Welcome to Mulberry Park Educate Together Primary Academy. We opened in September 2018 with our first Reception class and are now in our second year of operation. Each year we will grow by one class until the school reaches capacity.
I am proud to be part of Educate Together Academy Trust and have loved every minute of the past 5 years working for them. Having been the Early Years lead and Deputy Head at Redfield Educate Together Academy, I am delighted to be leading Mulberry Park on this exciting journey as we continue to develop an outstanding model of education for the 21st century.
We are an equality-based school where we live by the mottos ‘no child an outsider’ and ‘learn together to live together’. Our school celebrates diversity, individuality and respects each child's identity, respecting that of their family equally. This enables us to develop the whole child encouraging all children to excel. Our unique curriculum and core principles enable us to create a nurturing environment which develops the skills our children need to be global citizens for the increasingly diverse society that we live in.
Our core principles are:
· Equality based - all children have equal rights of access to the school and children of all social, cultural and religious backgrounds are equally respected
· Co-Educational – all children are encouraged to explore their full range of abilities and opportunities
· Child – centred – we always put the children at the heart of every decision and activity. If it is not in the interest of the children’s learning or welfare then why do it?
· Democratically run – we encourage active participation of parents, children and the community in the daily life of the school whilst positively affirming the professional role of the teachers
We actively question whether what we do is for the children's learning and welfare. If it isn't then we question why we are doing it. We believe that a commitment to high academic standards is possible alongside a creative and ethical curriculum. The ‘Learn Together Curriculum’ is taught daily and integrated with the National Curriculum.
Our committed staff team strive to provide our children with the happiest and best education possible. We warmly welcome visitors to our school so that we can share our exciting learning environment and ethos whilst sharing our vision for Mulberry Park Educate Together.
