I am very excited to introduce myself as the new Headteacher of Ore Village Primary Academy; a happy, vibrant school that always has children at its heart.

We are extremely lucky to have an amazing team of people supporting the development of all our pupils and helping them to be the very best that they can. Children relish a challenge and this is a perfect driver for encouraging our pupils to aim high and exceed our expectations. Very often, children are capable of far more than we can ever imagine.

Children deserve the absolute best learning experience possible. Through our innovative curriculum, we create opportunities which develop a thirst for learning and broaden the enquiring mind. We help our pupils master expertise across a number of skills, both academic and for life. We provide the freedom for our pupils to be independent, creative and resilient. We teach our pupils to be accepting of others and to celebrate diversity. We encourage our pupils to learn from their mistakes and to be proud of their achievements.

This is reflected in our school motto:   Opportunities   Resilience   Expanding Minds

At OVPA, we value the importance of developing strong links with our community. Working with our local residents, the business community, public services and voluntary services, teaches the children to become active citizens. We are extremely grateful for the partnership we have with our supportive parents and carers and welcome all feedback that will help us to continue to improve.

The staff, children and governors provide opportunities to invite  parents, carers and visitors to the school. Whether it is to celebrate the pupils’ success; share information, views and ideas; take part in supporting learning or joining us for a cup of tea and an informal chat, everyone is welcome!

I look forward to an exciting year ahead; leading a school with great potential and working with some amazing children and adults.
