A place of excellence and innovation, where children’s skills, knowledge and values grow.

Widewell Primary Academy is a single form entry school set amongst 12 acres of school grounds comprising a large sports field and woodland conservation area as well as break-time spaces with playgrounds, growing areas and adventurous play areas. We serve families from the Widewell, Belliver and Southway communities, many of whom are service families.

We believe that our pupils are better able to achieve their potential within a positive, nurturing learning environment, where they are individually known by our dedicated team of staff, who work incredibly hard to provide innovative opportunities for them to learn. Our pupils are given opportunities to show their strengths in a range of fields eg singing, sports, leadership, and to strive to excel to become the best they can be.

At Widewell we welcome all and believe everyone matters. All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique. We believe that the ‘special feel’ at Widewell Primary Academy is linked with our positive, caring but challenging learning environment. Our school continues to develop in many exciting and innovative ways, providing an even more enriching experience for our pupils.

Widewell Primary became an academy in February 2013 and we were one of the founder members of the Horizon Multi Academy Trust. We work very closely with our partner schools in the Horizon MAT and within the wider Plymouth school community. We have strong and active links with our local universities and secondary schools.

We are very proud of what we are achieving across the school and I would invite you to visit to meet our delightful pupils and experience our fantastic and caring environment for yourselves.
