Once again we are in lockdown and operating as a virtual school for the majority.  We are still open for the children of key workers and children who are deemed to be vulnerable.

Click here to view our Virtual School offering and also click here to view a video from the CEO of The Elliot Foundation.

All children have access to Google Classroom, Purple Mash, TT Rockstars and Reading Eggs.  Our early years have access to Tapestry.  For those families who do not have a device we are providing paper copies of learning which you can arrange to be collected.  Please contact the school office on 0121 675 4686.

Please do get in touch if I can do anything to help.  our COVID19 link will have all up to date COVID19 news that you may need to view.

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
