Mountfield is a  foundation primary school for boys and girls aged 3-11 years. It was built in 1956 and  is situated on the corner of Halewood Avenue and Kirkwood Drive, North Kenton.  The school buildings are spacious and bright.

The school has links with schools in China and USA  and has obtained an International School Status award.  It also has accreditation from the Investing in Children scheme.

We are a lively and forward looking school with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and  enthusiastic and motivated staff. We encourage all staff, parents/carers and children to work together as a team, with both open and individual discussions welcoming new ideas.  Pupils are encouraged to reach their personal best in Literacy and Numeracy, to have a positive attitude, be able to work independently and have a good set of morals and a desire to learn. The school incorporates lots of creative activities with children able to express themselves through drama and other such mediums.

We are committed to developing positive attitudes among pupils with children and staff treating each other politely and with respect. Children are encouraged to listen to each other and value the opinions of others, being open to new ideas and having the confidence  to express their own opinions. 

At Mountfield we believe that every child is unique with a right to an excellent education. By placing great emphasis on nurturing and caring it enables each child to see their potential and reach their highest goals.

Our school motto is 'Learn together, have fun together'
