Welcome to Slimbridge Primary School, a happy and caring school dedicated to giving children the best start to their education. The school opened in 1906 to educate the children of Slimbridge and Cambridge. Although today our pupils are drawn from a much wider area, the school remains an important part of the community. We are fortunate to have close links with the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust in Slimbridge and with the Redwood Education Centre at Halmore, where all our children regularly attend Forest School. Our strong team of staff, governors and volunteers support our children to become confident learners who recognise the world as an exciting place, full of opportunities.

Our Vision

Providing high-quality education by valuing children as individuals, encouraging aspirations, building strengths and providing support, opportunities and new experiences in a happy school community where everyone matters.

We achieve this through partnerships between children, parents, carers, staff, governors and the wider community.
