The Arbours Primary Academy

Our outstanding school has over 390 children and we are continually improving and developing what we offer to our pupils as one of the best primaries in the area.


Our school family includes three key stages: Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Classes are taught in a combination of whole class teaching, small group, paired and individual approaches.

We carefully adapt our teaching so that pupils can access the curriculum and we have developed a range of techniques and strategies to ensure this.

All classes are equipped with computers and interactive whiteboards, these are used to enhance and enrich the curriculum. 

Our classes for the academic year 2023/2024 are as follows:
