Dear Parents:

17th July 2020


Dear Parents,

I want to thank you all for your continued support, cooperation and generosity during 2019/20 - a year which brought unimaginable challenges never before experienced. I want to sincerely thank and congratulate you all on the fantastic job you have done with home-schooling children and for looking after their physical and mental well-being during these difficult months.

The Department of Education released guidance on a September start and since then  I have been working with the senior leadership team and the trust to get the school ready for a September start.  I am sure you can understand and see that there will be many challenges ahead and the trust and school did not want to rush plans without risk assessing all potential issues that may occur.

Over the summer, I will contact you with details on how the school will operate from September.  Please do not worry about school now, things could change depending on the government guidance and information I provide, will be lengthy and in depth.  I want to be able to give you definite plans.

Stay safe, 

Mr Bashir 


Welcome from Mr Bashir


Dear Parents,

May I, on behalf of the pupils, staff, Board of Governors and The Elliot Foundation trust, take this opportunity of welcoming you to the Shirestone Academy website. I hope you find it purposeful in providing you with a brief insight into school life.

We were judged as an  Outstanding school by OFSTED and we aim to ensure children are given a world class education to help shape them for the future.  Our links with the local secondary schools is excellent and we ensure every transition opportunity is given to children to help prepare them for secondary school.

We see our school community as a family, with third and fourth generations of families being educated at Shirestone Academy. I am privileged to lead a team of highly skilled, experienced and dedicated teaching and support staff. We also value the involvement of parents and friends of the school in working together to provide the best that our young people deserve.

As a school we believe in mutual respect between children staff and parents and his underpins our core vision to ensure all children are given the best possible experience a primary school can provide.  This includes academic opportunities as well as non academic.  We offer a broad and balanced curriculum enriched with visitors, visits, events and activities to inspire in each child a joy for learning. Our  ethos focuses our expectations that our children are honest and respectful, care for others and work hard to develop skills which will allow them to be good citizens and achieve success now and in the future.

We look forward to welcoming you and your children into our school.

Nadeem Bashir - Principal
