West Town Primary Academy

West Town Primary Academy is a vibrant inner city school with enthusiastic children and a supportive staff. We provide small class sizes for many of our children, which enables a greater amount of quality first teaching to take place. We are fortunate enough to have a team of good and outstanding teachers who through bespoke in house training are helping to develop the next generation of teachers in partnership with out CMAT teaching school.
The academy believes in children achieving well and feeling a sense of success, in order for all children to achieve well there is a high emphasis on the quality of art music and PE through the provision of specialist teachers in these areas to lead and push the boundaries of these subjects within the primary age groups, as well as the traditionally tested reading writing and maths and science. We also have a high emphasis on basic skills which are practiced daily these include handwriting calculation tables spelling punctuation and grammar.
In 2016 we will be moving to our new purpose built, state of the art site at the junction of Thorpe Road and Midland Road where we will have the latest up to date primary facilities. In the mean time we have remodelled our existing buildings to maximise good effective learning spaces for the children. In the last year we have adopted new learning and teaching techniques through initiatives such as TASC and enterprise activities and are using our specialist Maths and science teachers to develop best practice in both of these areas.
The academy offers a selection of creative, sports and academic clubs, within their extended school day, to support children’s breadth and enjoyment of learning and doing. We run a breakfast club and after school provision to support working parents. To help develop the children’s advanced learning techniques we hold regular TASC and enterprise weeks, which really capture the children’s imagination and give them an enthusiasm for learning the skills needed to carry them out. Children joining the academy settle in well because they are given a personalised programme and nominated adult and child support networks.
