We aim to promote the 7 learning values to all Fellside children to teach them the importance of investing in learning to learn. These values underpin both our curriculum and our ethos and they are central to the tenets of daily life at our school.


We aim for children to show curiosity in their learning; to ask questions and  take risks.


We encourage children to give 100% effort and to be prepared to practise.


We want Fellside children to be brave in their learning; to be excited to try new things.


Using imagination; pushing boundaries; suggesting new ideas and being resourceful – all part of daily life at Fellside.


We encourage tolerance, working together as a team and asking for and offering help.


Learning from mistakes and sometimes finding things difficult is all part of being a learner.


Acceptance of helpful criticism so we can learn from it ensures that we keep improving.

Professor Nitrate came in to show us some wacky science experiments! We talked about the three things needed to make fire: oxygen, fuel and heat. We made our own fire! It was a good job we had a special glove on to protect our hand! Next we made some mini explosions!...

Wonderful Ambassadors

The children of Fellside are wonderful ambassadors for our school.  Hardworking, polite and with positive attitudes to all areas of school life, they are truly delightful and we are privileged to work with them.  Our commitment to the children and their families is to present as many valuable opportunities as possible to them – whether in sport, music, the arts or citizenship – whilst maintaining a strong academic focus through a stimulating curriculum that enables every child to succeed.

Enriching the Curriculum

Fellside children benefit from a curriculum that is greatly enriched to appeal to every child, no matter what they like doing.  We participate in a wide range of sporting activities, festivals and competitions including football, basketball, tennis, cricket and even fencing!  Our annual ‘Strawberries and Wine’ concert is a much anticipated event in which we embrace the musical achievements of our pupils.  Thanks to our class assemblies and whole school performances such as those at Christmas, we seek to invite friends and families of the school to share the work of our amazing children as often as possible.  One thing is for sure.  There’s always much happening at Fellside!
