I am the Executive Principal of Piper’s Vale Primary Academy. I work closely with Principal, Kimberly Morton, and other senior colleagues to lead and manage the school on a day-to-day basis, as well as coordinating input from the Paradigm Trust central improvement team so that we deliver the outstanding education that every child deserves.

Parents and community
Parents play a really important part in the life of our school. They play a particularly important part in their own children’s learning. We encourage parents to come into school at every opportunity.
We encourage parents to help in classrooms, to be available to go on school trips and to come into assemblies, but the first thing we ask them to do is to get their children to come to school on time and to be really ready to learn.
It is important that your child arrives at school each day on time because every day matters and every minute counts. School helps your child develop important relationships, take part in all of the curriculum and ensure that they develop friendships later on.
We are an inclusive school, which means that we feel that every child should be able to participate in every aspect of school life with a sense of belonging and a sense of being valued.
We do this by using a nurturing approach and through activities which promote social skills and emotional development, and we do this within a safe, affirming and consistent environment.
Kimberly Morton is the named lead person for SEND, and can be contacted via the school office.
