The Arbours Primary Academy

We have over 390 children and we are continually improving and developing what we offer our pupils in our drive to become one of the best primaries in the area.

Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the children, parents, staff and Trust I would like to thank you for taking the opportunity to learn more about our Academy.

We are a large vibrant school which delivers a world-class education for all our pupils.

Our high-quality teaching ensures that our children are achieving academic excellence.  Our pupils experience an exciting curriculum and are provided with many opportunities to learn in different ways. We provide a range of enrichment opportunities for all children in order to broaden their experiences and to build their aspirations.

Our children benefit from curriculum enrichment through visits, visitors and ‘WOW’ events such as whole school poetry days, art days and film making projects.   All our staff work collaboratively to ensure that children are taught well and are able to demonstrate our values of aspiration, ambition, courage and respect.

Our aim is that all the children who come to The Arbours Primary Academy are happy and successful. We recognise that each child is unique and that developing their talents and abilities as well as their self-esteem is the best way to prepare children for success in the future.

We received a  'Good' OFSTED  grade following an Inspection in September 2017

'The school is a vibrant and enjoyable place to be. Pupils are well behaved and are caring towards each other. They are proud of their school and work their hardest. They have a clear understanding of how to stay safe.'

Mrs A Watts
