Welcome to our Primary School

Within the primary phase at Washwood Heath Academy, we believe in creating and sustaining a positive and uplifting culture for all of our children and we also do this for each other as well. 

We are a caring and nurturing environment which aims to develop all of our core HEARTS values:   

Happiness, Excellence, Acheivement, Respect, Resilience, Tolerance and Self-Belief. 

We go above and beyond to ensure that everybody within our school community feels respected, challenged, supported and safe.  We believe in being: Ready, Respectful and Safe and we expect all visitors to our school to uphold our three rules.  We aim to equip our pupils with the right tools for them to achieve and we aim to provide them with the most effective environment that ignites curiosity and wonder.  We support our families in ensuring that they too, can provide the right environment for our children to learn effectively and to grow securely both emotionally and mentally. Together as one school, Washwood Heath Academy provides a safe and caring environment for our pupils led by highly-effective staff whose main aim is to ensure a continuing ethos of resilience and respect in learning.
