Information about the school

Working for Langley Park Primary Academy: ​​​​​​Langley Park Primary Academy is a unique academy with pupils from Nursery to Year 6 with an onsite Specialist Resource Provision for children with a primary need of ASD. This exciting provision demonstrates the academy’s sense of ambition to serve the community where pupils’ educational journey is so important. Being part of a provision that caters for such a wide range of age groups and needs means that there are copious opportunities for both children and staff to extend their experiences to grow and develop in many different ways. To enrich our curriculum, we take advantage of the resources and subject specific expertise we have in abundance in our academy. This means our pupils benefit from subjects like PE and Forest School being taught by specialists. There are also plenty of opportunities for colleagues to collaborate across all age ranges and roles to ensure that we are developing our pupils into well-rounded life long learners who are well equipped to contribute to society throughout their lives. In addition to this, the pupils and staff have access to resources that are unique to our provision. These include; a DT lab (including cookers and other various equipment), a sensory room, a forest school, sports facilities and a well stocked library.

We are delighted to announce that following our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2019 the hard work and dedication of the academy was recognised and was judged as 'Good' with 'Outstanding' features in for our early years provision, personal development, behaviour and welfare and effectiveness of leadership and management.

Our Values: - Exploration - Resilience - Individuality - Self-Belief - Independence

"Opened in September 2016, Langley Park has grown in so many ways and is the hub of this new community. We believe in, and celebrate, achievement and success in all areas of the curriculum. We want our children to learn within a culture of curiosity, enjoyment and positive approaches to new experiences and skills to enable them to become successful learners. Through enrichment opportunities, we aim to explore the creative arts and PE as often as possible in the academy day; building on existing strengths as well as helping children develop new skills.

With our strapline in mind; “excellence through learning, learning through excellence”, we ensure that the children are at the very heart of all that we do and we will not settle for anything short of excellence. Regardless of a child’s need, context or beginnings, we are absolutely committed for each child to be the best version of themselves and this is done through establishing supportive partnerships with all stakeholders; staff, parents and governors where we are all on the same team; the child’s team." - Principal Sally Brading
