Goosewell Primary Academy is a lively and vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities.
The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities provided for them, are relevant to their needs both now and in their futures.
At Goosewell, we believe that children should be curious about the world around them. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential. We believe that providing opportunities for children to develop characteristics for effective learning and life should be at the heart of everything we do.
The school has an experienced and dedicated team that strives to reach high standards in everything we do, and this becomes further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community, and the other schools in the Reach South Academy Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school, creating a learning family where we value you as an active partner in your child's education offering vital interest and support.

Within the limitations of staffing, class sizes are kept to a minimum in order that teachers may provide work suited to children of all levels of ability and attainment.
Steps are taken to identify and provide for the exceptionally bright, the slow learner and the child with specific developmental problems. Some individual and small group teaching is given in addition when needed and resources are available.
A senior member of staff has oversight and responsibility for advising staff and parents when children's development is identified as causing concern or support is requested.
In very special circumstances, a child will have such severe problems that he/she will require an 'Educational Health Care Plan' (EHC). This is a legal document and requires the local authority to provide help if resources are available. The process involved in acquiring an EHC plan is very lengthy and is applicable to very few children. If you think your child needs an EHC plan, you should contact the classroom teacher and/or the Head teacher for advice.
At all times, parents' co-operation and involvement in their child's development is valued and considered essential if children are to realise their potential.
