Dear Parents and Carers

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Clifford Bridge Academy. Our school is member of the Inspire Multi-Academy Trust of three Coventry primary schools. The other schools are: 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!

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Clifford Bridge Academy’s website. I hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the quality education we strive to deliver.

Our school believes in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. We want all those who become part of our school community to feel valued, happy and respected and to recognise their role in making our school a great place to be.

We believe that all children who become pupils at our school deserve the very best, and we aim to help them succeed by reaching their potential in all areas of school life – academic, social, personal, physical and spiritual. Within our school we work very hard to create a team of people who will support each child in reaching their potential.

Our door is always open. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to visit us here at Clifford Bridge Academy. The children of Clifford Bridge very much enjoy talking about and sharing their achievements and our successes.

Best wishes

Jo Upton
Acting Co-Headteacher
