Quality Teaching Under the guidance of its new principal West Town Primary Academy has restructured its teaching team to provide smaller class sizes for many of our children, which enables a greater amount of quality first teaching to take place. We are fortunate enough to have a team of good and outstanding teachers who through bespoke in house training are helping to develop the next generation of teachers in partnership with our CMAT teaching school. We employ specialist teachers for Art, PE and Music to raise the quality of teaching and work produced, creating a sense of achievement and success for the children. Environment We have remodelled our existing buildings to maximise good effective learning spaces for the children but ultimately are looking forward to our fantastic, state of the art new school which is due to open in 2016. We have adopted new learning and teaching techniques through initiatives such as TASC and enterprise activities and are using our specialist Maths and Science teachers to develop best practice in both of these areas. Our classes are named after famous children’s authors to help build a literacy rich learning culture where children are surrounded by the best literacy on a daily basis. We are also developing a new library and reading culture within the academy. A Sense of Success The academy believes in children achieving well and feeling a sense of success, in order for all children to achieve well there is a high emphasis on the quality of art, music and PE through the provision of specialist teachers in these areas to lead and push the boundaries of these subjects within the primary age groups, as well as the traditionally tested reading, writing and maths and science. We also have a high emphasis on basic skills which are practiced daily. These include handwriting, calculation, tables, spelling, punctuation and grammar.


West Town Primary Academy is a culturally rich city school with high aspirations for all of its children.

Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust Vacancies

It started with a desire to provide high quality and dynamic education for everyone, right in the heart of our community and that desire has grown into the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT).

CMAT was formed in 2011 with this clear vision and we articulate it as the following statement – to provide high quality and dynamic education for all at the heart of our communities.

The Trust started life as Cambridge Meridian Education Trust (CMET) which was incorporated in March 2009 in order to enter the competition to promote the new schools at Northstowe a new town proposed between Swavesey and Cambridge. It was founded by those who already were passionate about education in the area – the governors and trustees of Swavesey Village College; an outstandingly successful and innovative school.

In March 2011 CMET became Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), a multi-academy trust, this enabled Swavesey Village College to convert to academy status, sponsor other academies, and help spread good education practice.

As a Trust we truly value the success of every child and we place the sharing of excellent education practice at the core of this value. We are committed to improving the quality of education and life in the county of Cambridgeshire, and its immediate surroundings. With this aim, the Trust operates from hubs in Cambridge and Peterborough and its staff, pupils and families are spread across the entire area from rural village to inner city estate.

As a Trust we are committed to maintaining these core principles and focus as we grow – working with schools where we believe we can help and who in turn can enrich and provide real benefit for the existing CMAT family.

Our academies have common values and core operational systems, which are applied locally, adapted to individual context and needs. By this simple expedient each academy retains their own local governing bodies, identity and individuality. The young adults who leave our care are prepared for the next stage of their education and are ready and confident to move forward in life.
