Welcome from the Head teacher:

On behalf of the school community, I would like to warmly welcome you to Mountnessing C of E Primary School.  We are a small village school and care very much for our pupils, as a pupil once said, ‘we are small, but we have big hearts’. You will see smiling faces and hear lots of laughter when you visit us, along with some excellent work in every part of our school. 

We are very proud of Mountnessing C of E Primary School and the way in which everyone works together to make it a happy and caring place. We believe that every child should receive the best possible education and we foster a learning environment in which our children become responsible, thoughtful and independent individuals. 

Our school is very special in many ways. Our site is unique with a leafy lane separating our two school buildings. We have a lot of wonderful outdoor space which we use in our creative curriculum. We are a Forest School and our grounds and nearby forest area play a big part in helping the children learn to take risks, make sensible choices and to overcome challenges, all in a safe environment.  

We have high expectations of our children and believe that every child should have the best possible education and aspire to great things. We carefully support, guide and challenge our pupils as they progress on their learning journey through our school.  

Our Christian ethos runs through everything we do. These Christian values help to develop a family feel to our school.

I feel lucky and very proud to be the head teacher of Mountnessing C of E School.

We look forward to meeting you, 

Holly Obank
