Our curriculum is enhanced by providing extra-curricular opportunities for all and specific further opportunities for those children who will most benefit from these.
Opportunities for all include free-play during playtimes with extensive play equipment, structured playground activities, climbing wall, large climbing frame and balance trail and our outdoor gym. On special activity days in school, we offer a wide range of other experiences, which have recently included karate, yoga, kite making and flying, and other STEM activities.
For those with particular interests and those children identified who will benefit significantly from additional opportunities, we have a twice-weekly gardening club, after-school visits to Thorpe Marshes and a daily start-of-school sports club.
Children have commented on their enjoyment of these activities, and how the extra things offered in school help them feel positive and motivated with things to do that particularly take their interest.
Clubs and Activities
Staff give freely of their time at lunchtime and after school to provide club activities for our children. Children are invited to join clubs which are open to their year group. We try to offer spaces to as many children as we can, but if there is more demand than space in a club then a waiting list will be kept and further spaces allocated in future where possible.
We are mindful of costs being prohibitive for some pupils, so we try to make clubs free or as low cost as possible. All pupils in receipt of free school meals can apply for financial support towards the cost (up to 50%) of an extra-curricular club.
Clubs on offer have included:
- Lego Club
- STEM / Science
- Wildlife/Gardening Club
- Cookery Club
- Chess Club
- French Club
- Spanish Club
- Art Club
- Dance Club
- Running Club
- Tag Rugby
Some of our sporting clubs give opportunities to represent the school as part of a school team. Examples of these sports include football, cricket, athletics, swimming and dodgeball.
We run very successful sports teams and have a proud record over the years.
Please contact the school office for a current list of our extra-curricular offerings.
