The Flitch Green Academy is a modern take of a village school, where all of the children know one another and show care and compassion for each other. We are very proud of our fantastic building, talented team of staff, our hard working Governing body, our delightful children and our very supportive parents.
Our vision is to 'provide creative learning experiences, which will inspire and challenge our children to maximise their academic potential' ensuring 'children leave us as honest, kind and respectful young people, equipped with the skills to continue their journey as lifelong learners'.
The Academy is a member of the 'Dunmow Excellence in Education Partnership' (DEEP), which consists of nine local primary schools; Dunmow St Mary's, Felsted, Great Bardfield, Great Dunmow, Great Easton, Rodings, Stebbing, Thaxted and Flitch Green.
The schools have a long history of successful collaboration. The group is already active in providing initial teacher training, training for learning support assistants and joint training and development opportunities for all schools’ staff. The schools also work closely with Cambridge University in education research projects.
Providing high quality opportunities for children is a priority. Some children have already taken part in joint activities with other schools in the group this year, for example, internet safety talks for year 6. The year 5 children will be taking part in a careers fair. Sports fixtures and festivals are organised through the partnership.
Schools in the DEEP partnership share common values and are committed to providing support and challenge to each other to achieve their ambition of all schools improving.
Working together means that we can achieve more value for money and hence put on activities we might not be able to afford, so the partnership works to the mutual benefit of everyone involved.
