Green Ridge Academy will be a new primary school built on Berryfields, opening in September 2017 in temporary accommodation on the site of the permanent building. The academy will initially have an intake of 60 children into our Reception class this September with an additional Key Stage 1 class. The permanent school building is due to open for September 2018.

A large part of the Phase Leader/Head of Learning role will include coaching and mentoring staff within the phase to ensure that teaching and learning is at least good and outstanding.
