Academy news

As an Academy we aim to provide your child with the best provision for remote learning. Our Academy website offers you a replicated timetable of your child’s academy week. 

Each week there will be a Remote Learning Grid for each year group, with linked additional learning resources and tasks, which you can access from any device with an internet connection. Please use these resources to support you and your child to continue to learn outside the classroom.

Go to the Pound Hill Remote learning page.

This is also supported by our Home Learning links page, which has links to key learning apps and sites.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the academy via 

Pound Hill Infant Academy video for our Reception September 2021 children and families.  We hope you enjoy watching this short video together of our Reception area of the academy including the classrooms, shared areas and outdoor learning and play space. 

Did you know turning on the subtitles while children are watching the television can improve reading skills and double the chances of children becoming good readers? Why not join the campaign and press the subtitle button to encourage children to read whilst watching their favourite shows. The campaign is supported by many public figures including Stephen Fry, Lenny Henry, Sandi Toksvig and Rachel Riley – if you would like to find out more about the campaign have a look on the Turn on the Subtitles campaign website . A quick and simple way to make television time into reading time, so click the button and turn on the subtitles!

This week at PHIA has seen the development of the academy’s shared areas. This is with the intention to immerse the children in their topics and enable them to further explore their creative thinking, whilst applying and developing their knowledge within the curriculum.
