Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome message from Mrs J Skinner

If your child is to join us for the first time, we welcome you as parents and look forward to a happy and successful partnership over the coming years.

If you already have a child here, we are pleased to continue working together to provide the best education possible for your child.

We believe that the Academy is at the heart of the local community and that it has a very caring, supportive, family ethos with strong links with St John’s Church. We pride ourselves on knowing and caring for our children as individuals.

As an Academy, we follow the National Curriculum and also use national schemes of work for other subjects so that we can deliver a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum for all our children.

We consistently achieve high standards and are committed to ongoing development and innovation to ensure every child reaches their potential.

We are always developing our teaching and learning approaches because we want all our children to enjoy learning and be excited by the things they do in school. We involve children in their own learning through setting targets and sending work home which complements their work in school.

We also encourage you as parents, to become involved in your child’s learning through informal and formal meetings, working in the classroom or supporting your child at home.

We very much want children to enjoy coming to school and for them to feel self confident, to have high self esteem, to show respect for others and to be able to make a worthwhile contribution to our school and wider community.

If you have any further questions, or would like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are very proud of our school and I would be pleased to show you round.
