Welcome to Waterside Academy.
Waterside Academy is part of the Herts for Learning Multi Academy Trust which includes a growing number of schools across Hertfordshire, both primary and secondary. Each school within the Trust retains its own values and culture but all the schools work closely together to ensure best practice and provision for the children within it.
My aim as Headteacher, is to ensure that the children at Waterside Academy learn happily, succeeding both academically and socially so they grow into happy, sociable and caring members of society of whom we can all be proud.
As a parent and teacher I understand that choosing the right school for your child is a big decision and I hope this website gives you an insight into our school and what we can offer.
Although we place a great emphasis on standards of maths and literacy, we also aim to develop the children's wider skills through our evolving curriculum. The children at our school are enthusiastic learners and we do our very best to make activities engaging, challenging and fun!
The early years of a child’s education are vital and we have an excellent Nursery class which runs in the mornings and an optional Pre School, run by an outside provider, in the afternoons. We work in partnership with them to provide all day provision for those families who choose it. Working parents may also choose to make use of the breakfast club, run by school staff, which runs daily from 7.45am.
We pride ourselves with the sense of community the school offers children and we have a school dog called Daisy, who is very well loved. She is an invaluable part of our community and brings a feeling of calm and belonging to everything we do.
Our children describe their school as ‘fun’, ‘caring’ and ‘exciting’. Should you wish to come and see for yourself, we would be delighted for you to call the office and arrange a visit.
