Shiney Row Primary

Shiney Row Primary School Website


The core purpose of what we do at Shiney Row Primary School is to support all our children to be the very best that they can be.  Everything we do is aimed at helping children succeed as happy confident learners.


All the staff at Shiney Row Primary School are committed to providing the highest standards of teaching and learning, through a combination of challenge, support and encouragement. We want all children to do their very best and enjoy coming to school to learn in a safe and happy environment.

We want children to develop a lifelong love of learning and we place achievement at the heart of what we believe in. We will provide the best conditions for learning that we can so all children have access to a variety of learning experiences and opportunities during their time at Shiney Row Primary School.

"We inspire, we challenge, we care"


In response to a request from parents, Friday 18th May will be a non-uniform day.  Children are encouraged to dress in red, white and blue or dress as a prince or princess in honour of the upcoming Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the weekend.


School would like to wish our Chair of Governors, Mr Arthur Falconer all the very best for the future as he steps down from the Governing Body after more than thirty years of service.  School would very much like to thank Mr Falconer for his time, help and dedication to the school over the many years.

Important Information

Nursery Places - Update

You can apply for a Nursery place as soon as your child becomes 2 and we are pleased to announce that we can offer now Nursery places to children when they reach their 2nd birthday rather than their 3rd. 

We can also offer a limited number of full time places in school at the present time.

Please contact the school office to apply for a place.  Early applications are recommended, to avoid disappointment.


Miller Homes - Library Book Donation

School would very much like to thank Miller Homes for their very generous donation of 100 books for our new school library.  The donation was made as Miller Homes celebrates the educational heritage of its new Scholars Gate development built on the area once occupied by Shiney Row College campus.  For further details please click here.
