It is a pleasure to introduce myself as Headteacher of Heathlands Primary Academy.
Heathlands is a small primary academy located on the West Howe estate in Bournemouth.
Heathlands has a renewed focus on standards through a subject based curriculum. The school has high expectations of pupils in terms of their academic work, behaviour and personal appearance. Through hard work, determination and good behaviour, all children can be successful. Children can begin their journey at Heathlands in the school's nursery and remain at the school until they leave, ready to begin their secondary education, at the end of Year 6.
There are three key values that underpin the work that is done at Heathlands, these being: Respect, Excellence and Integrity. Through these values, and the school's curriculum, pupils will be well prepared for their next stage of education.
If you need a paper copy of any of the information on this website you can request this free of charge.
