Introduction from Principal

Birstall Primary Academy is a small school, right at the heart of the community and we pride ourselves on the rapid improvements that have been made in the last few years.  Our growing reputation has meant that numbers have risen dramatically over recent years – a testament to our committed and energetic staff team and high expectations.

Children are at the heart of everything we do. From decisions about the curriculum: they have helped shape the topics they are taught and told us what they find interesting; to decisions about the effectiveness of our school: they recognised the need to support others both locally and globally through fundraising activities as they are aware of how fortunate we are in comparison to so many other people around the world. Allowing our children to have their say is fundamental to the ethos of the school and one of the reasons our children feel so happy and valued.

We are an energetic and vibrant school that places great emphasis on achieving the best possible outcomes for our children. Our care and concern for the well-being of our young learners combined with great teaching and learning is ensuring that standards continue to rise year after year. In July 2019, we performed better than many schools in our area and above national average at KS2.

We never rest on our laurels and are always trying to find ways to make learning more exciting and meaningful for the children in our care, helping every child reach their potential. We have been praised for our inclusive approach and our commitment to the individual child is evident to every visitor walking through the door.

We believe that the partnership between staff, pupils and parents is vital if education is to be a successful experience for the children. Our school is a small but friendly school and we have a fantastic and supportive staff team.

Birstall Primary Academy has been judged by OFSTED as a GOOD school (October 2018) and we welcome you to see our super school for yourself!
