From next Wednesday, we will be sending vouchers for children currently entitled to free school meals via email. This will save staff buying lots of gift cards and additional travel for parents to and from school. (In line with Government coronavirus guidance.)

Please can we ask, if you don’t normally do so, to check your emails regularly to ensure you get the voucher code for ASDA stores?

Please contact your school office via the office email address if you have any queries.

Dear all,

Thank you for your continued support at this difficult time. The children and staff who have been in at our Inspire schools this week have been amazing.

We are rationalising our provision, following latest government advice, for Clifford Bridge/ Whittle and Walsgrave children at Walsgrave, and developing a slimmed-down approach at Stockingford and Hearsall. We need to ensure we can plan each day for only the minimal amount of staff being in school following government advice regarding minimising travelling, social distancing whilst providing childcare provision for the children of critical workers. Can we ask that you let us know the day before, by 12:00 noon, if you are wanting to access our childcare and haven’t regularly done so thus far? 

Telephone numbers below:

Clifford Bridge/ Hearsall/ Walsgrave/ Whittle Academies – 02476 612161

Stockingford – 02476 382277

This will help us only call on the staff who need to be in school. The same criteria around vulnerable groups and key worker stands. The safest place for child is at home, we can offer childcare only when this isn’t possible because you are a key worker. It was clear from the Prime Minister’s address on Monday evening that the Government’s aim is to minimise travel/ social contact

Thank you again for your understanding.

Rob Darling

Dear Parents and Carers

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Hearsall Academy. Our school is a member of the Inspire Multi-Academy Trust of five Coventry and Warwickshire primary schools. The other schools are: Walsgrave CE Academy, Whittle Academy, Clifford Bridge Academy and Stockingford Academy.

Hearsall Community Primary School converted to Academy Status on 1st April 2017. Hearsall School is a very special place to be and we feel privileged to build upon its’ caring ethos, emphasis on the development of the whole child whilst ensuring children achieve academically and are prepared for the next stage in life’s journey.

Welcome from our Headteacher

Claire Jones


Welcome to Hearsall Community Academy.
Hearsall is a thriving, diverse school in a fantastic Edwardian building, which has been serving the local community for over 100 years.

We are proud of our warm and nurturing environment which is full of enthusiastic children and staff who are committed to supporting children to achieve their best.
Community is at the heart of everything we do and we work closely with our community of parents, carers, governors and extended families who provide invaluable support for the school including events and fundraising

Hearsall Academy is a member of Inspire Education Trust, a Multi Academy Trust of five Primary Schools, Clifford Bridge Academy, StockingFord Academy, Whittle Academy and Walsgrave Academy. The Trust benefits from the shared leadership of the CEO, Executive Principal Primary, and her team. The trust grew from a shared belief that children deserve a first-class education so that each individual child understands what they are capable of, what talents they have, and strives for excellence in themselves in order to succeed in the next stage of their education and the world of work. We understand that every member of staff is here for the best interest of the children. 

We want to ensure that every child is valued and that the unique identity of each school is protected, celebrated and recognised for the contribution it makes to ensuring children have the best education and experiences. Our mission statement captures the way in which we work to achieve this.
“Together we achieve, individually we grow”

The schools work in a spirit of partnership with a shared curriculum and staff training. Leaders at all levels meeting regularly to ensure consistency of standards, expectations and approach in all five schools.
