School Vision

The Northwick Park Academy Trust vision is to develop well-rounded, confident, creative, responsible, resilient pupils who aspire to succeed. We respect the individual needs of our pupils and provide a caring and creative environment that empowers excellent social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. The mental and physical wellbeing of all members of the school community sits at the heart of everything we do.

Brief History

William Read Primary came into being in April 1993. Prior to that, the two buildings which now house our school were separate Infant and Junior establishments, and stood on the site of the original Council School, built in 1924. We are now an Academy School and part of the Northwick Park Academy Trust.

Responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in its care

William Read Primary Academy takes its responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in its care very seriously.

‘The welfare of the child is paramount’ (The Children’s Act 1989)

Section 175 of the Education Act 2002 places a statutory responsibility on the governing body to have procedures and policies in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of pupils at the school.

Our foremost priority is to keep pupils safe and healthy. There are safeguarding notices around the school to remind staff and visitors of our procedures with the key message that ‘Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, every day.'

Members of staff responsible for Safeguarding:

  • Mrs Emma Lane MBE (CEO/Executive Head teacher)
  • Mrs Tracy Gravely (Head of School)

In the case that concerns are raised about the CEO, any of the Trustees should be contacted via the following number:
