Learning at our Academy

It is important, especially at such a young age, that children are taught and looked after in the right way for them. Our staff support each child to be the best they can. This section of our prospectus describes what education here is like. 


Every lesson is creative

The aim of our teachers is always to deliver lessons that children enjoy and feel motivated by. We believe that all lessons should be creative, not just arts subjects. 

We want all of our pupils to be confident readers, writers and mathematicians. Our teachers make sure these areas as well as the rest of the National Curriculum are taught in ways that engage the natural sense of curiosity that children have. 

The result of this is that children become eager, confident pupils who understand the joy of learning and are prepared well for academic success. 


High standards in every classroom 

With each week, term and year being so significant in a child’s life, consistency is particularly important in their primary education. 

As part of the Harris Federation, which has its own training school for teachers, our staff receive outstanding professional development to make sure that standards are consistently high in every classroom.


Children treated as individuals

We want children to retain their individuality and be treated the right way for them. 

We step in quickly if a change is needed. For some children, this might involve one-to-one support if they are finding something difficult and for others it could mean stretching them more to keep them interested.  As an Academy parent, you would be welcome to discuss your son or daughter with us at any time. We also send reports home each term so you are kept up-to-date about your child’s learning and progress. 

We welcome children of all abilities and want them to enjoy school and thrive. For children with special needs, one of our first steps is to work with their parents and other specialists to create a plan for supporting them. Our approach as a whole is reviewed with children’s classroom teachers, relevant specialists and parents every half term. 


An academic head start 

As children progress through the school, one of our aims will be to make sure we give them a ‘head start’ for the rest of their education. 

Once they reach Years 5 and 6, they will begin to be taught by specialist subject teachers, just like in secondary school.  They will also be taken by their teachers to use specialist facilities such as science laboratories at the nearby Harris Secondary Academies.

As well as engaging them in the excitement of the subject at hand, these experiences help prepare children for a successful transition to secondary school.
