Welcome to Skegness Infant Academy! I am Rona Pryme and as Executive Principal my aim is to ensure we provide a great education for children aged between the ages of 3 and 7 years of age. At the Academy, we believe there are no boundaries to what each child can achieve, and we aim to work hard as a team, in partnership with you, to ensure each child reaches their full potential. What you want for your child is what we want.
As I work across both the Infant and Junior Academies, part of my role is to ensure continuity and consistency across both sites. By working together we can ensure all children achieve their potential, enjoy their time in both academies, make excellent progress and leave us equipped with the necessary skills for the next stage in their learning journeys and in order to lead successful and fulfilling lives. As time progresses, we will be taking advantage of opportunities to collaborate across the two sites to build even closer ties between our staff, children, parents and carers
I am determined that both academies build on their legacy of success and continue to flourish. We are lucky to have a highly-skilled, committed team on both sites who strive for the utmost success for our children and who have a caring and supportive ethos at their core. Both academies are unique and I feel privileged to be leading them forward with your support and that of my two Heads of School, Miss Hardwick and Mrs Lewis-Bettison.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries, concerns or if there is anything I can do to help and support you with your child’s learning and school life.
I would like to thank you for your continued commitment and support towards the staff and pupils of both academies and I look forward to our future work together,
Mrs R Pryme
