Primary Academy


Welcome to our page.  Our names are Mr Dean and Mrs Wilson and we are the English and Phonics Coordinators for our school.



Opening the Mansfield GATE through English


We generate all our children’s interest in English through appealing, pleasurable, and stimulating experiences. Children develop creativity and curiosity through language and high-quality texts.


Children aspire to achieve their full potential. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is progressive and offers the children opportunities to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding


We work together to communicate our thoughts and ideas through engaging stimuli. We acquire and share high-quality vocabulary that is embedded in our curriculum.


Children are given the opportunity to enquire through immersive experiences that support them in their understanding of the world. High-quality texts are used to create a love for reading and to have a passion for writing across a variety of genres.



At Mansfield Primary Academy we believe that a high quality English curriculum should develop children’s love of reading, writing and discussion. We offer a broad and balanced English curriculum which aims to inspire and engage all pupils. We recognise the importance of nurturing a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts.
We believe that children need to develop a secure knowledge-base in Literacy, which follows a clear pathway of progression as they advance through the primary curriculum.



Inspirational children who are confident in the art of speaking and listening and who can use discussion and a range of writing styles to clearly communicate with their audience.
