Ingoldsby Academy

Founded in 1877, Ingoldsby is a mixed Primary School, for children from 4 to 11 years old with a nursery facility on site at the school, taking children from their third birthday.


The following page provides an overview of the broad and interesting curriculum which is in operation at Ingoldsby Academy.


The ultimate vision for our curriculum is to provide the children with a broad, challenging and exciting curriculum that supports well being, relationships and creativity. 

Curriculum is Key 2019-2020 

At Ingoldsby Academy, we teach a carefully planned, knowledge-rich curriculum which aims to inspire pupils and promote excellent outcomes for all.

The curriculum content has been carefully chosen by talented subject experts within our trust and is organised in a coherent way, ensuring children can build their knowledge of concepts from Key Stage to Key Stage. In this way, the knowledge in the curriculum is progressive, constructing firm foundations and schema from which children can progress and develop deeper conceptual understanding and subject-specific knowledge and skills over time that will not only equip them for further study in the future but give them the general knowledge and vocabulary to hold their own.

Curriculum coherence enables children to develop knowledge over time, as well as a love of subjects. Subject content is crucial to this approach- the rich content of the curriculum inspires children and plants the seeds for a lifetime of learning.

Lessons are taught with talk and thinking critically at the heart. Children are encouraged to learn in a variety of ways.

David Ross Education Trust and British Values

The Trust is very supportive of the ethos of promoting British Values, and preparing our pupils for success in a modern Britain.

A heavy reliance is placed upon broadening horizons for each and every child and this includes developing the core skills of tolerance, respect, teamwork, resilience and building self-esteem. These are all values and qualities that we feel are relevant in order to play a full and meaningful role in society, and are promoted via our extensive house system that lends itself to cultural and sporting competition, democratic principles, social mixing, the development of greater pastoral care and enhanced PSHE.
