Clubs

We love to see all the children attending our different clubs. Extra-curricular activities play a large part in the life of pupils. Through the wide range of activities offered, children are able to develop their skills and interests.

We recognise that all individuals have fundamental human rights and therefore adopt a rights-based approach to equality. Practices are developed that promote the right for everyone to participate in all aspects of life within school by promoting initiatives that remove barriers to participation and by actively promoting equality and social inclusion.

See the current club timetable here and read on for information about each club and everything you need to know if your child attends a club at school.

Requirements for club attendance

We do need to know who is going to each club. If your child would like to join a particular club, arrange this through the school and make sure the relevant slip has been completed. Please do not just turn up on the off-chance.

If you need more information, please contact school or speak to the office on 01225 872185.

Some of these activities are run by the teachers and helpers voluntarily, but some clubs are subject to a charge.

Very occasionally these activities have to be cancelled. Parents will be given sufficient notice of any such cancellation. Netball and football clubs may be cancelled on the actual day of the club in the event of wet weather.

A register is taken for each club at each session. If your child has attended school and then does not attend a club for which they are registered we have a statutory responsibility to ensure that they are safe. We would therefore be most grateful if you could advise the office if your child will not be attending a club on a particular day. Many thanks for your assistance.
