Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to our school website! I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Gossey Lane Academy!

Mrs S Amin   Headteacher

Gossey Lane Academy is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. Nothing matters more than making our children readers. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and for the future.

We follow the National Curriculum which is sequenced for cumulative knowledge, understanding and skills. We aim for our children to know and remember more by ensuring they complete the programmes of study, enabling them to reach Age Related Expectations. This will provide them with strong foundations for their secondary education.

Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations. We believe in ensuring that children receive a broad and balanced curriculum through which individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential. As an Oracy school, we believe that spoken language is essential to the development and achievement of our children across the curriculum. Good oracy skills also support wider literacy skills; it is linked to improvements in reading, writing, and overall attainment.

We have an unerring focus on developing pupils through our PSHE curriculum under pinned by our Aspire values. By the time our children leave Gossey Lane they will be well round individuals who will be successful both academically, emotionally and have well developed social skills. We go over and above the academics at Gossey Lane through our 11b411 so we can ensure that when our children reach the end of their primary school journey they can leave with a life time of wonderful memories.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Washwood Heath Multi Academy Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child’s education, wholeheartedly valuing your interest and support.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities. It will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. If you have suggestions to make about its content and design, please let the office staff know or make your suggestions via the parent surveys or enquiries.
