Welcome Message

Message from the Headteacher,

A very warm welcome to Skelmanthorpe Academy website from all the children, staff and governors.

At Skelmanthorpe Academy, we aim to educate and nurture every child, ensuring they acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful in the future. A great team of dedicated and hard-working teachers, and support staff strive to ensure that your children have the best educational experience that they can possibly have.

We strongly believe that it is only by working in partnership with parents that we can provide the combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise that will ensure that all our pupils fulfill their potential. We are lucky enough to have good support from many parents in school and our parent group, FOTS, work closely with school and many events are organised that draw the whole school family together as often as possible

We are committed to ensuring the best possible care and education for our children and we are continually looking for ways to improve and develop what we do, in order to make our school the best it can possibly be.

I hope that you find the website content both informative and enjoyable. We know that choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision. The best way to find out more about our school is to come and visit us. The children and staff are always pleased to show visitors our school at work.

To arrange a visit please telephone Mrs Haigh in the school office on 01484 863306 or email her at office@skelmanthorpeacademy.org She will be delighted to make the arrangements.
