Welcome to Old Clee Academy
On behalf of myself, the staff, governors and pupils, can I warmly welcome you to our Academy website.
Old Clee 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.
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 are working 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 their child’s learning through regular visits to the school, classrooms and through the home learning projects children bring in from home which are amazing!
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 also have an extra teacher in each year group across Year 1 to Year 6 so that rather than 30 in a class we have 22/23 - again ensuring we meet all needs.
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 ‘Celebration of Learning’ events and our ‘I am Proud’ assemblies see the children take the lead in presenting their achievements and experiences to their parents. 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.
We hope Old Clee Primary Academy enjoys a long and successful working relationship with you and your child.
Mrs T Roberts
