At Avenue Primary Academy we recognise and develop the potential of each and every person, empowering them and giving them the confidence to play a positive role in society as responsible citizens. We aim high and believe we can succeed. We work as a team in a supportive community, where everyone is valued equally within a safe and engaging environment.
It is a real privilege to be the Head Teacher of Avenue Primary Academy; to work with inspiring and committed staff and governors, and be supported by dedicated parents and PTA. I am proud to have so many friendly, inquisitive and positive children – over 1,000 of them! Our children have positive attitudes to learning, high standards of behaviour and excellent attainment across the curriculum. We are also very lucky to have a large specialist base for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
Avenue is committed to being a Rights Respecting School and we put the Rights of the Child at the core of all that we do. We know children learn best when they feel safe and are confident in knowing themselves. We pride ourselves on challenging our children to think, question and challenge themselves, becoming life-long learners.
One of the things that makes Avenue unique is its size. We are a large school and are always trying to do our best to ensure consistency, have good communication for all and maintain a strong sense of community. To do this we work mainly in ‘Phases’ (two-year groups together) to allow the children and parents to feel like they are in a smaller school within a school.
We are proud to be an inclusive school, with pupil and staff wellbeing at the centre of everything we do and all decisions we make. We have high expectations for all our children, strive to have an engaging and interesting curriculum, develop pupils love of learning and develop their interests and talents.
At Avenue we firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school; we regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.
I hope that this website will give all the information you need about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities.
