Wroughton Infant and Junior schools became part of Creative Education Trust in December 2016.


Dear parents/carers,

Firstly, a very warm welcome to our website for Wroughton Junior Academy. Since December 2016, we now work as one all-through school with Shrublands-Pre School and Wroughton Infant Academy – meaning children and parents have a seamless education from age 2 to 11 years.

We are a good school, over-subscribed for Reception classes in September 2017, but we constantly strive to achieve even more.  Phonics is just one area in which we have seen rapid improvements over recent months, as we place incredible importance on reading – see our recent letter to parents.

Our mission at Wroughton is simple – to enable all children to achieve excellence, through hard work, courage and academic performance. We have a dedicated team of staff who ensure that all children make progress no matter what their starting point and we focus on maths, English, phonics, but also our wider curriculum of subjects in the afternoons, which we also prioritise. We have a range of carefully selected educational visits, before and after-school provision as well as numerous themed days (World Book Day, bring a pet to school day, Comic Relief – just to name a few), our teachers deliver PE lessons and we also use the expertise of sports coaches and PE/Sport advisers.

I hope the website provides the information you require, but feel free to give our office a call on: 01493 806780.  Myself and senior leaders are always on the playground each morning and after-school, but I also offer a drop-in every Thursday 3.30pm to 4.30pm where any parent can meet me without prior booking.  My simple measure of what is good enough for Wroughton is if it would be good enough for my own two children.

Kind regards

Dr Craig Avieson

Executive Headteacher
