Dear Parents, I am quite sure that you have heard the news yesterday that all schools will be closing on Friday for an indefinite period of time, except for those children of essential service personnel. We can assure you that school will still open this Friday as usual for all children in classes 1 to 5. We await further guidance from the DFE on the finer points. Please be patient as we cannot answer individual questions by email and phone. We will keep you informed as frequently as we are able. Best wishes Mrs Sharpe

The pupils, staff and governors of The Pochin School would like to welcome you to our exciting website. An opportunity to share in some of the new, exciting, interesting and informative aspects of school life.

The Pochin School is a successful school with a very dedicated staff who care about the needs of all our community members. We are proud to be able to offer a stimulating environment which aims to develop each child's potential while encouraging their individuality. We are a school that is always striving to do better and one that faces the challenges of education with a positive attitude.

We are a school with a long history of success and achievement balanced by an outward looking profile that aims to learn from the educational environment around us. However, we contrast this with a traditional feel about the school with smart school uniform and long established traditions.

The Pochin School is a member of the Bradgate Education Partnership (external link) and STEP Teaching Alliance (external link).

If you'd like to get in touch, please use any of the methods shown on the Contact Us page. We'd also like to hear what you think about our website - so why not leave us a lovely message on our Guestbook, too?

We hope you enjoy your visit to our web, and you will become a regular visitor!
