About Ruskin Academy

Ruskin Academy is an inclusive, caring Junior school where every child matters. We recognise that all children have talents and abilities to celebrate, and part of our role is to help children to discover these. We challenge and develop our children to become curious, autonomous learners who are inspired and stimulated through a rich and varied curriculum that is appropriate to their individual needs. We develop children’s learning skills and, by setting high expectations and exacting standards, we prepare our children to flourish, and have high self-esteem and self-belief.

We have a dedicated team of staff who are committed to being part of a school that is equipped to enable all staff and students to make outstanding progress. 
We believe that outstanding teaching and learning must be central to every decision made and every development introduced. 

Although working within the organisation of an Academy Trust, Ruskin Academy will always be a ‘community’ school. We aim to work closely with our parents, other schools and organisations, building partnerships which benefit, not only our children, but others in the wider community, both on a local, national and global level.
