Welcome to Boothroyd Primary Academy
I am really pleased to welcome you to our academy website- thank you for visiting! We hope our website gives you a flavour of our school but to feel and breathe it you need to come and visit! You are welcome at any time but if you ring and make an appointment we can make sure someone is there to answer your questions and show you around.
We like to think we are a growing school- in more ways than one!
We are growing in numbers each year: we currently have over 630 pupils from Nursery to Year 6- with numbers rising every year!
Our curriculum is growing: we have introduced a new extended curriculum based on four strands of learning: lifeskills, workplace skills, outdoor and forest skills and physical and mental well being. We also have over 30 after school clubs so children are never bored! The cildren love our chickens,goats and rabbits, our pastoral cats Piper and Henry and our therapy dog Hugo. We have also increased our subsidised trips for children to three per year and developed more learning areas within school such as our zen garden and read and relax areas.
Our skills are growing- we increased the number of children making good progress last year through effective teaching and a focus on basic skills and our national statutory test data has improved for the past three years- our progress is now above National.
Our partnership schools are growing: we are proud to be part of the Focus Multi Academy Trust and wholeheartedly support and contribute to their vision – learning together, making the difference.
We were one of the first schools in Yorkshire to have been awarded the mental health for schools award and Inclusion in schools award and have excellent provision such as our play therapy room, sensory room and well being resource centre for our children. Our whole ethos is about providing a therapeutic environment for our children and we gained the therapeutic schools award last year.
Quite simply- we are proud of our academy and the children and staff within it. Boothroyd Primary Academy is an excellent place to learn- we know because children, staff and visitors tell us it is!
It makes my day to show people round our fabulous school so drop in anytime!
