Welcome to our Academy!

Year 6 children enjoyed eating lunch with their parent's. 

Here's a selection of the tasty food served to children and staff from our new school kitchen.

If you would like your child to enjoy our school dinners, please see a member of the office team.

A Message from the Principal

Welcome to Kings Rise Academy, a school where the pupils are at the heart of all we do and all the staff are committed to meeting the needs of every child.  We have high expectations of our pupils, taking pupils from the years of 3-11 (Nursery to Year 6) on a journey, preparing them for their next steps in learning and life.  We encourage each child to believe that they can achieve success, develop a lifelong love of learning, be independent, confident and have a healthy respect for themselves and others.

We have a well-planned curriculum that focuses on the structured development of basic skills within a broad and balanced thematic programme. Learning is meaningful and enjoyable through activities that are tailored to meet the needs of all our pupils, with lots of additional enrichment opportunities.

We firmly believe the education of each child is best achieved through a close partnership with parents and carers.  We aim to make parents feel welcome in school and update them regularly through weekly newsletters, curriculum workshops, parents’ evenings and celebration events.  A close partnership between parents and school, we believe, is fundamental for achieving the best education for all pupils.

OFSTED, July 2014 judged our school to be outstanding.  The pupils, staff, parents and community are extremely proud of this recognition. Safety, behaviour, teaching, learning and leadership remain prioritised for ensuring our high standards are constantly challenged.  Visitors to school are always complimentary on our pupils’ behaviour, good manners and attitude towards both learning and developing themselves.

The staff and I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Kings Rise Academy, where we hope we will build a strong partnership and develop together caring, responsible young people, proud of their school, achievements, community and environment.

Mrs L. Noonan
