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.
