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.

Alongside the academic and creative learning, we want our children to be happy while with us and to develop a ‘wellbeing’ toolkit to take them on into adolescence and adulthood. 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. Through a combined skills and knowledge-rich curriculum, engaging teaching, great relationships and strong partnerships, we work hard to ensure that Yew Tree is the best possible primary school experience for every child. Our learning culture extends to all members of the school community and is based on high expectations for all.

Mrs Rebecca O'Hanlon
