Welcome to Brampton Primary Academy

I am delighted to be working at the school. The staff and I are committed to working extremely hard to provide a safe, caring, happy and stimulating environment for your child to learn in. We aim to provide an environment in which all children can thrive through a wide variety of experiences.

We believe education is a partnership between school, staff, parents and carers and of course our pupils. High quality, effective education takes place through home and school working together and in this way we are far more likely to succeed in producing happy and successful learners, who are socially well-adjusted and proud of their achievements.

Parental contribution is vital and we value your input. We therefore welcome your views and involvement in the life of our school and we look forward to a happy and rewarding relationship with you and your child throughout their time with us. We sincerely hope that your child feels that they are a respected and successful member of our school community and that you will support us in all of our efforts to ensure that your child receives a first class education. We are always striving to do better for our children and are ensuring we keep our practices under review. I would like to thank those of you who have attended our parent meetings before Christmas and our workshops this term. 

Communication bewtween us is vital. We hope that the website will provide you with most of the information you need to know about the school. If anything seems unclear, please do not hesitate to either make an appointment or pop into school and discuss any concerns or suggestions. 

Very best wishes,

James Kenyon

New Assessment Arrangements...

As you will probably already be aware, the DfE (Department for Education) have decided to remove the nationwide system of assessing children using levels. As a school we understand that you may have concerns over how your child’s progress is now assessed. Please click here to read what we are doing as a school to assess your child's progress.

All classrooms across the school will be open from 1.45pm-3pm. If you are attending you will also be able to take your child home at 3pm. All other children will finish at the usual time.
