About the school
The school is situated in an area of new development on the outskirts of Basingstoke. It is a new school, which was established in September 2001. It takes boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 11 and is projected to reach maximum capacity of an average-sized primary school in September 2005. The school has a resource unit for visually impaired pupils.
Most recent Ofsted Inspection Report: March 2003
Quotes from the Ofsted report:
Great Binfields Primary School is a good school, with some very good features.
The school accommodates a resources centre for visually impaired pupils, but the centre
was not operational at the time of the inspection.
The intention is that this should be a resource which is shared with other schools within the local authority, and that the appointed teacher should visit other schools who have visually impaired pupils on their roll.
It is also envisaged that Great Binfields should offer places to up to ten visually impaired pupils, who would receive direct support from the teacher in charge of the resources centre.
