Head Teacher's Welcome


On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I welcome you to Old Clee Primary Academy.


I am immensely proud to be Head of an 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.


I am delighted to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care.  Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.


Old Clee Primary Academy is a vibrant school where all individuals (staff and pupils) are valued and helped to achieve their personal best.  Our children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve and explore their learning and are supported in becoming confident and independent young people, who thrive on challenge, and are eager to learn. 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.


We believe that education is about the entire child, their well-being and enrichment as well as their academic achievement. Over the last couple of years, we have worked as a team to enhance the academic success, curriculum, outdoor environment and appearance of our school and there is still more to come!


I hope that you enjoy exploring our website and reading about all the wonderful things that we do here at Old Clee.  If you would like to find out more about us, please contact the school and make a convenient appointment; we will be delighted to give you a comprehensive tour where you can see for yourself what we have to offer your children.

Hope to see you soon,


Miss D Richardson
