Welcome and thank you for your interest in our school.
Veritas Primary Academy is a school that thinks and dreams big for its pupils.
Expectations are high for all who make up the Veritas community and these standards are reflected in the wonderful physical environment we have developed to enable children to flourish within and beyond the school walls. We are committed to developing learners who are aspirational in their goals, learners who are offered high quality enrichment; learners who have opportunities in order to be well prepared to be successful citizens of the 21st century.
The headteacher has established an ambitious culture of high expectations for all. In only a short time since the school opened, leaders at all levels have established a calm and purposeful atmosphere. All children are welcome and thrive at Veritas.

Veritas Primary Academy opened as a brand new primary academy in September 2015, and has since established itself as a ‘Good’ school with Outstanding aspects of personal development and nurture (Ofsted inspection 2018, read report here). Starting a school ‘from scratch’ is both a great privilege and an enormous undertaking. Our building refurbishment has turned a classic large library building into a bright, modern and inspiring learning environment and we are continuing to invest in our setting – offering up-to-date technology and vibrant teaching and learning spaces for our pupils and staff. The school has worked hard during these formative years to establish its ethos and core values resulting in a happy, inspiring learning environment where children are motivated to achieve and where staff are encouraged, supported and developed to continually strive for excellence.
I am incredibly proud to lead the team at Veritas Primary Academy but believe that the school absolutely belongs to our community of children, staff and parents. I urge you to actively support and be involved in your school because we’re off to great places.
Mrs D Conneely, Headteacher
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.
