Welcome to the website for Heath Hayes Academy! This website is designed to give you a flavour of life at our school and a clearer understanding of what we do and how we do it.

We are a one form entry primary school based in Cannock that welcomes children from Reception to Year 6 and we firmly believe that we are on an ever learning journey, The Hero’s Journey!

We are very fortunate to have Cannock Chase right on our doorstep, a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our aim, as a school, is to inspire and enable each child to achieve their full potential. Promoting well-being is of high importance to us to create a happy, safe school environment.

Our Hero’s Adventure Curriculum enriches the learning of children through a range of exciting experiences which promote curiosity and a love of learning.  Parents have extremely high confidence in the work of the school and are supportive of all that staff do to help their children thrive.

REAch Teach Primary Partnership School Direct

Heath Hayes Primary Academy is part of the REAch Teach Primary Partnership. We offer the School Direct PGCE route into teaching. Unlike a university led PGCE, you can select the main school you wish to train in, meaning you can train locally whilst ensuring the school is the right fit for you.

Our School Direct Primary PGCE is a unique, blended programme that puts you in control. With partner schools across the country, we provide local training as part of a national network. Our training is supported by expertise from the country’s largest primary only Academy Trust, REAch2, alongside the academic rigour of The University of Derby, ranked as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Our Lead School, Tidemill Academy, is amongst the top 3% of schools nationally and boasts almost 10 years of teacher training experience.

For more information visit the REAch Teach Primary Partnership. You can apply for our programme at Find Postgraduate Teacher Training where you can indicate a preference to train in our school. We can’t wait to hear from you.
