About Langer Primary Academy
Langer Primary Academy is a small primary school with big ambition. We provide places for pupils from Reception to Year 6 arranged in three Key Stages, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We, at Langer Primary Academy, firmly believe that children only get one chance at a quality education and are, therefore, a school that is committed to raising standards for children in all areas of school life. We promise you that we will do our best to ensure that your children receive the best whilst they are with us.
Langer Primary Academy is a mere stones-throw from the sea front, situated in attractive grounds with a large playing field, which includes climbing apparatus for the children to play on, and dedicated space for children in the Reception class to use. We also have a wildlife area for use in our science lessons.
The school celebrated its centenary in September 2012 and has 7 classes. We have a main hall; a purpose built Early Years setting for Reception; a library; an ICT suite; a Nurture room; activity areas and administrative offices. There is disabled access to the building. There are currently 164 children on roll, meaning that the academy is large enough to offer a range of exciting opportunities for the children, but small enough for the staff to get to know the children and their individual needs very well.
At Langer we have high expectations and provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum. In addition to the acquisition of skills, knowledge and understanding, importance is placed on developing the child as an individual, capable of independent learning and self-discipline. We pride ourselves on our positive, friendly atmosphere and caring attitude. The whole school works together to create a positive environment and a sense of community.
Being part of Academies Enterprise Trust has enabled us to work closely with our ‘Essex and Suffolk’ Cluster’ of primaries all of which have been judged to be at least ‘good’ by Ofsted. The Trust provides a high degree of support and expertise to the whole school community and we enjoy significant partnerships with other primary and secondary academies across the school network.
We are proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust.
