More than a school

Smith's Wood, More Than A School of Character!

Recently, Smith's Wood Primary Academy undertook an external assessment visit from the Association for Character Education to make a judgement on our status as a school of Character.  Pleasingly, we were awarded an increased level of Kitemark to Kitemark + which shows our progress since first receiving the accolade in 2017.  Assessors reported that this award clearly recognises the high quality of learning, mutually respectful relationships and values-driven personal development programme, which are prevalent in the school’s provision.  They also reported that teachers at Smith’s Wood Academy are confident and competent moral educators, as well as teachers of the curriculum.  Congratulations to all pupils, staff, parents/carers and Governors at Smith's Wood Primary Academy for this unbelievable achievement.
