The Lower School, Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) and Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2), are in one building while the Upper School, Key Stage 2 (Years 3 – 6), is situated in the other building.
On the ground floor of the Lower School building there is the Nursery, the Reception and Year 1 classrooms, the hall, Library areas and Group Rooms – all reached by corridors with toilet and cloakroom facilities. Upstairs is purpose built with the Year 2 classrooms, a Library and a shared working area, and again toilet and cloakroom facilities.
Each floor of the Upper School building has split levels with steps between changes in levels. There is a lift giving access to all levels of the school which may be used by members of the community with mobility needs. There is also an annex building, where the first floor is only accessible by a flight of stairs, plus a bus parked up in the playground providing extra work spaces.
The children are grouped into classes of thirty pupils, according to their age, and there are four mixed ability classes in each of the year groups. The Nursery runs two sessions, one class in the morning and another class in the afternoon, with twenty-six children in each group.
All classrooms and teaching areas contain a wide range of teaching and learning aids and educational equipment, including interactive whiteboards, as well as fiction and information books. There are also well stocked library areas around the school where children can choose books. The two halls are each well equipped for P.E., as well as furniture required for children to have their lunches. The school also has two well used ICT suites.
The school is bordered by a grass playing field and has hard surface playgrounds containing planted areas and pergolas, climbing equipment with safety surfaces, seating areas for quiet activities and areas for ball games and running. ‘Shade sails’ and parasols also provide shade in the summer. There is also a MUGA area for containing a range of games.
The Reception classes each lead onto a specific, fenced off, outside space where a range of learning activities take place on a daily basis, and the Nursery also its own separate fenced off outdoor area with a wide range of play equipment.
