Welcome to Acacias Community Primary School.
We are a long established community school, initially established in 1908 with just 14 children. We now have over 450 children on roll and are proud of all they have achieved over the years in a happy and purposeful atmosphere. We regard everyone associated with the school as a member of our team. Parents and carers are an essential component of our school and it is a well known fact that children learn more effectively when parents and carers and the school work closely together. Governors are dedicated to Acacias and are also very much part of our team. We all work together within the community we serve to provide the best possible educational start for all our children.
Ofsted in 2011 said 'Acacias Community School is outstandingly effective in meeting the needs and raising the attainment of its richly diverse population. Outstanding drive, ambition and focused leadership, never complacent despite its obvious successes, have created an outstandingly caring and highly successful school.'
In December 2013 we were congratulated by the Right Hon David Laws MP (Minister of State for Schools) for the excellent performance of our pupils in the 2013 KS2 SATs tests. In the letter he informed us that we were amongst the 250 top performing schools nationally, in terms of the progress our pupils made between Key Stage 1 and the end of Key Stage 2.
