Welcome to Liden Academy



I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the children, their parents and carers, families, friends and members of the local community who are central to the life of Liden Academy.

Our school values the contribution of every child. We strive to nurture and develop each and every child and to make our school a happy and harmonious place to learn and work.

Learning is our core purpose and we aim to provide an exciting skills based curriculum, which is taught through a termly topic based approach. In our curriculum we provide aim to provide enjoyable and memorable experiences such as learning how to sail or working with our local radio station or using a Geiger counter in science.

We aim to champion challenge and learning within a safe school environment where everyone is helpful, considerate and respectful of each other. We have been concentrating on making the learning links explicit with a level of challenge which encourages our pupils to develop resilience, independence and persistence. We want our children to be encouraged to explore ideas, reason, explain and justify their thinking. This will enable them to make informed decisions and facilitate life-long learning. I believe it will also contribute towards keeping them safe. We strive for the highest standards in all areas of the curriculum for all children

At Liden Academy we welcome parents, so that, together, we can promote high standards of learning and behavior. We welcome your involvement in all aspects of school life and invite you to join our PTA Association.

Thank you for choosing our school and I hope that our website provides you with a flavour of what our school has to offer you and your child. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to come and visit us, to find out more by having a tour of our interesting buildings and talking to our staff and children. Appointments can be made through the school office.

I feel privileged to be the head teacher of a school which is truly unique and which has such a strong involvement with its community.

I look forward to a continued happy and successful relationship with you over the coming years.

With kind regards

Jeff Mason
