In our academy, all stakeholders (staff, pupils, parents and trustees) work together in partnership to ensure that:
- Our pupils have the right to learn and be listened to
- Our teachers have the right to teach and be listened to
- Our parents have the right to up to date information about how well their child is progressing
- Everyone has a right to be treated with respect
Our academy is a happy, calm and exciting place to learn, where I know that the children will continue to make us proud of their responsible, positive and caring attitudes.
Our most recent Ofsted Report (May 2016) reported that this is an outstanding school, and where children make accelerated progress.
We have high expectations of ourselves and the children in relation to behaviour, academic and creative progress and aim to offer the children a high quality, innovative and creative learning experience, delivered through excellent teaching and up to date technology.
Your child will have a supportive and secure environment in which to achieve their maximum potential. We place great emphasis on the basics, English, Maths, Science and ICT but also ensure that creativity is high on our agenda. Our dedicated teaching staff work in year group teams, to plan and deliver a relevant and exciting curriculum.
High standards of work and behaviour are expected of all who learn and work at the school. We remain committed to continuing to improve standards of achievement, not only in academic results, but also in sport, artistic pursuits, personal and social development, community involvement and attendance.
We encourage children to take responsibility for their own decisions and to recognise that they have choices. We believe that a close working partnership with parents is the key to achieving success for the children and in turn for the school and the wider community it serves.
We want your child to become fully integrated into our community as soon as possible. This brochure is intended as an introduction to our school, for you and your child. It contains all the necessary facts and information about our school, however we hope you will visit us before your child joins the school, so that you can see for yourself how the school works. I am sure that you will immediately be struck by the friendly, happy and calm atmosphere and the attractive environment.
