Primary Link Developments

We are proud of our ever-developing partnership with the All Saints Academy Trust, working closely with St Thomas CE Academy and St John & St Peter’s CE Academy.

This week has been a busy one for the staff and students of the three schools with partnership planning meetings, science workshops, and parent welcome meetings.

Miss Slater and Mr Lassetter, Executive Head of All Saints Academy Trust, believe the partnership is crucial in improving the transition from primary to secondary, enabling our students to settle quickly. Last year City Academy provided sports leaders for events and ran PE lessons for primary pupils but this year, a much more extensive programme is planned.

Both headteachers believe in the power of sharing resources. City Academy staff will lead specialist science, art, dance and PE lessons throughout the year, whilst All Saints Academy Trust staff will be supporting our developments of a thematic key stage 3 curriculum based on a successful model in their own schools. City Academy has also made specialist classrooms available for use by the primary schools.

The appointment of Miss Holness as our Primary Partnerships Leader has been vital in developing this work. Having supported St Thomas Academy with their end of year show, Miss Holness is known by many of the students for her infectious enthusiasm and for believing every student has the potential to shine both academically and through enrichment activities.

We continue to strive for a cohesive local community alongside ensuring our students have the best opportunities during their primary and secondary school careers.
