Here you will find our newsletters


First of all, I would like to start my first ever Headteacher newsletter by saying a massive “thank you” to everyone who has made me feel so welcome at Glemsford Primary Academy. The staff, governors, parents and most importantly of all the children have been so friendly and encouraging that I know I have made a great decision coming here. It has been invaluable being able to start in June and working alongside Mr Beazeley has really helped the handover process.

I see my task as - the new head - to continue all the brilliant things already going on at the school, for example, the extensive after school provision and the incredibly positive atmosphere around the school, whilst ensuring that standards of teaching and learning improve - especially in Maths and English. There is good teaching and learning going on, but we must not rest on our laurels, and I am determined to help Glemsford on the next step of its journey - to become a fantastic school in all areas.

As well as new beginnings, some of our youngsters are coming to the end of their Glemsford journey. Although I don’t know them well, the year sixes have been a real credit to the school. I had great pleasure in watching their performance and I was bowled over by their confidence and maturity. I have no doubt they will be fine which ever school they move on to. You are all welcome to pop back and say “hello.”

Finally, I would like to wish you all a fantastic summer holiday. Make sure you get outside in our wonderful countryside and don’t get stuck behind a TV or computer screen too much! Go out and explore what is out there and if you are stuck for ideas, have a look on the National Trust website. You will never be bored again!

Kind regards


Ben Jeffery
