About our School
Reignhead opened in September 1989 as a purpose-built open-plan Primary School catering for children from 3-11 years old. Having Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 aged children in the same building allows us to cater for your child's educational experience.
Reignhead is a Community Primary co‑educational day school catering for the 3-11 year age group. Children begin their full‑time education at the beginning of the term in which they are five years old. Prior to that they may have already attended our Foundation Stage 1 Unit which is an integral part of our building.
The school is in Beighton, approximately eight miles to the south‑east of Sheffield City Centre, close to the boundaries with Rotherham and Derbyshire. Within the area there are significant developments of new housing, shopping and recreational facilities. Reignhead serves both the established Beighton community as well as the areas of new housing being developed.
The building is of a steel framed brick construction and has been designed for wheelchair access. There are seven open plan teaching bases as well as the Foundation Unit within the school. These are all equipped with inter-active whiteboards. A central hall, a dual purpose dining/teaching area, two home studies areas, a newly refurbished well stocked library, a Computer Suite and a double mobile classroom, used for specialist curriculum teaching, weekly toddler group and Family Learning Workshops.
Achieving the “Eco School Green Flag Award” demonstrates our commitment to the environment and the involvement of our children. We are currently the only school in Sheffield who has achieved this award 3 times. We are very proud of the achievement.
