About Us

Minerva Primary Academy is a happy and successful school. We are a popular two form entry Primary School with a committed staff and an amazing new building and unique playground. Our school vision is "Learning, Believing, Growing, Achieving" and everything we do is underpinned by our seven learning dispositions of planning ahead, being adaptable, persevering, being curious and creative, making connections and collaborating. These are taken form the effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI) .

We are committed to providing our children with the best possible start to their education. We value creativity and the arts, giving every pupil experience in music, art and performance throughout their time in our school. We aim to instil a love of learning and are passionate that our children's primary education will be full of success and life-long memories.

Our Ethos and Vision

Learning, Believing, Growing, Achieving

Our aim

At Minerva Primary Academy we believe that all children deserve the best teaching for learning opportunities every day, with their needs met and a love of learning they will achieve great outcomes. We want all children to be confident, curious, adaptable and independent learners who can use these learning skills now and as they progress through their education and beyond.

We will do this by

  • Setting the highest expectations of leaders, teaching staff, children and families to ensure all children achieve
  • Ensuring learning is joy-filled and takes place in and out of the classroom
  • Getting to know all children well so we can support them and move their learning on whatever their starting point
  • Having an engaging curriculum that enables children to understand themselves, their place in the world, seek meaning and make connections
  • Encouraging children to believe in themselves and developing a ‘can do’ attitude that builds resilience and self-belief
  • Teaching British values to enable children to make their own choice to be respectful, responsible, value the diverse world we live in and contribute positivity to society
  • Raising aspirations and supporting every child to achieve their goals academically, socially and emotionally

Working for Us

Our Academy is part of the Cabot Learning Federation and benefits from all the advantages of being part of a group of academies.

Children visit other academies for sports and other events such as language or science activities. Students from the secondary academies visit us for to perform drama and take part in sports activities, as well as lead some of them. We share good practice between academies and teachers from all academies in the Federation visit the other academies for professional development.

Here at the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF), we like to celebrate. We celebrate exam results, collaboration, achievement, innovations and new ideas; we celebrate the determination of our students; we celebrate the amazing role played by staff; and we celebrate the efforts and successes of our team.

We celebrate the small achievements and the big. But far from being self-congratulatory, we are always looking to learn, to improve education and to make a positive difference for students and their families. And that's where you come in.

At the CLF, we value your experience, skills, expertise and ideas. We expect you to help us to be the very best education provider, and in return we will listen and support you to take your career in whichever direction you choose.

With the CLF you can be a leader, find solutions, become an expert, close the gaps and inspire and influence. The range of roles and opportunities in the CLF is as diverse as the communities we serve.

Or you may simply want to fulfil your defined role to the very best of your abilities.

Whatever our individual aspirations, together we make education real every day, in a very individual sense for each student. We learn each day from colleagues, students, families and local communities and we embrace our values and take pride in our work.

Cabot Learning Federation

The Cabot Learning Federation is a partnership of schools that is sponsored by Rolls Royce PLC and The University of the West of England (UWE). It now sponsors twelve academies in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Weston super Mare and Bath. This means that we are responsible and accountable for the education of 5600 students between the ages of 3 and 19 and for the employment and support of over 1200 staff.

Our vision is based upon our mission of "collaboration for outstanding achievement" and the work that is now shared between our schools at senior and middle leadership level, teachers and support staff underpins this every day. All of our staff are employed by the CLF and this enables us to give colleagues the opportunity to work in more than one academy either for their own development or because the skills that they have are needed by more than one of our schools.

The Cabot Learning Federation enters 2015 with a new CEO, Steve Taylor. Steve has played a major part in the development of the federation, both as Principal of Bristol Metropolitan Academy and Executive Principal of the CLF: We are moving forward into the next era with confidence, building on the success of our 3-19 collaboration and continuing to change the face of learning and community cohesion for the areas in which our academies are located.
