Values and Ethos

As Executive Principal, I am delighted to welcome you to Shireland Hall Primary Academy. We are an Academy that works as part of a successful Federation with George Betts Primary Academy , also in Smethwick. We are proud to  be part of a national network of schools – The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust.

Our Academy is committed to working with children, families and the local community in supporting children to become Successful Learners, Confident Individuals and Responsible Citizens.

We value high standards of education as well as developing children’s sense of self and their responsibilities to the wider community. We are always striving to achieve more for the benefit of our children and families, broadening children’s opportunities and experiences and exposing them to new learning, theatre productions, residential trips,sporting competitions,public performances as well as opportunities to work alongside community leaders.

We are fortunate not only to be working together in a new school building, designed to facilitate a wide range of learning styles, but also to have a team whom are  enthusiastic about, and utterly committed to the children in our care.

We hope you find the information on our website useful and thank you for your interest in our Academy.

Allan Shephard, Executive Principal
