  • The Robert Fitzroy Academy is committed to becoming a fully extended school and is making great progress in this area. Our School Day is extended from 7:30am to 6:15pm and the school is open for 48 weeks of the year for holiday provision. Increasingly, the school is also available to the community at weekends.

    There is no single model of an extended school but extended services are designed primarily to raise standards of achievement and allow children to realise their full potential in an environment where education is valued.

    The services offered by extended schools can help you as parents to balance work and family commitments, develop your parenting skills, become involved in your child’s learning and support them in their efforts, and give them a broader range of experiences and interests. They also enable you and the wider community to make use of the school’s facilities.

    • ‘Wrap-around’ child care including holiday provision
    • Stimulating activities, skills classes and additional learning opportunities for your child
