Message from the Head Teacher
Welcome to our school!

Sunnyfields Primary School is a happy, caring and fun environment to spend time in. We pride ourselves on working well as a team to ensure that our children have the very best education possible. Our team includes children, staff, governors, parents and carers. We believe that children achieve their very best when all those that are there to support, work in partnership.
We provide an education that covers all elements of the statutory curriculum as well as developing skills that will allow our children to be successful citizens. We take great care to develop good communication, problem solving skills, resilience, creativity, independence and the ability to work as part of a team. We affectionately refer to these skills as ‘The Sunny Six’.
We work hard to make sure that everybody feels welcome at Sunnyfields. We welcome parents and carers into school each Friday for our ‘Special Mention assembly’. We also hold termly open days where parents can join their children to experience what school life is like at Sunnyfields.
I have been a member of staff at Sunnyfields since 2009 after previously working in Wakefield and Leeds before moving to Sunnyfields as the Assistant Head Teacher. I have had the pleasure of leading the school as Acting Head Teacher since September 2014 and as the permanent Head Teacher from February 2015. I am fortunate to be supported by a talented team of staff who put the children right at the heart of everything that we do.
Our school has eleven classes providing education for children from three years to eleven years old. The eleven classes are split into three phases; Early Years, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Each Phase is led by a Phase Leader. The team are passionate about providing as many opportunities for our children as possible through a wide range of extra-curricular activities that take place most evenings after school. We also have a range of extra-curricular activities that take place at lunchtime including our very talented choir who meet weekly.
We welcome visitors to our school at any time, so if you would like to find out more please come and visit our school.
Mr. David Richardson
