About Anglesey Primary Academy
Anglesey Primary Academy is an exciting and vibrant place to work that is forward thinking with dedicated, hardworking staff who are committed to serving a culturally and linguistically diverse community. The Academy was graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in January 2016. We are a large 3 form entry Primary Academy with 583 pupils. Approximately 81% of children are bilingual or multilingual and there are 27 different languages spoken within the Academy. We have children from many diverse backgrounds, speaking a number of different languages. As an academy we celebrate this diversity. Our specialist EAL team are trained in our main languages and support children, parents and staff, as well as assessing children in their first language. They also ensure that all children develop their grasp of English as a language as quickly as possible.
Our academy is well equipped with appropriate resources to support all our children and their diverse cultural and religious experiences and backgrounds are reflected in the curriculum and activities that the academy organises.
Our Vision and Values
At Anglesey Primary Academy we constantly endeavour to create a welcoming, secure and stable environment. Only then can we successfully achieve our aims and help the children reach their full potential.
Anglesey is AIMING HIGH
AMBITION - Reaching our dreams ATTITUDE - Being responsible ACHIEVEMENT - Doing our best ACTION - Making it happen.
Our aims are to:
- To encourage active partnership between home, school and the community and their participation in all aspects of school life.
- To raise standards and achievement through high expectations.
- To offer equal opportunities to all children and staff regardless of gender, religion, race or any other special needs.
- To provide, through the statutory requirements, a wide range of broadly based experiences appropriate to individual needs so as to enable every child to realise his or her potential.
Our curriculum reflects the attitudes, values and respect that we have for all ethnic groups that make up the diverse community of our academy. So, for example, the history curriculum gives due emphasis to ancient African traditions and cultures in the work that the children do on the Ancient Egyptians. In the religious education curriculum topics focus on religious festivals, the children study the importance of Diwali to Hindus and Vaisakhi to Sikhs. We also celebrate Eid, Diwali, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Easter and Harvest through a range of phase assemblies and topics that are researched and produced by different year groups. Teachers often celebrate other religious festivals if they have a child in their class from a particular religious background
As an academy we constantly review the curriculum and insure that it reflects the needs of our community and our children.
