About Village Primary Academy

A Message from the Executive Principal
‘Believe, Achieve, Succeed’ is what we are all about at Village Primary Academy. We believe in every child’s potential and right to make excellent progress, through quality first teaching, motivational learning experiences and relevant, exciting curriculum. We also believe in developing the whole child, so personal & social progress and skills are developed with as much importance and rigour attached to them, as the academic areas of learning.

We want all of our pupils to achieve their full potential in terms of end of year and key stage assessments as this ensures that they are well prepared for the next phase of their education, and of course, their future life as adults.
Success comes in many forms: academic progress, social progress along with high achievement in subjects and all areas of learning.

At Village Primary Academy, we believe that even in ordinary places, extraordinary things happen! It’s our job and aim to bring that alive each day for every pupil in our academy.

We look forward to continuing this exciting journey with all of our pupils, parents and carers, staff, community members alongside the Harmony Trust. Together we know that will achieve more and more every year as a learning community.
