Silkmore Primary Academy is an OUTSTANDING school.
Aim High, Achieve Together
Welcome to our fantastic school, Silkmore Primary Academy. We are a one form entry school that welcomes children from Nursery right through to Year 6.
We like to think of Silkmore as a family that embraces everyone in its community, from pupils and staff to governors, parents and carers. As a school, we live and breathe our school motto: Aim High, Achieve Together. This message underpins everything that we do, be that in the classroom, on the sports field or in the wider school community.
Our bespoke, creative ‘mini-mission’ curriculum enriches children’s learning experiences and ensures that a love of learning is fostered in every child, in every classroom, every day. It is delivered through a wealth of relevant, real-life problem-solving opportunities where connections are made between subjects. Our lively curriculum is designed to be varied and engaging and as a result, children are absorbed in their learning, actively seeking ways to overcome any obstacles that they meet.
Silkmore pupils are resilient: they relish a challenge and use mistakes as further opportunities to learn. They are encouraged to become independent, autonomous and confident learners who direct their own learning and who take every opportunity to ‘Aim High’.
Every member of the Silkmore team believes passionately in the importance of learning in a caring and nurturing environment so that all children develop and achieve their best as valued members of the Silkmore family. We strive to ensure that every child fulfils their potential in all areas of school life and look forward to welcoming you into our happy school.
