Wilton Expects Focus

The weather can’t dampen the spirits of the Academy and the children have been keeping up the hard work as we finish off this half term.

On Thursday our KS2 children went to the TVED Book of the Year awards at Teesside University and had a great time, some even getting to meet the authors of the books.

The assembly theme for this short week was Walk to School Week, with the children encouraged to walk to and from school.

The main focus was on Co-operation and Collaboration.

When we return it’s a double whammy with World Environment Day and World Ocean’s Day being the assembly theme and the children showing Courage and Compassion, especially as our KS2 children will be having their swimming lessons.

We hope everyone has a great half-term and we’ll see everyone on Monday 3rd June.

Parking around the School

Please could we remind you that parking outside of the school on Pasture Lane is not permitted. On the school side, this is clearly marked out as a no parking zone. This applies on a morning, home time and throughout the day.  Parking on the other side blocks the road and it makes it difficult for cars to pass and makes it unsafe for children. 

If you need to drive to school, please park on the High Street,  the Grange Estate or further round Pasture Lane to ensure the road and paths around the school grounds are clear and safe for adults and children. 

EYFS Mrs Wardle Class Round Up

Over the last few weeks, early years have been learning about farms and farms animals. We had a delivery of eggs in an incubator, and we waited eagerly for them to hatch into 7 fluffy chicks.

The children learnt about the life cycle of a hen and how to care for them.

One of our stories has been The Little Red Hen. the children had grains of wheat to grind, and we made our own bread.

Last week we had a fantastic trip out to the farm, where we got to pet and see lots of the farm animals we have been learning about.

Breakfast Club

Did you know we do a breakfast club every morning?

You can bring your child in, knowing they’ll get a good breakfast before they start school. This is open to everyone and can be booked in the clubs section on the school gateway app.

It costs £1.20 for each morning your child attends and will resume after Half Term.


Attendance every day is vital for your child’s progress unless they are too unwell to learn. It is your responsibility to inform the academy if your child is going to be absent by 8.45am each day of their absence.

You can contact the office on 01642 453374.
