At Flintham, our aim is to enable the whole child to develop not only essential and aspirational academic skills but also life skills through our extensive and wide-ranging curriculum.
We believe children need to be able to work both independently and co-operatively to achieve a goal, whilst developing resilience and empathy. There is an emphasis on making use of the rich range of resources available to us in the local area and beyond, as we believe these first-hand experiences help to develop lively and enquiring minds and deepen understanding.
The Flintham community shop is owned and run by the local community for the local community and is manned totally by volunteers.

Who can use a defibrillator?
You don’t need to be trained to use a defibrillator – anyone can use it. There are clear instructions on how to attach the defibrillator pads. It then assesses the heart rhythm and will only instruct you to deliver a shock if it’s needed.
In a recent survey, three quarters of people said they wouldn’t feel confident enough to act if they saw someone having a cardiac arrest. With more CPR training and greater awareness, we can change that.
Where can I find a defibrillator?
Defibrillators are normally located outside
- Village Hall
- Sports and Social Association
- 15 Coneygrey Spinney
These defibrillators are known as public access defibrillators (PADs) as anyone can use them.

Rural life through the eyes of a village shopkeeper
In 1990 unsold shop stock and related paperwork were found buried beneath decades of dust in outbuildings behind the closed village shop. The find led to a community project which resulted in the opening of the Flintham Museum in May 1999.
Owned and run by volunteers, the museum was a finalist in European of the Year 2001. Since then, the volunteers have gone on to win a number of local and regional awards for innovative community projects using the museum collection combined with different aspects of village history.
Phone giants BT are offering up for “adoption” more of their iconic red phone boxes for community use – for just £1.
The Adopt A Kiosk scheme means another 3,683 of the phone boxes across England can be adopted by communities to put them to good use. Hundreds more are up for adoption in Scotland and Wales. Instantly recognisable, the classic General Post Office phone box, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, has become a symbol of Britain.
Already, more than 5,800 payphones have been adopted by communities since 2008. As mobile phone use has grown, demand for public telephone boxes has fallen with calls made from BT phone boxes having plunged by around 90% in the past decade.
Old boxes have been brought back to life by being converted into mini-libraries, miniature art museums, cake shops and information centres. One payphone in Devon was even turned into the “world’s smallest nightclub”.
Here at Flintham our telephone box has been turned into a mini lending library open 24/7 for the benefit of the community and to supplement the visits of the mobile lending library visits.
