What is an After-School Club?
After School clubs offer children supervised, structured activities directly after school. Sessions provide fun ways for children to play, learn new skills and gain fresh experiences. They can also offer great developmental benefits that will help them academically and socially.
Our after school clubs are run by staff or through some external providers. Each half term we will send out a brochure indicating all the different types of clubs we offer. The brochure will include all information such as days, times, who’s running the club and if there are any costs associated with a particular club. We do have a wide range of clubs available, these may be offered to different year groups depending on the activity.
In the past we have enjoyed sporting clubs such as tennis, netball, cricket and hockey. Outdoor clubs such as gardening and adventurous play. Exciting clubs like code breakers, ipad club and lego club. Lots of creative clubs in our art room and many more!
Once you have read through the brochure with your child and worked out which clubs they may be interested in joining, we will open the bookings on our school gateway app. Numbers for clubs are limited and offered on a ‘first come first served’ basis. Once the bookings are live, the list of clubs available to your child’s year group will appear on your app ready for you to book for your child. As places are limited, we do ask that children only take part in 2 extra curricular clubs per half term. This is so everybody gets the chance to take part in a club of their choice.
Children are expected to attend every session of the club. If your child is unable to attend one night, you must inform the school office. Some of our KS2 children have permission to walk home after a club, otherwise they must be collected from the school yard. Your child will not be able to walk home without this permission. If you are unsure if you have given your child permission to walk home, please contact school.
As well as our after school clubs, we also offer lots of exciting lunchtime clubs and wellbeing activities for all children. Most of our wellbeing activities take place in our school hub, our other lunchtime clubs may include sporting activities and lego clubs. There is no need to sign up for any lunchtime clubs, children can simply turn up and enjoy!
