Message from the Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is with very great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to you from Sneyd Academy. This is a large and diverse primary academy with happy children and staff and an exciting curriculum. Our aim is to enthuse our children to ‘Learn, Achieve, Believe’ in all that they do.
Our school is based on positive relationships. This is crucial to the development of every child in our school family. We ensure that children are shown compassion, understanding and care whilst also providing the very best teaching possible. We have excellent behaviour within the Academy and this is supported by Ofsted and other external visitors. All that we do is centred on the children and what would benefit each and every individual. As a result, our children enjoy school and make good progress academically, but also socially, morally and spiritually.
We have a highly skilled team of staff trained to get the best from our children. Every child is seen as a unique member of our school family and staff are skilled in personalising learning to ensure that it meets the needs of all children. Learning is fun and creative and provides a wealth of opportunities to inspire children to be the best that they can be. We aim for children to become confident independent learners to support them through secondary education and beyond.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum as well as excellence in maths and English. We bring in expertise for pupils in music and PE and achieve well in these subjects. Our extra curricular provision is exciting and wide ranging, with children able to join a number of clubs during the school day and beyond. Topics are supported by a list of visits and visitors to enhance classroom learning. Additionally, children have the opportunity of three residential visits; London in Y4, Stanley Head in Y6 and France in Y5 or Y6.
Staff at Sneyd Academy have the highest of expectations for ourselves, for each other, and for our children. This begins with children feeling safe, secure and happy and we pride ourselves on the environment that we create to allow our children to flourish. We foster a love of learning that should stay with children for the rest of their lives.
We hope that you enjoy looking at our website and seeing what Sneyd Academy can offer your child.
