On behalf of everyone at The Grange Primary Academy can I take this opportunity to thank you for taking an interest in joining us.
We are looking for outstanding and inspirational people who will make an impact on the outcomes achieved by our wonderful children.
This is an exciting time in the development of our school. I have recently taken up the position of Head Teacher and, with the support and encouragement of United Learning, have innovative plans for the future development for our school, its environment and the education our children receive.
Grange Primary Academy is a very special place in which to work and learn. We are very fortunate to have dedicated staff, who work together as a team, to ensure that our children feel safe, secure and are provided with a range of exciting and challenging opportunities to fulfil their potential in all areas of the curriculum and beyond.
We want all our staff and children to look at their time at Grange Primary Academy as one of challenge and hard work but also a time when they learnt deeply, achieved highly and became the very best they could be.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school and will be proud to show you more of what we offer and, through speaking to our children, understand why we are so pleased to be working here.
Please take the time to read through our application information, browse our website and learn more about our school. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you,
In 2013, our school was delighted to become part of United Learning, a national education charity which aspires to ensure that everyone in the organisation, children, parents, staff and community can be the very best they can be. Since then, the academy has gone from strength to strength and we were thrilled to be graded Good in all areas when we were inspected by OFSTED in March 2015.
Our journey continues as we continually reflect upon and develop a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, with strong traditional elements and underpinned by our Grange Great 8 values; as we continue to strive to provide our children with the very best educational experiences and to ensure that they are guaranteed to leave our academy successful, confident young people with high aspirations for their own futures.
Grange Primary Academy is a great school to work at. It’s challenging but we have a good atmosphere and work together as a team
