About the School

The school first opened in the early 1950s as Intake First School and had just three classes! It was known as ‘Little Intake’. Over the years it grew in size and is now a 1-form entry primary school with eight classes including our Nursery. The School caters for 210 children aged 5 to 11 and has a 39 place nursery for morning, afternoon or flexible sessions.  Much of the school was rebuilt in 2003 and the older part of the school refurbished. The school provides a spacious and attractive environment for learning. Years 5 and 6 have their own separate Classroom block,whilst in the main building, as well as the other classrooms, we have a recently refurbished and restocked Library, ICT Suite, Sunflower Base, Learning Mentor’s room, Staff Room and Offices. Years 5 and 6 have their own small group area outside their classrooms. Year 2 have the largest classroom in the school with an enormous 70 square metres. We have a large hall as well as extensive playgrounds, a playing field, pond and wildlife garden with a young orchard. The playground has benefited from improvements, including playground markings, playtime toys, a tyre park and a covered way for shelter in all weathers. This was funded by the Friends of Summerfield and the children's own fund-raising activities as well as the school. We also have a trim-trail.
