Our Vision:

At Banks Methodist Primary School we strive to follow Jesus’ example and learn together with resilience and faith.  

Through living out our Christian Values we seek to equip our pupils with the resilience to be independent, inquisitive individuals with a love for learning across all areas of the curriculum so that they are able to reach their full potential and flourish to be the very best they can be for themselves, our community and for our wonderful world.  We would like our children to appreciate and nurture our society and be the positive change of the future.  



Banks Methodist is a co-educational school for children aged 2- to 11 years of age. It is designated a Voluntary Controlled Methodist school. This connection with the Methodist Church helps make the school distinctive in that it operates within the Methodist Foundation.


We have a nursery for children aged 2 years and over.


All children start  school in the September of the year in which they are 5 years old. This means that all our children have three full years in the Foundation Stage or Key Stage One.


It is significant that Banks Methodist is a small school with small classes, where all children are known to all staff by name, developing security and confidence; which is beneficial to their learning and achievement.
