Merritts Brook E-ACT Primary Academy

Merritts Brook E-ACT Primary Academy is a happy and caring place, committed to ensuring high standards in all aspects of school life, for the benefit of every pupil.

Merritts Brook E-ACT Primary Academy prides itself on providing an excellent standard of education so that all pupils reach their potential and aspire to a productive and successful life. The academy aims to inspire all children with a love of learning, and for them to become future citizens who are resourceful, resilient and responsible.

The academy focuses on creating a shared vision with parents and carers, so that together they can work to ensure every single child becomes a confident, self-assured and successful young person when they move on to secondary school.

Great emphasis is placed on a curriculum that ensures pupils are competent in the basic skills with time dedicated on a daily basis to tables, number bonds, spelling, handwriting and reading.  As core subjects, Literacy and Numeracy are also taught on a daily basis, and Science is taught frequently.

In addition, as part of the focus on creating a happy and caring environment, Merritts Brook has worked with parents, staff and pupils to select 12 key values that underpin academy life. At the start of each month, there is a whole school assembly launching the value, followed by weekly assemblies to reinforce what the value means and how individuals should behave.

Our vision is to inspire all children with a love of learning. We want our children to become outstanding future citizens who are resourceful, resilient and responsible. These '3Rs' underpin our teaching, giving our pupils the confidence, skills and attitudes to be successful lifelong achievers.
