Children at Wellington Primary Academy have access to a wide and varied extended curriculum. We are interested in the development of the whole child, not just their academic potential. For some children a love of learning will stem from finding enjoyment in other areas such as art, music or outdoor learning.
Our approach to school life aims to appeal to all children and will build upon their visual, auditory and kinaesthetic preferences. Does your child like to watch and then have a go? Do they listen intently and then try an activity? Perhaps they need to touch, feel and do? Adults and children are known to have learning styles; this is something we like to address through our enrichment. Enrichment provides time for developing a hidden skill or undiscovered talent.
Our staff and fully vetted coaches lead the enrichment at our school. The clubs may be based on the children’s interests, a teacher’s personal skills and strengths or even the seasons.
Enrichment takes place Tuesday - Thursday from 3.30pm-4.30pm. You will always be notified if Golden Eagle is cancelled.
Activities are carefully planned and delivered by teachers, TAs and external clubs. Please note the school day finishes at 16.30 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for pupils in Key Stage 2 – attendance is not optional. Absence from school prior to 16.30hrs should be applied for in the normal way.
