Welcome to Jewell Academy

Jewell Academy is an ‘Outstanding’ school.

Thank you for considering Jewell Academy for the next step in your professional journey. Jewell Academy is a primary school with 420 children and our own pre-school. Jewell Academy opened in September 2013 with just two Reception classes and one Year 1 class. We are now a full school and are about to see our first children move on to secondary school. We are two form entry, mixed ability and gender academy.  The facilities at Jewell Academy are fantastic, including a studio hall for PE and Dance, 2 multi-use games areas, a large school field, allotment, kitchen classroom, designated Early Years unit and a school kitchen which cooks our hot meals freshly on site.

We believe that every child is a Jewel; unique and special. We value each child as an individual, listening to their aspirations and celebrating each step that takes them closer to their goal. This enables them to reach their fullest potential. Children come to us with different starting points and experiences and it is important to acknowledge this. Every child needs to know they are unique and special, and we work hard to ensure a sense of belonging is established from a child’s first day. This is also the case for our team.

The key to ensuring children become lifelong learners, is ensuring the curriculum is fun, exciting and relevant. Our Early Years develop these skills using the characteristics of effective learning. This continues as the children move into Year One and begin to access the National Curriculum. Literacy and Numeracy skills are essential to enable children to access the world around them. In a world that is always changing, we ensure children develop their problem-solving skills and resilience through open-ended tasks, where they are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them. In addition, our three school rules, “Safe, Ready and Respect” ensure children are Safe in all they do, Respectful to all and Ready for anything, not only at school, but in life.

We are looking for an outstanding LSA to support in our Year One class.

Excellent further professional development is offered by Jewell Academy, supported by the innovative and unique Aspirations training programmes. You will join a school that enables all pupils to access a broad and balanced ‘No Limits’ curriculum and develops their abilities and personalities, irrespective of race, gender, ethnic origin or disability.

Visits to our academy are welcomed and encouraged and we look forward to meeting you. Please contact the school office (details below) to arrange a suitable time. 

Best wishes,

Mrs L Head
