It is my pleasure to welcome you to Clifford Bridge Academy. Our school is member of the Inspire Multi-Academy Trust of five primary schools. The other schools are: Hearsall community Academy, Stockingford Academy, Academy, Walsgrave CE Academy and Whittle Academy

Clifford Bridge primary school is a popular primary school with a village like feel in a popular residential location. The school was lucky enough to have a new build and refurbishment in 2013 as it grew from a one to two form entry school.

We are all positive about the autonomy and independence that comes with our schools being a group of academies working together. The schools are accountable to a ‘Board of Directors’ and the ‘Local Governing Body’.

At Inspire Education Trust we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our children. They are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to inspire all learners and we want all our schools to be the best they can be and for each child to discover the skills, abilities, talents and interests that lie within them.

The schools have a desire to question, change and innovate to ensure that what they provide enables our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We believe in working in partnership, enabling us to ensure all children to achieve their full potential. Our schools know the impact that working collaboratively can bring.

At the same time, we recognise the importance for each school to retain and promote their individual identity. Every school has its own context and challenges. This is why we encourage our member schools to lead and manage in a way that preserves that individual identity and responds to the specific needs of their children and community.

The combination of autonomy and collaboration across key areas of leadership and management, underpinned by shared vision, values and best practice is what makes our schools special.

We want to work in partnership with parents and carers and will provide regular opportunities for you to come into school. We have an open door policy and all problems and concerns will be promptly dealt with.

I hope to see your children regularly when I am in school to share and celebrate with them their hard work, efforts and achievements and I look forward to seeing you in the near future!

I would like to warmly welcome you to our school website. We are a vibrant and happy two-form entry school, with a two-year old provision as well as a wraparound facility. We were graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in October 2019, with three of the five areas being graded as ‘Outstanding’. The report stated, “Pupils at Clifford Bridge Academy love to learn and teachers expect the best…Pupils are a credit to the school and are excellent ambassadors. They are right to be proud of their school. Parents say that Clifford Bridge is a very special place.”

As part of the Inspire Education Trust, we work in close partnership with Walsgrave CE Academy, Whittle Academy, Hearsall Community Academy, Stockingford Academy and Blue Coat C of E Academy. The links between the schools are both stimulating and supportive, enabling us to share best practice though collaborative working.

You will find our Clifford Bridge family warm and welcoming as our children, parents, carers, staff and friends of our school are at the heart of everything we do. We are passionate about every child reaching for the stars; shining brightly in their individual talents and working hard to achieve their hopes and dreams. As their teachers, we promise to guide them on their journey, and to always take decisions that have them at the core.

Our exciting, ambitious curriculum is relevant and memorable as we develop children’s knowledge and skills across a broad and balanced range of subjects. Our academy values are the golden thread woven throughout all we do where we foster curiosity, integrity, joy, kindness, nurture and resilience.

I encourage you to come and see Clifford Bridge Academy to help you to get the ‘feel’ of our school so please get in touch.
