Welcome to

Pollington-Balne Church of England Primary School.


As the Headteacher of Pollington-Balne I am delighted to be working with hardworking enthusiastic pupils and dedicated staff, who are eager to achieve in everything that we do.


Although academic success is important to us, as can be seen through our above National Average results, we are keen to develop the whole child, and support pupils’ emotional and social development. We provide a fully rounded education for pupils with opportunities for all children to shine, and promote our strong values of teamwork, respect and inclusivity though our Christian ethos.


We work closely with the on-site Preschool, and local secondary schools to ensure smooth transition for pupils, and through the Home School Association, work hard to involve families in their children’s learning.

Please take a look at what our fantastic school has to offer by visiting us and seeing first hand what a wonderful school we have here at Pollington-Balne.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.




Mrs Katherine Rawes

Pollington-Balne CE Primary School

Welcome from the Chair of Governors


As the Chair of Pollington-Balne Primary School, on behalf of the governing body we have great pleasure in extending a warm welcome from our small, friendly village school. As a place where we strive to encourage all our pupils to ‘be the best that they can be’, it is the role of the governing body at Pollington Balne Primary school to support the vision of the headteacher and teaching team by ensuring that children’s aspirations are fostered and supported through inspirational educational experiences.


As a governing body, we are not here to get involved with the day to day running of our school however, we are passionate about providing strategic direction and accountability through a ‘critical friend’ approach of processes and practices, including aspects of finance. In doing so, we can reflect upon and ‘champion’ our headteacher to implement improvement plans, through regular interactions in support of reaching ultimate learning experiences for our children.


We have an active and dedicated governing body at Pollington Balne Primary, all of whom have a wealth of skills and experience in various areas such as IT, Health and Safety, Finance, Early Years and HR to name but a few. As a church school, we also have a religious input to the social, moral and Christian outcomes of the school community from our appointed diocese governors.


If you would like to know more about becoming a governor or provide further feedback and would like to get contact us, then we would be happy to hear from you please contact the school office.


Kind Regards

On behalf of Pollington-Balne Primary Governors,


Chair of Governors,

Anna Laycock-Brown
