Veritas Academy is a two form entry school for children aged 4 to 11 years old. There are 300 places from Reception to Year 6. It is a very friendly school where children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate and to use their abilities to the full. We aim to provide a calm and happy atmosphere and set high standards of respect, courtesy, hard work and achievement for all children and adults.
The school is well equipped with bright modern classrooms and an attractive learning environment which includes a central library area and not to mention state of the art ICT facilities including a 4D cinema designed to enhance children’s learning.
We are an extended school which means we offer provision from 7:45am to 5:45pm. This includes a Breakfast Club that begins at 8am and a range of after school activities in our After School Club which finishes at 5:45pm.
The normal school day runs from 8:55 (in class) to 3:25 with lunch from 12:10-1:10. Children have specialist teachers for both music and P.E. weekly. Phonics is taught regularly throughout KS1 using Read Write Inc.
We enrich the curriculum as much as possible through educational and residential visits, visiting speakers and professionals, first hand experiences and by drawing upon the local and wider community. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their children’s learning.
