Our curriculum is designed to extend beyond the academic; it is designed for our community and wider society. We want our pupils to experience a wide range of opportunities in our ever-changing world. We focus on developing pupils’ moral, spiritual, social and cultural understanding so that they are well-prepared for life in modern Britain. We aim to introduce them to a wide breadth of opportunities to enable them to make informed choices about their future careers.

We ensure that during their time at Mersey, children are offered a variety of enrichment opportunities. All children have the opportunity to participate in sports sessions, where the children are taught many aspects of healthy living. In addition, Hull Music Service work with our Year 4 and 5 pupils learning to play woodwind instruments.

Our academy provides an inclusive environment where all learners enjoy their education. We planned our curriculum and learning opportunities so all pupils have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

Ladies in Pigs

Ladies in Pigs visited the academy to teach the children about healthy eating and cooking with pork. The children were able to make their own muffins, using weighing and measuring skills to ensure the correct quantities were used.

Hull Music Service

Pupils in Years 4 and 5 have worked alongside Miss Gabriel on a weekly basis, learning how to play the recorder in Year 4, moving on to the clarinet in Year 5.

North Hull Sports Network

Every child in the academy has had the opportunity this academic year to have dedicated PE sessions with Sports Coaches working alongside our school staff.

Preloved Day

Our Year 6 pupils have been learning about sustainability and came up with the idea to have a school preloved day. They presented the idea to the school, in a whole school assembly, to ensure all children understood the importance of embracing the preloved concept. The preloved day was a great success – and broadened children’s knowledge on how by using preloved it is helping the environment.

Being me

At Mersey, we encourage children to become the best version of themselves and help to nurture and develop throughout their primary life.

As part of this, we have a programme of assemblies, including visitors, to educate and inform children.

Mental Health awareness

At Mersey, we understand that the Mental health and wellbeing of all our children is important. We participate in Mental Health Week and have Mental Health specialists who visit the school to carry out workshops.
