Welcome from the Head of School


Welcome to the City Road Primary School website!

City Road Primary School is situated in the Rotton Park area of North Edgbaston, close to the Dudley Road.

We are extremely fortunate to have such an aspirational school community.  We have a warm and welcoming ethos and we aim to provide a safe and happy environment where children can thrive and enjoy their learning.

All our staff have high expectations of what can be achieved.

Our broad and balanced curriculum is creative and fun and is taught through exciting projects both inside and outside of the classroom. We regularly have visitors into school to bring learning to life. We also have a range of experts, such as music teachers and dance teachers to further enhance children’s learning.

We have a dedicated staff team, committed to developing the knowledge, skills and understanding which will enable our children to enjoy learning and achieve success.

We work closely with families to enable this to happen, as we recognise the positive contribution that a collaborative approach can achieve.

Please do get in touch with us for further information. If you are a parent/carer at the school you can request paper copies of the content on the website free of charge.

Welcome from the the Executive Headteacher


Inspire Education Community Trust is committed to ensuring excellent opportunities for our children at City Road Primary School.

We are passionate about children’s education; we strongly believe that we have the ability to transform lives and improve the life chances of our children.

Our trust is established on the principles of learning together, challenging ourselves and working with everyone in the interests of all children.

Our schools serve their own communities and each school retains its own unique identity. We are bound together by our mission to ensure a great education for our children.

Our schools work closely together to share good practice and support and challenge each other to improve further.

We want all children in our schools to enjoy a broad and balanced education, be happy and safe and well prepared for the future.

We work in partnership with our families to ensure success for our children.

We value all partners in the education of children; we collaborate with a range of organisations in Birmingham and beyond to ensure a high quality education in a very caring environment.

We look forward to a positive future for our children, and working with our families and communities in partnership.
