Free School Meals

For students eligible for free school meals, parents can collect these from the Academy's kitchens, via the main car park at the front of the Academy and through the large wooden gates, on Mondays only. These packs will be available from the Academy at the same location as before between 11:00am and 12:00 noon. If at all possible it would be appreciated if parents could bring a suitable bag to transport the food home.

Whilst collecting these please observe social distancing measures and maintain at least 2 metres distance between yourself and others.

Beware Of Scam Emails

We have been asked to warn parents about scam emails regarding free school meal vouchers. These are fake. Do not give bank details via links in emails. Aspens, our caterer, are providing packed lunches for collection at the Academy, not vouchers.

IT Support

If you require support accessing remote learning resources please email:

Please note that the staff responding to these queries are only able to assist with technical issues logging in to resources provided for the pupils by the Academy.

Pilgrim Academy

Pilgrim Academy is an average sized primary school which caters for children between the ages of 3 and 11. We have a dedicated and highly motivated staff who work extremely hard and have high expectations of all our children.

Based at Pilgrim Academy is the Executive Head, Mr Andrew Clark and Assistant Principals, Mrs Carolyn France, Miss Kayleigh Plumtree and Miss Julia Somerscales.

Through the year there will be a wealth of opportunities for us to liaise and work together through letters, events, assemblies, homework and meetings. The Academy website is an invaluable source of information.

The staff at the academy have an excellent understanding of how children learn and what learning should look like for each individual child. They use methodical assessment to plan carefully for each lesson and group. Those children who are gifted and talented and those with special educational needs are supported within the Academy and, where possible and reasonable, special arrangements are made for them to receive the education that they need in a mainstream setting.

We always have the child's best interests at heart. We will try everything in our power and experience to cater for the needs of individual children.

We like to have fun whilst we are learning. The staff are continually trying out new ideas, making exciting trips, getting in visitors and using the community to enhance the provision in school.

We hope that the website is a useful source of information for parents and pupils. Please add our website to your favourites list and visit us regularly to keep up to date with our events, achievements and activities. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Enjoy your online visit to us!
