Enrichment Activities

After School Clubs

We offer all our children the opportunity to extend their learning in a range of exciting after school clubs. Children can develop their skills in dance, netball, football, art, maths and reading and more. We also frequently review our provision in response to feedback from children and parents.

Clubs and activities are matched to our staff’s expertise. Most clubs will be provided free of charge, but it may be necessary for a small charge to cover costs. Clubs run by external providers usually bear a charge. Most clubs will begin at 3.15pm and end at 4.00pm.

You will only be able to select one club per child.

Learning Resource Centre

We realise how important reading is for all our children. Reading with your child helps build their vocabulary, language and literacy skills, while improving concentration, curiosity and memory. We want all our children to love books and aim to instil in them the habit of regular reading.

Our well-stocked LRC offers every pupil free access to a huge range of fiction and non-fiction books that they can borrow, or renew their current loan, on a weekly basis. All our pupils are given the opportunity to visit the LRC with their class once a week and during their lunchtime break.

Every Tuesday between 3.00pm and 4.00pm children are welcome to come to the LRC with their parent or carer to browse and borrow some books.

Book Fair

We hold a Book Fair twice yearly in school where children and parents can purchase a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books at reasonable prices. These are usually held in November and March.
