About Outwood Primary Academy Kirkhamgate
Interim Chief Executive Officer - Lee Wilson
Principal: Mrs Lisa Cooke
We are an Outstanding rated Primary Academy based in the cathedral city of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, near Leeds.
We do whatever it takes to make learning exciting and enjoyable, while providing a high standard of education within a safe, caring and positive environment.
We want children to become successful learners and independent thinkers, with all the skills they need to succeed in secondary education, in their future careers and in their local community.
We believe our success speaks for itself as 100% of our children are making the expected progress in writing and maths, and 96% in reading.
We want you to help to take us to the next level.
To help you do that, we work hard to ensure we reduce workload on our colleagues, allowing more time in the classroom to put our vision of children first, raising standards and transforming lives into practice.
We will also actively invest in your future through working closely with the Outwood Institute of Education to offer access to a wide range of CPD opportunities, with all staff receiving a minimum of two hours’ CPD each week.
We also offer a generous employment package with a whole host of staff benefits, including a health cash plan, a cycle to work scheme, plus a partnership with car leasing company, Synergy, with offers exclusively for Outwood colleagues.
