Welcome to Southcoates Primary Academy 

Children have been learning at this school for over 100 years and Southcoates is part of the history of the area. We are proud of our history and look to the future and the part our pupils will play in it. As part of the Enquire Learning Trust, we want the very best for all of our children. We want to ensure they are prepared for the next step in their education and the world of work.  Southcoates Academy has high aspirations and expectations for every child and we maintain a caring, family-orientated culture. We work hard to meet the needs of all children. This is done by providing a calm, orderly environment in which every child is respected and valued. 


We are proud that this was recognised during our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2023. The report stated that: “Pupils are proud to attend Southcoates Primary Academy. Staff have high expectations of all pupils. The school works in partnership with parents and carers to benefit pupils in their development and learning… Pupils feel safe in school. Incidents of bullying are rare… Pupils behave well in lessons and around school. They are polite to visitors and conduct themselves with maturity. Classrooms are calm environments that enable pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), to concentrate and learn. From a young age, pupils are supported to be independent and responsible. This prepares them well for the next stage of their education.” 


We aim to help each child experience success and to reach their full potential by providing the highest standard of education and care. Our academy adopts a 'whole academy approach' to special educational needs and all staff work to ensure inclusion of all pupils. The academy is committed to ensuring that pupils with special educational needs can fulfil their potential and achieve optimal educational outcomes (full details regarding our Equality Objectives are detailed in the Special Education Needs, Disability and Equality Policy on this website).
