Message from the Headteacher

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our children, parents, extended families and visitors to our Academy Website, and hope that you find the information informative and enjoyable to view.

Plumberow Primary Academy is a very large 3 form Academy with approximately 650 pupils on roll. We have facilities that we are proud of, including two halls, a spacious ICT suite, a large field, a designated cooking room, a well maintained library and an outdoor swimming pool. Teaching areas are both safe and well maintained, providing a stimulating working environment for the pupils.

The teachers and support staff form a very strong team and work closely with the Governing Body and The Academies Enterprise Trust to promote high standards throughout Plumberow. Parental involvement is largely encouraged through a well established induction policy for new entrants, weekly surgeries and an open door policy. A large number of parents provide invaluable voluntary support in classes throughout the academy and there is a well established PTA, which provides a programme of fundraising activities throughout the year.

The academy teaches a broad and balanced curriculum which is enriched by a wide range of extra curricular activities. There is a very strong emphasis on sport and music within the academy and academy teams compete very successfully in a wide range of inter-school sports activities.

Ian Barton, Headteacher
