Cottons Farm Primary

Cottons Farm Primary School is a community primary school for children aged three to eleven. It is part of the Ash Croft and Cottons Farm Primary Federation, providing a successful partnership with a local school.

The school was originally opened in 1934 as Sinfin School. In 2005 the school moved to a new building situated within the original school site. The school was re-named Cottons Farm Primary in April 2013. The new modern building provides the following accommodation: an early years unit which housesNursery and Reception age children, four general classrooms, a school hall, a nurture/ intervention space: 'The Den', a library, a group room, a practical room; school offices and a servery kitchen. Externally the school is served by an early years play area, a school playground with extensive equipment, a school field, a games court and a wildlife area.

The school’s capacity is 140 primary pupil places plus 26 FTE nursery places.

At the time of writing there are 145 pupils in education in school with 10 children (part-time) in the Nursery. A limited number of 'Flying Start' places are also available for 'rising 3s' year olds.

We have close links with local primary and secondary schools and community organisations including St Stephens Church . We also have regular links with Morrisons Flower World, Rolls Royce and other local businesses, who provide support with areas of the curriculum.
