Reynolds Academy is a larger than average sized primary school which caters for children between the ages of 3 and 11. We have a dedicated and highly motivated staff who work extremely hard and have high expectations for all of our children. Each year group team is composed of at least two Teachers, supported by Teaching Assistants.
The Senior Leadership team consists of the Principal, Rebecca Scott and the Vice Principal, Lisa Waring, who is also the SENDCO and Designated Safeguarding Officer and Key Stage One Lead. In addition, there is Assistant Principal, Gareth Cookson who is the Deputy Designated Safeguarding Officer and Key Stage Two Lead. We also have Assistant Principal Helen Rushworth, who has responsibility for Early Years.
The staff at the academy have an excellent understanding of how children learn and what learning should look like for each individual child. We use regular assessment and knowledge of the children to plan carefully for each lesson, group and individual. Those children who are high ability and have a particular gift for a subject will be supported to further develop their talents; and those children with specific needs will have dedicated support and a curriculum designed to meet their requirements.
Throughout the year, there will be a wealth of opportunities for us to liaise and work together through letters, events, assemblies, homework, shared learning afternoons, parental workshops and meetings. Last year, we also started using social media outlets to celebrate the achievements of our children.
