Principal’s Introduction

Welcome to the website for Inkersall Primary Academy.

We are a warm, friendly, happy and inclusive primary school, and pride ourselves on working together for success for each and every child.

By developing an understanding of each child’s individual strengths and development needs, we aim to create the foundations which foster a lifelong love of learning.

Our curriculum has been chosen accordingly. Our learning is designed to inspire, to build curiosity, and over time, to allow all children to fulfil their individual potential.

We believe in reading as the platform from which children can explore the world, and encourage imagination and creativity. The school’s outdoor and wild spaces are used for nature-based learning on the forest school model, while the school garden and allotment encourage children to develop green fingers.

In addition to being a school, Inkersall is a community. We develop teachers, contribute to education research, and are supported in our work by a large and thriving body of parent and community volunteers.

Together, we model the values which allow Inkersall children to go out into the world as active curious learners and citizens.
