Clubs and Activities

We offer a variety of after school clubs available for children to attend, these include football, sports club, netball, gymnastics, multi-skills, Choir, recorders, cookery, computer club and homework club.

Following an incident, when a child chose to go home rather than attend a club, we would like to make it clear about our arrangements for clubs.  At the end of school the teacher takes the class to the cloakroom, where they collect their bags and either go home or take themselves to their club.  The person doing the club takes a register and if anyone is missing alerts the office.  Staff then check that the child was in school that day before making sure the child is not on the school site.  After this we make every attempt to contact a parent/carer.  On the rare occasions this has happened the child has usually forgotten and gone home. 

Staff do not deliver children to parents at the end of the day, nor do they deliver them to a club unless there are special circumstances that mean the child would not be safe to do this themselves.  In these cases special arrangements are put in place. 

We feel that this is important in developing children’s independence and responsibility.  Our Home School Agreement makes it clear that it is a parent’s responsibility to:

  • Encourage my child to join after school clubs which interest him/her and inform the school if he/she is unable to attend so that they know my child is safe
  • Talk to the school about any concerns that I may have in a calm, polite manner without shouting or becoming aggressive

And children’s responsibility to

  • Let someone know if I can’t go to a club so that school know I am safe.

We also make it clear to children that if they are usually collected from school and no one is there, then they need to come into school and we will contact someone to see what has happened.

Busy Last Week Ahead!

As we enter our last week before the summer holidays, we have lots going on including our lovely head, Mrs Swann, saying goodbye to us!  Here are some of the events:

  • Monday sees children meeting their new teachers and classmates in the afternoon.
  • Tuesday is our sponsored fun run in aid of Cancer Research where children are asked to come wearing in pink or blue clothes suitable for running.  Later that morning, Sports Awards will be presented.
  • Reading treats will be taking place for different year groups throughout the week
  • Year 6 continue to rehearse for their leavers' assembly which will be presented to parents and carers at 10am on Friday, 21st July in the hall (there will be a DVD of the performance to order).  Some of our year sixes will also be representing the school at the regional atheletics final on Thursday.
  • We are having a whole school picnic on Thursday at lunchtime to celebrate our time with Mrs Swann - don't forget packed lunches!
  • There is a special lunch on Friday, chosen by the year sixes, on their last day of primary school.

There's lots more going on besides so do keep an eye on Dojo for messages from individual teachers and for information on whole school activities.
