Message from Ms Speller - Headteacher
Inspire – Believe - Achieve
Welcome to Stapleford Abbotts Primary Academy
A warm welcome to Stapleford Abbotts Primary Academy. We are a small one form entry Primary Academy set on the borders of rural Essex served the community of Stapleford Abbotts since 1887. We also have a preschool on our site, so our children join us at three years old.
Our children are polite, respectful and have a high regard for being a part of a truly amazing little school.
The staff are dynamic, highly motivated, and committed to working as an exceptional team of professional teachers and support staff. The school’s morals and values are set in our vison of ‘Inspire - Believe - Achieve’. We offer a curriculum that educates and nurtures each child, enabling them to achieve high standards of academic attainment whilst also enabling them to become capable, caring and confident learners, ready to take their next step in the journey to adulthood.
Your child is important to us and they will be treated as individuals. Learning will be active and engaging, they will be motivated, stretched and challenged because we want them to achieve their very best. We want your child to be in a school that is a happy one and where everyone is valued for the unique qualities they bring to their learning journey here.
Throughout my 22 years in Primary Education, I have had the privilege to teach and lead in a variety of settings including Infant and Junior schools across Essex. Six years ago, I was appointed as Assistant Headteacher in a small Primary school and progressed to Deputy Headteacher a few years later in a large three form entry Infant school. My passion is English which I have successfully led for over 15 years with my driving force always being to inspire children to unlock the wonders books have to offer, sparking imaginations and encouraging young writers to write with enjoyment. To hear a child express their enthusiasm about a book they have read is music to my ears!
My philosophy is to have an 'open mind and open door' with the people I work with, children and families, with communication and fairness being at the heart of a successful school community.
I have two teenage children, a very energetic working cocker spaniel called Milo and a perfect weekend for our family is to paddleboard along the beautiful waterways of Essex, soaking up the scenery and trying to avoid swans!
I am delighted to be the new Headteacher of Stapleford Abbotts Primary Academy and will strive to build on the school's strong foundation as we move towards a bright future; one of educational excellence for the children we have the pleasure to teach.
