About Morice Town Primary Academy

School Background: Morice Town Primary Academy is friendly primary school situated in Devonport. The school has a strong, committed team of teachers and teaching assistants striving to provide our children with a rich and diverse curriculum developing our five learning dispositions of being resourceful, open, aspirational, resilient and reflective learners. We aim for all our pupils to leave us with the skills and knowledge to know ‘who we are and where we are in the world.’ 

At Morice Town we enable children to develop safe and healthy lifestyles, commitment and a sense of responsibility, and knowledge and understanding that will enable them to succeed in life. Our aim is to send young people out into the wider world who are caring, competent, worthy of respect and who see learning as an adventure. The Academy has a PAN of 210. 

Trust Background:  Reach South is a young and developing Trust which operates across the South West of England with the aim of delivering all through 3-19 education.  We operate 14 academies in Plymouth, Bournemouth, Dorset and Wiltshire.  We are building this Trust on a clear set of values, behaviours and curriculum principles. At the heart of those values and principles is a belief in our young people and a determination to support them to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become the successful citizens for today and all of their tomorrows. 

Our core business is delivering exceptional education for children and young people with a mission to help all pupils aspire to achieve beyond the expectations that others put on them.  We do this through the development of a talented and committed workforce. In order to deliver exceptional opportunities for learning, we need highly motivated staff across all parts of the organisation.   Teachers within Reach South belong to a national community of professionals, and benefit from a wide range of networks and development opportunities across the Trust. In time, our best teachers are able to work across schools, develop specialisms and step up to leadership roles within and beyond their own academy. The Trust provides a strong culture of collaboration and support, together with high expectations for staff and pupils alike.  Those we recruit are able to demonstrate that they share our values, are highly motivated to work with colleagues, within and beyond their school, to continuously develop their skills and pursue professional excellence.
