Extra-Curricular Clubs & Activities

There are many reasons to encourage pupils to engage in extra-curricular clubs and activities. Whether the club involves a chance for further exercise, developing a passion in drama or dance or just learning something new, clubs give our pupils wider opportunities to work with a range of different people, develop their social skills and have fun. We encourage all our pupils to take part in extra-curricular activities where possible.

Throughout the year a range of clubs are offered.  Most clubs are offered free to parents, however, external clubs Aston Villa Football & Spanish Club are paid for provisions . Every child is guaranteed a free sports club for at least one term during the year.

 

Street Dance * Debate Mate * Volleyball * Stage By Stage * Forest School * Eco Club * Yoga * Aston Villa * Spanish*

Homework

We expect all of our pupils to complete appropriate activities in order to consolidate their learning at school and so that they can take their individual interests further. We ask parents to ensure that homework is completed.

Class DoJo

At Northfield Manor Primary Academy, we use ClassDojo, a communication app for the classroom. It connects teachers, parents, and pupils to share photos, videos, and messages through the school day and gives parents a sense of the classroom as experienced by their child

School Uniform

It is the expectation of the school that all pupils wear school uniform. This helps to promote a positive identity, supports discipline, set standards and prevents pupils from wearing unsafe or unsuitable ‘fashion clothes’ which are often costlier.

School Meals

Children have the option of a hot or cold  meal from school or they can bring a packed lunch from home.

Parent Forum

Our Parent Forum enables parents and carers to give their opinions and feedback on the issues relating to school (and education in general) that concern or affect them. It is a positive space for discussion feeds into our plans for school improvement. Meetings are held termly and agenda points are sent via the school office at least a week in advance. All parents and carers are welcome to attend.

Our Terms of Reference outline how our forum works. We ask all parents to read these before attending.
