About us

At Richard Wakefield C.E. Primary Academy, everyone works with pride to achieve their personal best. There are 269 pupils aged from 3 to 11 years. Many of the children live in the lovely village of Tutbury, which is about 5 miles from Burton-on-Trent. The school is fortunate to have the spectacular setting of Tutbury Castle in the background.

Pupil views are actively sought and respected.  Our Pupil Leadership Team have key responsibilities and School Council help to make decisions about events related to charities and things that affect the well-being of all our pupils.  

We aim to offer high quality education by having a clear vision, which is defined in our school mission. In April this year, Ofsted visited the school and their report states:

‘As a result of good teaching, pupils achieve well across a range of subjects including, reading, writing and mathematics.’ and  ‘Behaviour is outstanding.  It is calm, caring and purposeful and helps to make the school a happy and safe place for everyone.’
