Information about the School
Welcome to Longwood Primary Academy and Nursery – a school that provides children with an inspirational learning experience.
Since opening in January 2015, we have developed a thriving, successful community where children’s voices are heard and their interests nurtured. We are proud of our academic results and our achievements. The challenging curriculum we provide for all pupils is unique and, as you will see, something that builds lifelong character and resilience – in preparation for the workplace.
The recent Ofsted inspection verified that we are a Good School with Outstanding ‘Leadership and Management’ AND ‘Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare’. They reported the following in November 2017:
"The quality of teaching has improved markedly and the quality of care and contribution to pupils’ well-being is excellent."
"Parents are remarkably positive about all aspects of the school and very nearly all would recommend it. The reputation of the school has risen and, as a result, pupil numbers are increasing."
"The school’s work to provide care and support to enable pupils to flourish is exemplary."
"There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities at the beginning and end of the school day, contributing to the school’s ‘the mind, body and soul experience’."

Our building, constantly evolving like our learners, provides an exceptional learning environment. Our pupils, taking pride in all they do and displaying excellent behaviour and attitudes to their learning, are a credit to our outstanding and committed staff.
I am proud of the school and the consistent efforts and initiative used to provide the very best opportunities for the children of our school.
