Important Information for Parents

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.

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.
