Supporting Your Child
There are many ways that parents can support their child throughout their time at Skegness Infant Academy. We would ask parents to please ensure their child:
- Attends the Academy every day. There are termly and weekly celebrations for children and classes who achieve positive improvements with attendance.
- Arrives at the Academy between 8.45am and 8.55am, even if you have to drop siblings off at the Junior Academy.
- Wears the correct Academy uniform and that their name is on every item of uniform, coats, PE kits, and lunchbox. This helps reunite lost property quickly. Please also ensure that your child does not bring any unnecessary items to the Academy – everything they bring in is at your own risk.
- Reads as much as possible at home and brings their book bag to the Academy daily. Children who read at home four or more times a week made Reading Royalty on a Friday and are able to wear their Reading crown all day.
- Eats a healthy lunch as this helps pupils learn better and feel better. We do not allow fizzy drinks and glass bottles at the Academy. Universal free school meals are available throughout the Infant Academy. Hot lunches need to be ordered in advance and lunch menus are sent home through ParentPay.

The Skegness Infant Academy will also play a leading role in energising the local area it serves and in helping to raise the aspirations of pupils and the wider community.
We believe in the power of learning through extracurricular activities that contribute to, enrich and extend the Academy curriculum.
We will provide support sessions to reinforce, broaden and deepen class-room learning.
We will supplement these with a range of out-of-school activities where possible that incorporate traditional, cultural, new and challenging activities. These imaginative sessions will be fun, help pupils gain new skills and promote independence. They might include sessions on, for example, making science fun, sharing books and chess as well as the usual sports and arts activities for pupils of all ages.We are always looking into how we can broaden the range of extra curricular activities for children.
In sport, we will strike a balance between encouraging participation by all pupils in a range of sporting activities and developing an understanding of a healthy life style and the impact of this on future well-being.
We will also help our pupils to discover the exciting world on their doorstep and beyond. All pupils will have the opportunity to visit a wealth of sites of historical, cultural, artistic or geographical interest.
