Learning at Akaal Primary School will go beyond the normal school day and will provide an excellent provision for its pupils and the local community both pre and post school.
This will run from 8.00am to 8.30am and, in addition to breakfast, will offer a range of fun activities.
From 8.30am to 8.45am there will be a voluntary opportunity for pupils to partake in daily Sikh worship. For those students who don’t wish to be involved there will be other options available such as library time and learning activities.
Personal Development Time
This additional hour will form part of the normal school day and will allow pupils to engage in activities aimed at supporting and complementing their learning, to take part in sports and physical activities, to pursue their interests in the arts and to learn community languages.
After School Club
This will complete the provision of wrap around care for those pupils who need it, and is likely to run until 6 pm.
Serving the local community is at the core of our vision and we have a clear aspiration to develop as a community hub. We will stay open in the evenings (and potentially Saturday mornings) to provide classes in languages, citizenship, ICT, fitness and any other areas of learning identified by our community.
Enrichment is a part of the extended school day. It will give pupils an opportunity to cover core subjects as well as art, sport, design technology and computing. Various strands will be offered to pupils covering academic activities, religious studies, sports, languages, art, music, dance and drama.
