Desmond Anderson Primary Academy is a dynamic, happy and welcoming academy at the heart of its local community.
We pride ourselves on an engaging curriculum that every child can benefit from, a genuine love of learning and a close community approach to working with our parents and carers.
At Desmond Anderson, we cater for Reception to Year 6 children and we are lucky to have a Special Support Centre and a Nursery on site.
We are excited to welcome you to our academy and look forward to answering any questions you may have.
Mrs M Powys
Principal, Desmond Anderson Primary Academy
Our bright and spacious nursery provides a fun and stimulating learning environment both indoors and outdoors.
From singing to computing and everything in between, we offer options for all.
Brilliant Breakfast Club
From 7.45am, healthy breakfasts and board games await our early morning adventurers.
Fabulous Forest School
We love offering an opportunity for our pupils to have new, creative experiences in an outdoor environment in a safe, engaging way.
Our Teaching and Learning
Our curriculum is creative, fun and interactive. We have high expectations for all pupils so that they reach their full potential - wherever that lies. W have created a curriculum which is broad and balanced by design and builds upon the knowledge, understanding and skills of all children as they progress through our academy, whatever their starting points.
Every day children practise their skills through well-planned lessons and throughout the week they work collaboratively across a range of subjects.
As they move through the school pupils develop the emotional vocabulary and social skills they need to succeed, both within or academy and in their chosen futures.
Our Wraparound Care
From 7.45 -8.45am, early birds at Desmond Anderson can enjoy a breakfast of buttered toast & jam, cereal, milk, yoghurt, fruit, and water.
Once the children have finished eating, they will engage in light board games and other activities in the hall before they are taken to their classrooms.
There is an additional charge for this service.
