Welcome to Adderlane Academy

Welcome to Adderlane Academy, you are very welcome!

It is an honour to lead this unique, friendly, hard working and family orientated school in the busy town of Prudhoe, Northumberland.

At Adderlane we endeavour to look after the children and the staff within the setting to ensure that they have everything they need to succeed. This may be resources, additional help, strong relationships with adults and a rigorous PSHE curriculum and Wellbeing package. 

Our partnership with our parents is a priority. We use an in school messaging service to ensure that communication is of a high standard. 

We endeavour to ensure our children leave the school as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations who understand how to make a positive contribution to their community and wider society.

We ensure we provide pupils with memorable first hand experiences. We focus particularly on developing the oracy skills of our pupils, by providing rich relevant vocabulary and appropriate stem sentences. We use strategies to ensure children remember more and enjoy learning.

Our curriculum at Adderlane is sequenced from the day they enter the school until the day they leave, building on prior learning and developing basic skills.

Through our subject planning we aim to ignite a lifetime interest in the wider world. The children’s own community and traditions are frequently used as a starting point for engaging interest. We focus on nurturing children’s personal and social development. We endeavour to prepare our children for life in modern Britain.

We hope to foster an enjoyment of the curriculum, promoting achievement, confidence and good behaviour. Confident children who feel safe will try new things and we hope that here at Adderlane we offer a varied diet of experiences in abundance!

Looking forward to meeting you soon!
