On behalf of myself, the staff, Governors and pupils, can I warmly welcome you to our Academy website.
Priorslee is a primary academy that is passionately committed to individual achievement, personal growth and the pursuit of excellence for every child. We are firmly committed to providing an inclusive education which meets the needs of all the children in our care – ensuring all can achieve the best they can, and all can shine.
Priorslee is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.
At Priorslee, we believe that children should be curious about their learning. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.
Priorslee Academy is a truly exciting place to learn. No day is ever the same and there is always something new to discover.
We believe that children’s happiness and emotional wellbeing is vital and is the foundation for children to be able to thrive and contribute to society. We aim to give children positive initial experiences of learning and relationships, which will help to make them responsible, responsive citizens who appreciate the value of community.
Our core values underpin daily life (ACORNS). We teach our children to Aspire, be Community-Minded, to always remain Optimistic, to show Respect and to Nurture ourselves, our passions and others in our school community.
We have a passionate and big-hearted staff team who work hard to provide our children with a huge range of opportunities, carefully designed to spark their interests and enthusiasm, inspire them, and enable them to realise their full potential.
We pride ourselves in our strong home/school relationships. We encourage an open-door policy, allowing parents and staff to meet whenever a need arises. We place a high value on establishing close links between home and the school so that we can effectively work together to achieve the best for your child.
We have worked hard on creating our new curriculum, in which we aim to provide a lively, creative curriculum to challenge and motivate our pupils and enable them to participate in a range of high-quality learning opportunities and experiences. We encourage parental involvement and parents certainly enjoy sharing in
The recent improvement in the school’s environment has enhanced the quality of the children’s education and we are committed to an on-going programme of refurbishment to ensure the children learn in the very best learning spaces. However, our greatest resource is our skilled and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide the best teaching and learning experience for each child. We actively seek to secure highly skilled staff to the school so that our provision is continually improving and kept up to date.
We want our pupils to enjoy coming to school and to be enthusiastic about learning. We expect high standards of behaviour from all our pupils, and we will nurture and encourage pupils and inspire them to be active participants in their own development and education. We encourage them to be responsible, thoughtful and polite, and to play an active part in all aspects of school life. Our School Council gives the children a voice where their thoughts and ideas can be expressed and put into practice.
As a school, we are fully committed to developing each child’s unique potential not only academically, but also socially, emotionally and physically. Our children are happy and enthusiastic learners, who work hard to reach the challenges set by their teachers.
We focus on making all aspects of our school a safe and secure learning environment where children feel confident to try out new skills and are encouraged to ‘have a go’ even if they find something difficult or challenging.
Our pastoral care arrangements are extensive and highly effective and enable children to feel safe and secure during every part of the school day, so that they have the confidence to achieve their full potential both academically and personally.
I hope Priorslee Academy enjoys a long and successful working relationship with you and your child.
