Parent’s Welcome – NEW VISION

Welcome message for parents and carers


I am thrilled and privileged to be the Headteacher of The Keystone Academy and am genuinely looking forward to getting to know our pupils and their families.

Here at Keystone we want to support your child by working alongside you.  Our staff are committed to providing a nurturing environment where your child feels safe and supported and will work tirelessly to achieve the very best outcomes for them.

We have a well-rounded approach to education, which means we value all aspects of learning and development.   In our efforts to help your child grow and become the best they can be, we place an emphasis on the whole person, not just that which can be measured by exam success.  We are able to offer a personalised approach to the curriculum, tailored to individual needs and supported by specialist teaching and support staff.  We will help them to overcome any barriers to learning, encouraging them to develop their confidence and learn to love their uniqueness.  We will help them to build upon their resilience and give them the tools to cope emotionally and socially in the modern world.

During their time with us at Keystone, we aim to help your child develop a real love of learning, discovering their strengths and excelling at them.  They will benefit from a range of learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom, all of which will help to improve their life chances and lead to happy and healthy adult lives.

I would like to extend an invitation to you to come and visit our school, so you can find out for yourself how we support our pupils and how we work together with our parents and carers too.
