Welcome To Yew Tree Primary Academy

Welcome to Yew Tree Primary Academy, we hope that this website will give you a flavour of the rich and varied opportunities that children at Yew Tree will experience whilst in our care.

At Yew Tree, we are committed to making the difference for all our children and young people. We are very much a school that places our children at the heart of all we do. We all feel immense pride in our achievements so far, and are confident in taking the school on an even greater and more successful journey in the future. Our aim, across both our mainstream provision and our specialist provision, is to produce well-rounded young people who are prepared for our ever-changing world. We do this by focusing on the Personal, Social and Academic aspects of education, which will drive our young people to reach their potential and achieve true excellence.

We have a reputation for providing an excellent, inclusive education, helping each child to achieve their full potential and in July 2016 achieved the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) , Centre of Excellence for the second year. The report stated:

‘This school lives and breathes inclusion, it is committed to ensuring the best possible education for all pupils regardless of ability, background, ethnicity, gender or disability.’

Our last Ofsted inspection was in December 2013, the inspection stated:

  • This is a good school
  • Pupils make good progress and achieve well across the school
  • Teaching is typically at least good, and an increasing amount is outstanding
  • Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage get off to a good start with their learning and personal development
  • In Key Stage 2 an above average proportion of pupils make expected progress
  • Pupils’ behaviour around school is good. They are friendly and polite, and treat adults and each other with respect.
  • The school has good relationships with parents, who are very supportive of the school and its leaders

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for.

If you are considering Yew Tree Primary Academy for your child, we would encourage you to contact us and come and visit the school and witness for yourself the high quality education and care that we provide to all of our pupils to ensure we achieve our school motto, ‘Excellence for All’. As stated in our recent IQM Flagship report:

‘The school continues its superb commitment to providing a highly inclusive teaching and learning environment for all pupils.’

‘A school that is clearly at the heart of its community where inclusion is a natural part of what normally happens in school, where pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential, where everyone involved is committed to the inclusion of all, whatever it takes.

‘The setting is superb providing an excellent teaching and learning environment for teachers, support staff, pupils and the local community. They have proved their expertise over the years of IQM accreditation and I believe they have the drive and capacity to be a Flagship School. I recommend, without reservation.’

We look forward to meeting you,

Mrs Rebecca O’Hanlon
