Welcome to our School

Welcome to Brighstone C.E. Aided Primary School, a small school in a village community. This website is intended to help you know more about the life and work of our school, and how we work together to provide a rich, stimulating, happy and caring environment for children.

Our school is situated in an idyllic village on the beautiful south west coast of the Isle of Wight. Ours is a happy school, where children of all ages work and play together cooperatively.  Our school caters for children from 4 – 11 years old, with an onsite pre-school for children from birth to school age.  The school is small enough for each child to feel at home, surrounded by friendly and familiar faces throughout the school day. We provide children with a wide range of quality and exciting learning experiences which prepare them for their next steps in their learning journey.

The staff and governors at Brighstone C. E. Aided Primary work as a dedicated, caring and hardworking team in order to ‘make things happen’ for the benefit of the children. We believe that close links between home and school are vital in promoting a safe, nurturing environment for the well-being and success of every child, and we welcome parents’ help, support and involvement, both in and out of school, enabling us to provide the very best opportunities for each child.

Our school values of love, courage and respect are promoted and shared throughout all aspects of school life.

Parent Survey – Feedback

“Brighstone School is an excellent school. Very happy with the progress my child is making”

“My child has come on in leaps and bounds and has massively surprised me. I am very happy.”

Thanks to all parents who took part in our recent Parent Questionnaire. We are proud to report that 100% of parents who responded said that their child is happy and feels safe at our school. The responses this year also show an overall improvement in the school’s performance in meeting particular pupils’ needs, supporting learning, receiving information about progress and dealing with bullying – and it was great to see that you feel we are good at keeping you well informed.

Our thanks to all parents who completed the questionnaire.
