Headteacher Welcome

I would like to welcome you all to R A Butler Academy, our wonderfully vibrant primary school in the heart of Saffron Walden.  Whether you are currently part of our school community or a prospective family, I hope our website will give you a flavour of what we have to offer.  

As we all know, the experiences a child has during the first years of their life have such an impact on the kind of person they will develop into and become in the future. Such a lot of this important time is spent at school so it is essential that we work in partnership with parents so that we can make a positive difference and create a strong foundation that can be built upon as children continue to grow, develop and flourish. 

Our school is an exciting and vibrant learning community with respectful relationships being central to everything we do.  Here at RA Butler, we are delighted to have achieved our Unicef Gold Rights Respecting School Award in the Junior School and our Silver Award in the Infant School. We are very proud of the engaging and knowledge rich curriculum that we offer the children. As a community we are very outward looking and are continually evaluating and reflecting on our practice and current research to help us develop the best opportunities for our children. Please look at the website sections on our 6Rs ethos and curriculum to find out more. 

I am very proud to be the headteacher at RA Butler Schools. Visitors often comment on the warm, friendly and calm atmosphere here which makes it a fabulous learning environment. If you would like to come and meet us to see this for yourselves, please feel free to make an appointment to visit us – you will be made most welcome.
