Roundthorn Primary Academy is a popular and well respected school. We are a vibrant and inclusive community that ensures that every child is placed at the centre of every learning experience, and where we put great emphasis on achieving the highest standards possible.

We do this by offering a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum based on challenge, questioning and investigation that captures the children’s imagination, natural curiosity and desire to learn.

Our dedicated, hard-working and energetic staff provide the best education for all our children through a programme of innovative and adaptive teaching that addresses their individual needs and ensures aspirational and independent learners.

As a Rights Respecting school we aim to develop self disciplined individuals who care not only for themselves, but also for those around them and the environment as a whole. All our children are actively involved in learning that goes beyond the classroom. Forest School and outdoor learning empower our children to take risks, make informed choices , improve their self-esteem and explore the world around them .

We believe in the importance of working in partnership with parents for the benefit of our children and their futures through home learning and effective communication.

We are all excited about the future and look forward to building on our strengths, maximising opportunities for all, and enabling our community to develop a lifelong love of learning.
