Fieldhead Primary Academy

Welcome to our academy website. We hope you find it an informative and useful way to keep up with all that is happening in school.

This year at Fieldhead we are committed to the Focus Trust motto ‘Learning Together, Making a Difference’ by:

  • Rapidly improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment and in so doing improve the progress of all groups of pupils across the school.
  • Improving pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare.
  • Improving children’s achievement in the early years so that they are better equipped with the skills necessary for their learning in Year 1.
  • Improving the quality of leadership and management across the school.

To ensure that we able to further improve our academy we are delighted to have some very experienced teachers joining us:

Mrs Donna Popek is our  Vice Principal and Year 6 teacher. Mr Richard Elam joins us as Lead Practitioner and Year 4 teacher. Miss Lucy Taylor is our new Early Years Leader and Nursery teacher. Mr Kevin Lusk and Mrs Rebecca Hamill join us as Year 5 and Year 1 teachers respectively. I hope you join with me in welcoming them to Fieldhead.

We aim to give all children a well-rounded educational experience, full of quality learning opportunities and wider enrichment. We hope that our children leave Fieldhead as resilient learners and good citizens who have achieved their very best during their time here.

We welcome visits to the school and provide opportunities during the year for you to experience first-hand the learning environment that equips the children for life beyond the school gate. Please do get in touch, as we continue to improve and develop, we are keen to share this with you!
