10 Special Facts About Our Academy

  1. We have 60 lively young minds in each of our primary year groups with 52 children in our nursery
  2. In work and in play, our children are encouraged towards traditional values: good manners and behaviour, enthusiasm and recognising right from wrong.
  3. The specialism at our academy is Literacy, which we chose because we believe that learning to read, write and communicate effectively is extremely important.
  4. All of our pupils  have a reading lesson every single day – this is so that they can read fluently by the time they are age 7.
  5. Reports are sent home very regularly, every 6 weeks, so that parents know how their children are doing and how they can help them to develop and improve.
  6. We want all of our children to be able to ‘hit the ground running’ when they change school at age 11  - that is why we bring in subject specialists in Years 5 and 6.
  7. For the most academically able children, we begin introducing the secondary curriculum early.  
  8. Creativity and fun are important aspects of the way we do things at the academy – our arts education programme (music, drama, dance and visual art) supports this aspect of learning.
  9. Our children are very talented.  Our extracurricular programme is packed full of music clubs, dance clubs, drama clubs, writing clubs and sports activities.
  10. Children can be dropped at the Academy as early as 7.45am for Breakfast Club
