Our aim is that Bradworthy Primary Academy, by working in partnership with parents and the community, will be a happy and enriching learning environment.

We hope that by celebrating the children’s achievements, helping them fulfil  their potential, respecting their differences and encouraging kindness, consideration and respect for each other and their environment, we will foster self-esteem and provide a sound foundation for their future life.

We do our very best to offer a broad and balanced curriculum and beyond this as big a range of extra curricular activities as we can.

We hope that we are helping all of our children to develop and mature in a great range of different ways and we are sure that this will be obvious from this site, or by visiting us - which you are most welcome to do.

The fact that we are an academy rather than a school means that we are not run by the Local Education Authority and that we are funded directly by the government.
We are not a private school and the children's education is completely free in every way. In fact we use our funds to heavily subsidise, or provide freely, a huge range of experiences that most schools either don't provide at all or charge a great deal of money for. You'll see this by exploring this web-site.

As an Academy we have the freedom to work in a very independent way and this means that we are able to place our school and our work firmly within the local community. This means that we are able to run our school so that it supports the needs of local children rather than one which is forced to address national agendas which may have no relevance to us at all.

We are completely committed to making our school the very best that it can possibly be so that every child develops to their maximum potential and we believe that as an Academy we are much better placed to  do this.

The best way of finding out about our academy is to explore this web-site but if you would like to read about the things that we think are important please click here.

If you feel that our school would be an environment in which your child would flourish and you would like to think about their admission please click here
