Working for Langley Park Primary Academy: Langley Park Primary Academy is a unique academy with pupils from Nursery to Year 6 with an onsite Specialist Resource Provision for children with a primary need of ASD. This exciting provision demonstrates the academy’s sense of ambition to serve the community where pupils’ educational journey is so important. Being part of a provision that caters for such a wide range of age groups and needs means that there are copious opportunities for both children and staff to extend their experiences to grow and develop in many different ways. To enrich our curriculum, we take advantage of the resources and subject specific expertise we have in abundance in our academy. This means our pupils benefit from subjects like PE and Forest School being taught by specialists. There are also plenty of opportunities for colleagues  to collaborate across all age ranges and roles to ensure that we are developing our pupils into well-rounded life long learners who are well equipped to contribute to society throughout their lives. In addition to this, the pupils and staff have access to resources that are unique to our provision. These include; a DT lab (including cookers and other various equipment), a sensory room, a forest school, sports facilities and a well stocked library.

We are delighted to announce that following our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2019 the hard work and dedication of the academy was recognised and was judged as ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ features in for our early years provision, personal development, behaviour and welfare and effectiveness of leadership and management.

Nearly 40% of our academies are judged outstanding overall by Ofsted, versus 15% nationally. The Trust is establishing four ‘clusters’ of academies: North Kent; Central Kent; South East London; Medway. In addition, the Trust is responsible for one of the region’s biggest initial teaching training organisations, a large teaching school hub and is an accredited apprenticeship provider. Our future plans are found in our Vision 2030 document available on our website.

As part of Leigh Academies Trust, you will have ample opportunity to collaborate with your peers both within the academy and across the whole Trust. This is an important part of our vision as we know through experience that we perform better when we work together. You are supported to undertake regular self-development to continue your professional development and hopefully progress further within the organisation.
