Welcome by the Head of School
Welcome to Longwood Primary Academy and Nursery – a school that provides children with an inspirational learning experience.
Since opening in January 2015, we have developed a thriving, successful community where children’s voices are heard and their interests nurtured. We are proud of our academic results and our achievements. The challenging curriculum we provide for all pupils is unique and, as you will see, something that builds lifelong character and resilience – in preparation for the workplace.
The recent Ofsted inspection verified that we are a Good School with outstanding ‘Leadership and Management’ AND ‘Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare’. They reported the following in November 2017:
“The quality of teaching has improved markedly and the quality of care and contribution to pupils’ well-being is excellent.”
“Parents are remarkably positive about all aspects of the school and very nearly all would recommend it. The reputation of the school has risen and, as a result, pupil numbers are increasing.”
“The school’s work to provide care and support to enable pupils to flourish is exemplary.”
“There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities at the beginning and end of the school day, contributing to the school’s ‘the mind, body and soul experience’.”
“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.”
“The school strongly promotes pupils’ physical well-being. Pupils understand how to stay healthy.”
Our building, constantly evolving like our learners, provides an exceptional learning environment. Our pupils, taking pride in all they do and displaying excellent behaviour and attitudes to their learning, are a credit to our outstanding and committed staff.
I am proud of the school and the consistent efforts and initiative used to provide the very best opportunities for the children of our school. Our 50 things at Longwood is designed to give your child not only an education to scaffold their future but experiences that shape them as a strong person, belonging to something special.
Our wellbeing system, coupled with high quality teaching in pursuit of academic excellence, provides children with a place in which they can thrive as individuals – feeling safe and secure.
We know that providing a child with the building blocks very early on is fundamental to their success. Our outstanding Early Years facilities are designed to ensure the best possible outcomes before starting Year 1.
Visits to the school are encouraged – our door is always open. I look forward to meeting you and working with you, together enabling your child to look towards bright future.
