Welcome to Yarlside Academy’s Website. This website has been designed to provide you with the information that we think you would like as pupils, parents and visitors. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It has been designed to give you a flavour of the aspirational and inspiring life of our school, as well as the outstanding quality of education we strive to deliver.
Our school meals are cooked on site in our own school kitchen. All meals are prepared using fresh and local produce.
On behalf of the children, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to Yarlside Academy. I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Yarlside, a role that I have held for 13 years. I take great pride in the continued drive and passion that the whole school team strive for, in delivering high standards of achievement and the very best education for all of our pupils.
Whilst it is my priority that the education your child receives will enable them to achieve their academic potential and prepare them confidently for the next phase of their education, it is also my belief that our children should be provided with a wealth of positive experiences whilst in our care. Our excellent resources and facilities support our ambitious curriculum, whilst also providing opportunities through a variety of extra-curricular activities, visits and activities. We want our children to be aware of and prepared for the endless possibilities that await them. Underpinning the above, is my relentless commitment to ensuring that the children possess the values that enable them to live well in society and prepare them to deal effectively with the challenges that the modern world presents.
All of the staff and Governors share this vision and recognise children as being unique with individual talents and needs. We work tirelessly to provide an engaging curriculum and a positive school experience. You’ll find all areas of our school to be thriving areas of activity with children fully engaged in their learning, making this a special place for children. Visitors to our school often comment on the positive, vibrant working environment and the excellent behaviour of our children.
Whilst the website provides a wealth of information it is no substitute for a tour of the school where you can see us at work. Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit – we would love to show you around!
Mrs J Pierce
