Year 4 Shugborough Residential Visit Information
A warm welcome to the Picknalls First School website
At Picknalls First School we put the children first. We are committed to fostering a love of learning and ensuring our children meet their potential by developing a modern, creative and personalised curriculum to prepare them for the future. We want all the children to be successful learners, who really enjoy learning, make progress and achieve. Our aim is to develop confident individuals who are able to live a safe, healthy and fulfilling life. We want them to be responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to society.
"Children get a good start to their education in the Nursery and Reception classes. Pupils are polite, courteous and they behave well in lessons and around school. This is because staff care for them successfully." - OFSTED July 2013
