Welcome to West Row Academy! 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family from all of us at ‘Team West Row’!  Our caring, inclusive ethos and ambitious values drive everything we do to ensure that your child receives the best education possible.

Our school is proud to be a member of Eastern Multi-Academy Trust (EMAT), which is a family of 12 primary schools who work closely with one another to ensure best practice and outcomes in our schools.  EMAT is one of the highest performing Academy Trusts in the Great Britain and being a member of the EMAT family means we have access to the best educational advice and support on offer in the country today.

At West Row Academy, we have high aspirations for all our pupils and aim to provide an inspirational, challenging and supportive environment where children can excel, no matter what their age, need or background -every child who come to us brings something unique and special to the community.  We are an inclusive, family friendly school and welcome everyone, doing all we can to support and empower families, actively encouraging them to be involved in all aspects of Academy life.

I hope that this website will give you a taste of what life is like for children at West Row Academy.
