A very warm welcome to our website! 

We hope you enjoy the pages you’ll discover.

Phoenix Federation is made up of two schools, Wyken Croft Primary and Charter Primary who work together to make each school even better.

We are very proud of our brilliant children who enjoy coming to school, love their teachers and try hard to be the best they can be. Our staff are passionate about achieving success for the children and our senior staff, headteachers, governors and I share and lead that drive for success. 

The curriculum is an exciting one for, as well as our clear focus on English and Mathematics, the children have many opportunities to take part in a huge range of experiences. Visits, visitors, residential experiences, music, plays etc! Etc! Etc!

Our buildings are very modern and are very well equipped with the latest in technology and our grounds are extensive and exciting. 

We also have our own skills building programme called 7 Steps to success with elements such as Self Belief or Aspiration, Resilience or Collaboration. You’ll find them threaded throughout the schools and the curriculum. We are excited by their impact on our growing children and their real development of life skills. Look out for the surprise postcards!!! 

Both schools have successful Before and After School Clubs (our Phoenix Clubs) and each school has its own pre-school provision (Phoenix Nurseries) where we offer both 15 hours for 2 year olds and 30 hours for 3 year olds.

If you’d like further information then please click the link to take you to the school or, if you’d like to come and see us, we’d be delighted to answer your questions and give you a guided tour!
