Welcome to Sunnyside Spencer Academy!
Everything we do at Sunnyside is about providing our children with an excellent education and enriching experiences to promote a love of learning. Our aim for our school community is for all to grow and shine!
We think Sunnyside is a very special place to be because of our wonderful children. We strive to provide the very highest standards of education within a caring, exciting and stimulating environment. We want our children to be excited by the curriculum and challenged to achieve their full potential. We want our children to enjoy their learning and feel valued. By working closely with our parents and governors, we ensure that all our children have an excellent start to their educational journey.
Sunnyside is a community that:
- Is aspirational and successful in meeting high expectations.
- Promotes happiness through being kind, supportive and empathetic towards others.
- Together will achieve independent life long learners.
- Provides a nurturing environment which develops positive, tolerant, resilient citizens.
- Enriches the lives of all.
We hope that our website captures the spirit of Sunnyside and the rich and varied opportunities children receive at our school.
Parents/Carers are warmly welcomed to come in and help so please drop in and chat to a member of staff.

Challenge Partners - Quality Assurance Visit 2015-2016
Challenge Partners is a practitioner-led national network of schools that improves school performance through peer-to- peer challenge and knowledge sharing. Each school in Challenge Partners receives an annual Quality Assurance (QA) Review. The QA Review is a peer review involving senior leaders from other schools in the partnership. The review has a whole-school remit and focuses on teaching and learning, which enables practitioners to have deep conversations about the quality of learning in the school being reviewed.
Our Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review in November 2016 found many positive indicators. We are proud of our achievements and our positive journey was recognised and celebrated. We are currently awaiting our first Ofsted Inspection as Sunnyside Spencer Academy.
We are pleased to say that 'Pupil Leadership' was confirmed as our Area of Excellent Practice. One of our School Development Plan Key Aims is to continue to develop high quality leadership at every level; our pupils are no exception to this! They are active members of our school community, making sure that Sunnyside shines every day.
PE at Wyndham
The main focus of P.E. at Wyndham Primary Academy is to enable the children to be physically active, thus developing physical fitness, strength and agility. We aim to develop children’s enjoyment of physical activity through creativity and imagination. During PE lessons, children are taught how to move their bodies safely, carry equipment sensibly and work co-operatively with others. The children are taught how to keep their bodies healthy by discussing the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle.
Every child is taught the three compulsory elements of P.E. as required by the National Curriculum. These are games, gymnastics and dance.
Once children are in key stage two they will have the opportunity to develop and refine the basic techniques in striking and fielding activities, athletics and pursue outdoor and adventurous activities. They will also attend regular swimming sessions in Year 3/4/5 allowing them to gain proficiency certificates as their confidence in swimming is developed.
As well as providing children with two hours of quality PE lessons a week, we aim to provide children with the opportunities to take part in physical activity on a daily basis. Premier Sports and staff provide a daily session of lunchtime and after school activities for children to participate in. Children also have the opportunity to join clubs and are chosen to represent the school for various sports teams, e.g. netball, gymnastics, football, athletics.
Throughout the school year we celebrate physical activity and hold whole school ‘Health and Sports’ days once a term. Children enjoy spending these days in their house teams, participating in a range of fun and exciting health and sport activities.
At Wyndham Primary Academy, we are trying to give our children as many opportunities as possible to develop physical skills and the chance to participate in sporting activities.
This year we have made it a priority that the children get regular access to high quality PE lessons each week, are given the chance to represent their school in competitive sport and attend After school clubs that introduce them to new sports.
We will be sending out a list of all the school extra curricular clubs and competitive team sports on offer this half term on next Monday’s newsletter. As well as these, we have joined up with Premier Sports to offer activities after school. We have absorbed the costs in school, so the club is free to you.
To allow as many children as possible to attend, we will operate a first come first served basis. We ask initially that the children sign up to only one club for the first half term. There will be a maximum of 20 places per club and the place will be secured when the form below is filled in and sent to the office. If the list is full, you will be given priority on the next set of clubs.
Autumn clubs ( start week beginning September 16th to October 18th)
Monday – Year1/2 Gymnastics
Tuesday – Year 3/4 Gymnastics
Wednesday – Year 5/6 Gymnastics
Thursday – Year 3/4 Dodgeball
Friday – Year 5/6 Dodgeball
All clubs will run from 3.20pm to 4.20pm
All of the Premier coaches are fully qualified and have vast experience. All coaches have Child Protection and Emergency Aid Certificates as well as up to date enhanced CRB checks.
In addition to the after school clubs run by Premier Sports, Miss Howard will be running Football Club for Years 3 to 6 on a Thursday (letters will be sent home) and Cheerleading on a Friday run by Mrs Parker
