Small School With A Big Heart Provides A Great StartNathan
Fishtoft Academy, fondly known as the ‘small school with a big heart’, is located in the village’s Gaysfield Road and prides itself on being a friendly, family-orientated academy.
As any visitor will testify, the school possesses an exceptional atmosphere which encourages the important quality of ambition within all of its pupils.
The high staff to pupil ratio at Fishtoft Academy means that all children are known and valued as unique individuals. They are provided with high levels of support and challenge in order to ensure the best possible outcomes for them – an approach which is working very well for the academy, as evidenced by the fact that twice within the last five years the school has been in the top 3% of schools nationally for pupil progress measures at Key Stage 2.
Head of Fishtoft Academy, Jo Bland, said: “We understand the importance of making learning fun and engaging, but most importantly purposeful, and strive to do this every day through the delivery of a rich, diverse curriculum which ignites curiosity and unlocks talent. As a result, our pupils are well-mannered, inquisitive and eager to learn.
“Despite our small size, we see ourselves as a forward-thinking academy that embraces the latest in educational research – yet also one that promotes and instils the timeless values of respect, honesty, hard work and compassion for each other.
“Moreover, through collaborative working with our wider Multi-Academy Trust, BWAF, our pupils have access to a superb range of additional facilities and resources – including immersive classrooms and subject specialist teaching.”
Some of the many benefits Fishtoft Academy can offer include:
- A traditional ‘family values’ style education
- A highly personalised curriculum with all students in Key Stage Two having a tablet to support their learning
- Daily onsite Breakfast Club provision from 8am
- From Reception to Year Three, children are taught in classes with a maximum size of 20 pupils
It is true that, apart from home, school is the single most important place in the lives of most children. Their experience of school plays a vital role in their lives and is a key determiner in their future.
The staff at Fishtoft Academy recognise this and work hard every day to ensure that ‘school life’ is exceptional for those within their care.
