Aspire, Persevere, Achieve


Welcome to Aerodrome Primary Academy; a vibrant and exciting learning community. 


We are so pleased that you are taking an active interest in our school and encourage you to read further and to book a visit to come and see our vision in practice! 


At Aerodrome Primary we strive relentlessly to ensure that all our children enjoy a stimulating and diverse education, are fully active in their learning and achieve to the very best of their ability.  


High standards are the main priority for the staff and children at Aerodrome primary. We aim for high standards in everything; learning, behaviour, attitudes and commitment. 


Independence is a key skill that we aim to foster in all our learners at Aerodrome. Our personalised curriculum ‘Contexts for Learning’ allows both teachers and children alike to identify and develop their interests within and beyond the parameters of the National Curriculum and to take an active role in developing their own learning journeys.


Children are encouraged to share their ideas and opinions both in the classroom and within 
the wider school context. Children in the Early Years and beyond are taught and encouraged to make positive behaviour and learning choices that enable them to flourish. 

We aim to develop a learning community where children respect each other and take responsibility for their own behaviour and achievement. Our whole school ethos is based on understanding and modelling the values that are essential to developing a harmonious and cohesive learning community.


Developing excellent home school partnerships is a first priority when children join our school. We encourage regular contact between class teachers and parents and will happily meet with parents both informally and by appointment to ensure we develop positive relationships that fully support the children in our care. We have a home school agreement developed by parents and staff together. We request that all parents and carers sign 
up to this important contract. 

Our curriculum is enriched by learning beyond the classroom and the children have many opportunities to enjoy school visits and we welcome visitors into our school. Outdoor learning and a wide range of extracurricular clubs also enhance the learning experience for all our children. 


We really value working in partnerships and have developed an active and powerful partnership with ReACH2 working with and contributing to the development of schools with a focus on learning from each other. 


We'd love to welcome you to our school so you can see all of this in practice.  Visits are encouraged, please drop us a line if you'd like to come and meet us.
