Welcome to Engaines Primary School

At Engaines we believe that every child can achieve and it is our duty to ensure that they achieve their very best. It may be they have academic ability, which we will encourage them to develop or sporting ability, which they will get every chance to develop or music, art, drama, singing. Whatever their talent, we will do our best to identify it and encourage the children to reach the highest standard they can in that area.
