Around 24% are eligible for free school meals. The former Infant and Junior schools closed, over midnight on the 31st August and opened as Fulbridge Primary School on September 1st 2004. Prior to this when the school was a separate Infant and Junior School, the Junior School was in Special Measures from 2001 – 2003 and the current Head, Mr Iain M Erskine, and one of the deputies, Mrs Charlotte Krzanicki, took over during this period.
We aim to be central to our culturally diverse community, striving for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest
and academic potential.
Our academy encourages exploration and creativity through an inspiring, broad and balanced, engaging curriculum where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in a risk-taking environment where they thrive on and learn from the challenges they face. Everyone is encouraged to achieve as individuals, in preparation for their roles as caring and active citizens in modern Britain.
