Welcoming Lichfield's little learners

Excitement filled the air as Streethay Primary School recently welcomed its first ever cohort of pupils.

The free school, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, opened on a brand new, purpose-built site at the heart of the Roman Heights and Cathedral View housing developments in Streethay, Lichfield.

Head of School, Stuart Taylor, commented: “This is the start of an exciting chapter for the area, enabling local families to access high-quality education and childcare provision.”

To meet the area’s increasing demand for Primary school places, the school opened to a larger number of pupils than initially planned, with Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils starting.

Pupils were welcomed into a modern barn-inspired building – constructed by Miller Homes in conjunction with Seddon, in partnership with Staffordshire County Council– with access to a large outdoor learning and play area, including a football pitch.

Mr Taylor concluded: “We are looking forward to working with pupils and their families to create an innovative learning environment which nurtures social and emotional development, as well as academic performance.”
