A really warm welcome to Akaal Primary School, a school for boys and girls aged 4-11. It is our ambition to go beyond academic excellence and provide a faith-inspired, virtues-led education that will allow our pupils to become compassionate leaders of tomorrow.  

Thank you for visiting our website, my name is Zoe Parkes, Headteacher at Akaal Primary School and I am pleased to welcome you.
Through our website you will see references to how our faith designated influences guides the way our school works. Our school welcomes pupils of all faith backgrounds as well as those with no faith. Our virtues led approach is at the heart of all that we do.
Our virtues are those that can be identified by all faith groups as well as in the wider community to help us to become good human beings. Our role at Akaal is to support our children to become good citizens and offer them the toolkits to shape their future and support them as life, long learners. Our virtues are used to ensure children make the correct choices in life and reflect on the ones that they make.
We strive for excellence and want Akaal children to be the best that they can be. We love to praise our children for the effort they put in and give them the scaffold to aim for the stars with academic  excellence.
We welcome anyone who would like to visit and share our journey. Please do not hesitate to call the school office should you require any further assistance.

Kind Regards,

Zoe Parkes Headteacher

  • Mental Health Awareness Week This week we are fostering open conversations amongst our students about mental health. While mental health challenges can often be invisible, it is vital to de-stigmatize reaching out for help and support for mental health challenges; understanding that mental health is just as important as our physical health. At Nishkam Schools, our students' mental health is a top priority. We encourage students to reach out to their teachers if they are facing mental health challenges so that we can best support them.
