Our mission is to provide our pupils with a broad, challenging and relevant curriculum that will enrich their lives and prepare them for the future.

Our academy is a happy and inspiring environment where children thrive.

As a staff, we continue to work hard to improve the quality of education and opportunities for every pupil at Redgate Primary Academy. We hope you will find the website useful and informative.

In 2017 Redgate Primary Academy joined Diverse Academies Learning Partnership a group of academies committed to development and improvement through collaboration and partnership. DALP formed in September 2011. There are two trusts linked by a formal partnership agreement, the Diverse Academies Trust (DAT), a multi academy trust, and the National Church of England Academy Trust (NCEAT), a single academy trust.
