The academy offers a selection of creative and academic clubs to support children’s breadth and enjoyment of learning and doing. To help develop the children’s advanced learning techniques we hold regular TASC weeks, which give the children the chance to lead the direction of their learning. TASC and enterprise projects really capture the children’s imagination and give them an enthusiasm for learning the skills needed to carry them out. Children who arrive without any English do well because they are given an accelerated programme based on immersion within the classroom supported with short progressive one to one sessions to develop reading and vocabulary skills rapidly.

We offer a number of clubs and activities for children to attend after school or at lunchtime. Clubs change on a termly basis.

There are limited places for each club and waiting lists are kept. If a club is full your child can be placed on the waiting list.

Children’s attendance at school clubs is dependent on good behaviour in school.

To extend the range and build on class and curriculum activities we offer a wide range of academic, sports and arts clubs at West Town Primary Academy. These run at lunch times and after school. Our clubs are usually free to attend. Many of the clubs change on a termly basis so that the children have a wider variety over the year. Booking forms are sent out at the start of every term with the newsletter.

Extended School

In addition to our voluntary clubs we run an extended school day for year 5 and year 6 children to give them time to read, develop reading skills and comprehension and prepare homework. This runs on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and is attended by all children who are not at another club. Children have passports for reading, PE, music and art and can gain stamps and awards for these during club sessions.

Breakfast Club

We offer a breakfast club from 7.45am every morning. Children help make their own breakfast, learning different skills and recipes for a healthy and nourishing start to the day. They also have the opportunity to play games and do other activities before school starts. There is no need to book Breakfast Club; just come to the office any day and speak to one of the office staff. The cost of this club is £2.00 per session.
