As a Headteacher and parent, I know that choosing a school for your child is a very important decision and I am delighted that you are considering Kentmere Academy and Nursery. I am confident that we provide the best learning experience for our pupils in a safe and happy environment and we are extremely proud of our schools and its achievements.
We are an Ofsted Outstanding school with a history of success. I would encourage you to read our Ofsted Report as it will tell you why we are one of just a few primary schools in Rochdale to be awarded Outstanding, the highest rating that can be achieved. Our academic excellence, a tailored curriculum, pastoral care and extra-curricular programmes are of the highest quality and are the cornerstones of the school.
We value academic success, where every pupil is nurtured and encouraged to fulfill their full potential. Our reputation is strong in the local area and beyond, with Kentmere Academy and Nursery being a popular choice and holding clear values that all of the school community respect.
We believe that working in partnership with parents is very important and we encourage you to be involved in the school. Parents are invited into school twice a year to meet with teachers to discuss your child’s progress and all pupils receive a progress report in the summer. We also invite parents to come into school assemblies and other events that take place throughout the year. We have been achieved the Leading Parent Partnership Award, endorsing the way in which we work with parents to ensure their child’s success.
Kentmere Academy and Nursery is a partner school of the Watergrove Trust and this gives our pupils access to additional facilities and resources and provides many of our students with progression to a high-quality secondary school. We have complete autonomy but have the support and advice of a team of staff who are dedicated to the improvement of the non-teaching elements of our school.
I welcome you to contact me personally and I look forward to meeting you and your child. It is recommended to see a school for yourself and I welcome you to arrange a visit so you can see first hand what a great choice we are.
Mrs S Isberg
