Welcome


Welcome from the Principal
 
Linden Road Academy is a successful, thriving and happy school. We are a school with a strong, rich community of students, parents and teachers brought together by a shared determination to achieve outstanding status and becoming an exceptional school. At the heart of this drive for excellence is our belief that every child is an individual who can grow and excel; inclusion and equality are the heartwood of all we do. We are fully accessible for disabled users.

Our ethos is one of high expectations and mutual respect where each pupil knows they are valued and well cared for. 

We are proud to be part of the Enquire Learning Trust, becoming an academy in March 2014.

I, the leadership team, staff, Governors, parents and students share a passionate commitment in ensuring that the school makes a huge difference to children's lives. We have the highest aspirations and expectations of all we do whether this is academic attainment, achievement, behaviour or learning. We all continually strive to improve every aspect of our work, as a result we ask more of ourselves and more of our parents and students. We are dedicated to ensuring all our students succeed; challenging and developing their ability to think independently and enabling them to transfer their learning to real situations. We want children to be  ready for the next stage of their lives and beyond.

Our curriculum provides rich and diverse opportunities which maximise children's love of learning and provides them with links to real life and their own interests. We are fortunate that our curriculum is enhanced by our exciting outdoor environment with a woodland, pond, mini allotment, planters and chicken coop. We firmly believe that every lesson counts and no opportunity for learning should be lost. Our curriculum is creatively designed to enhance English and mathematical skills, as well as to develop children’s teamwork, collaboration and independent learning skills.

At Linden Road we continually look to build upon on the successes we have already achieved to make it the best possible school for the community which it serves.

Whilst the academy does not yet have an official Ofsted rating, our own thorough self-evaluation and external validation celebrates our success, we firmly believe that when we are inspected then we will be graded as outstanding.

Our website provides all the information you will need to learn about life at Linden Road, our achievements, standards, community involvement, curriculum and the many experiences and opportunities we provide for our children.
