School Day

*The school day will be slightly adjusted while we are based at The Wellington Academy. The school day will begin at 9am and finish at 3.30pm, drop-off and pick-up information will be communicated to parents prior to our first day of school in September. The information below details our school day when we move into our own building. 

**Please note - Welly Extra will not be available while we are based at The Wellington Academy and will begin after the move into our own building. We are aware that this may cause some issues for parents who require before and after school care - please click here to fill in a form stating your requirements so that we can gauge numbers and endeavour to provide wrap around care if needed. 

We follow the term dates set out by Wiltshire Council in order to maximise parental convenience. Pupils attend Wellington Primary Academy from Monday to Friday. The school doors open at 8.30am in order to allow children to chat to their class teachers and prepare for the day ahead. The bell to begin registration rings at 8.45am. School finishes at 3.30pm and we provide a variety of after school clubs for all age groups as well as 'Welly Extra' before and after school care.

House Buddy System

In order to foster teambuilding and a feeling of belonging, pupils at Wellington Eagles Primary Academy are placed into a ‘House’ system - House names are soon to be announced.

Siblings are always placed together and each pupil takes responsibility for their own role within their House. A competition is run each term with pupils awarded points for academic performance, effort or conduct and able to gain points in sporting, musical or artistic activities. The winning House is awarded an end of term treat. The system aims to encourage excellent behavior and pride within the school community.
