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.

“At Roundthorn Primary Academy we place your child at the centre of the learning process.”

Our skilled and dedicated staff work hard to provide a wide range of educational experiences for the children in a safe and vibrant environment. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, blending the essential basic skills in literacy and numeracy, with a wider curriculum based around ‘Learning Challenges’.

Our motto is ‘Learn and Grow Together’. By working hard individually and in teams we constantly strive to achieve the best for children and families at Coppice.

Children and their futures are at the heart of our thinking and decision-making. We believe that by teaching children to work in teams, to think critically and to constantly improve we will equip them to be life-long learners and to be strong members of their communities.

Our website will give you lots of useful information and a ‘flavour’ of what we do, but a visit to the academy will tell you much more about us. I look forward to welcoming you if are able to do this.

“Learn and Grow Together.”
