We have now received uniform samples from Mapac to enable parents/carers to check sizing. We currently have jumpers, cardigans, sweatshirts and PE tops and shorts. If you would like to see the samples, please ask at the office.
From September 2016, all school book bags, ties and summer caps will only be available to order via Mapac, our school uniform supplier. We currently have a small amount of stock left, and once these are sold, the facility to pay for them via ParentPay will be removed. Summer caps are already sold out and should now be ordered via Mapac. This does not affect water bottles which will continue to be available via ParentPay.
Atwood has tried to keep down the price of a school lunch since 2013. However, in line with other schools to cover catering costs, we need to increase the cost of a school lunch to £2.20 per meal (an increase of 5p per day). The increase will start from Monday 11 April 2016. If you pay dinner money weekly, this will be £11.00 per week. If your child is entitled to Free School Meals, this change will not affect you.
Please can you ensure that your child's dinner money is up to date before we return to school in April.
Phonics Stars is an fun and educational class helping children to recognise letters, hear and match sounds as well as developing fine motor strength and letter formation. This can provide a firm foundation to support writing when the children start school.
Atwood Primary Academy are hosting a series of classes beginning on Friday 22 April 2016 in our Children's Centre. The sessions run from 1:30pm - 2:30pm and are suitable from age 2 upwards. Siblings are welcome.
Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in April 2011. It provides additional funding to address the gap in educational attainment and long term economic wellbeing between socially disadvantaged children and young people, and their peers.
Performance data for 2015 is now available on the website. We are proud of our results, because they represent a small part of the work that we, at Atwood, do to prepare our children for secondary school and beyond. Well done to all of our children whatever results they achieved – we know that they worked very hard and did their best throughout the year, which is all that we ask. Well done also to all of our staff who have taught and supported the children throughout school, and to all of the parents and carers who have supported both the children and the staff in achieving these results.
