Clifford Bridge Academy


Clifford Bridge Academy's new website is under construction and is coming soon!

Welcome from our CEO


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Clifford Bridge Academy. Our school is member of the Inspire Multi-Academy Trust of five primary schools. The other schools are: Hearsall community Academy, Stockingford Academy, Academy, Walsgrave CE Academy and Whittle Academy

Clifford Bridge primary school is a popular primary school with a village like feel in a popular residential location. The school was lucky enough to have a new build and refurbishment in 2013 as it grew from a one to two form entry school.

We are all positive about the autonomy and independence that comes with our schools being a group of academies working together. The schools are accountable to a ‘Board of Directors’ and the ‘Local Governing Body’.

At Inspire Education Trust we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our children. They are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to inspire all learners and we want all our schools to be the best they can be and for each child to discover the skills, abilities, talents and interests that lie within them.

The schools have a desire to question, change and innovate to ensure that what they provide enables our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We believe in working in partnership, enabling us to ensure all children to achieve their full potential. Our schools know the impact that working collaboratively can bring.

At the same time, we recognise the importance for each school to retain and promote their individual identity. Every school has its own context and challenges. This is why we encourage our member schools to lead and manage in a way that preserves that individual identity and responds to the specific needs of their children and community.

The combination of autonomy and collaboration across key areas of leadership and management, underpinned by shared vision, values and best practice is what makes our schools special.

We want to work in partnership with parents and carers and will provide regular opportunities for you to come into school. We have an open door policy and all problems and concerns will be promptly dealt with.

I hope to see your children regularly when I am in school to share and celebrate with them their hard work, efforts and achievements and I look forward to seeing you in the near future!

Welcome from our Headteacher


I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. I hope you enjoy looking through just some of the fantastic things we’ve been doing in our exciting school.

We are a vibrant and happy two-form entry school, who were graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted in October 2019, with three of the five areas being graded as ‘Outstanding’. The report stated, “Pupils at Clifford Bridge Academy love to learn and teachers expect the best…Pupils are a credit to the school and are excellent ambassadors. They are right to be proud of their school. Parents say that Clifford Bridge is a very special place.”  Follow this link to read the full report.

As part of the Inspire Multi-Academy Trust, we work in close partnership with Walsgrave CE Academy, Whittle Academy, Hearsall Community Academy, Stockingford Academy and Blue Coat C of E Academy. The links between the schools are both stimulating and supportive, enabling us to share best practice though collaborative working.

You will find our Clifford Bridge family warm and welcoming as our children, parents, carers, staff and friends of schools are at the heart of all we do. We are passionate about every child reaching for the stars; shining brightly in their individual talents and working hard to achieve their hopes and dreams. As their teachers, we promise to use our own light to guide them on their journey, and to always take decisions that have them at the core.

Our broad and balanced curriculum provides the water that quenches children’s thirst for learning and our dedicated staff provide the nutrients that children need to thrive and explore.

We would usually encourage you to come and see it for yourselves but due to the current situation, we have increased our number of social media posts to help you to get the ‘feel’ of our school.

Clifford Bridge Academy is a member of Inspire Education Trust, a Multi Academy Trust of five Primary Schools, Hearsall Academy, Stockingford Academy, Walsgrave Academy and Whittle Academy. The Trust benefits from the shared leadership of the CEO, Executive Principal Primary, and her team. The trust grew from a shared belief that children deserve a first-class education so that each individual child understands what they are capable of, what talents they have, and strives for excellence in themselves in order to succeed in the next stage of their education and the world of work.

We understand that every member of staff is here for the best interest of the children. We want to ensure that every child is valued and that the unique identity of each school is protected, celebrated and recognised for the contribution it makes to ensuring children have the best education and experiences.

Our mission statement captures the way in which we work to achieve this.

“Together we achieve, individually we grow”

The schools work in a spirit of partnership with a shared curriculum and staff training. Leaders at all levels meeting regularly to ensure consistency of standards, expectations and approach in all five schools.
