Ipswich MP visits Piper’s Vale Primary Academy

Tom Hunt, the newly elected Member of Parliament for Ipswich, will be visiting us to see how Paradigm Trust is improving education in the town.

We have made huge leaps in academic progress over the last 12 months with Y6 SATS exceeding the national average in Maths and achieving it in English, and we pride ourself in ensuring pupils have every opportunity to meet their potential.

Commenting ahead of his visit to Piper’s Vale, Tom Hunt MP, said:

“I am delighted to have been invited to meet the pupils and teachers at Piper’s Vale today. We want to ensure that all the children of Ipswich have access to the best possible education and we can do this by learning from the best schools and academies in our town.”

Kimberly Morton, Principal, said:

“We are pleased to welcome Tom Hunt MP into our school and community. We are all working together hard to ensure all pupils get the support they need to meet their potential and while we have had some fantastic results, there is still a long way to go. On-going support from Tom and his team over the next Parliament will be invaluable in helping us ensure the school reaches its potential.”

Our pupils benefit from modern buildings, extensive playing fields, outside space and a huge range of extra-curricular activities including swimming. Families benefit from wrap around care at the breakfast club and on-site nursery.

If you would like to find out more about the school and speak or meet with Principal Kimberly Morton, please call the school office on 01473 320413.

Paradigm Trust Values Awards

This week, Paradigm Trust celebrated pupils who have been awarded all three values awards and have become the first values champions in the Trust. Paradigm shares the same core values throughout all of its schools:

  • Integrity – doing the right thing even when no one is watching.
  • Excellence – enabling everyone to achieve more through education.
  • Community – working together; learning from, and supporting, others.

Each week, pupils are nominated for positive behaviours that link to a value and each half term winners are chosen to receive a values award. Once a pupil has received an award for all three values s/he receives a values award. This week, 4 pupils from Piper’s Vale Primary Academy were recognised for receiving all three values awards and becoming values champions. Here are a few examples:

  • Integrity – for always doing the right thing and being a role model for the rest of the class
  • Community – for being kind and helpful to all and offering to help out around the classroom
  • Excellence – for completing work to the highest standards and responding to feedback given.

Pupils were presented with a certificate and values champion badge by Bill Holledge, CEO, Paradigm Trust and enjoyed a festive afternoon tea with their families.
