After School Clubs

How do I enrol my child in a club?
If your child wishes to enrol in any of these clubs, you must complete and return this booking form ASAP. (One booking form is required per child).

Historically, clubs are usually extremely popular and so your form will need to be in the day following its issue to secure the clubs of your choice. If your child wishes to enrol in any of these clubs, you must complete and return this booking form ASAP. One booking form is required per child.

Will my child get all the clubs they select?
We will endeavour to place pupils in as many clubs as we can but we are often heavily oversubscribed so we will initially allocate 1 club then reallocate others if space is available. In the case of oversubscription, you child will be placed on a waiting list.

How long are clubs?
All clubs are on from 3.15 – 4.15pm.  Please collect your child promptly from the central playground at 4.15pm. The after school clubs that we offer are an optional extra for which the teachers give their time willingly. It is unfair to them if they are kept waiting by the late arrival of parents.  Parents who are late collecting their child will risk not being able to book their child into clubs in the future.

Where do I collect my child at the end of the session?
Only our gate by the office (Tesco side) is opened for clubs. Children (other than Y6) must be collected after their club, by an adult from the KS1 playground in the middle of the school.

Club Rules
Pupils will no longer be invited to attend clubs if:-

– They do not attend for 2 consecutive weeks (we are normally oversubscribed so we will offer the place to another pupil who is on the waiting list).
– The behaviour of the child is an issue
– Or have parents who are systematically late to collect at 4.15pm.
They forget essential kit and are unsafe to participate.

What does my child have to wear?
The following clubs need a PE kit:

– Football (football boots or trainers, shin pads, joggers or shorts, T-shirt & sweatshirt).
– Netball, Hockey & Sports Hall Athletics (trainers, joggers, leggings or shorts, T-shirt & sweatshirt).
– Gymnastics (joggers, leggings or shorts and T-shirt or leotard).
– Forest School will need to bring in old clothes (Long sleeve top and trousers/joggers), a waterproof coat and wellington boots.

We are looking for other outside organisations that would be willing to come into school and provide clubs for the children. If you run anything yourself or know of anybody who may be interested please can you pass on the schools details.

COVID-19 Information
We will be collecting the children from their classroom at their allocated time slot, and will be keeping them within their bubbles. When collecting your child please apply the same social distancing 2 metre rule we have in place throughout the school, only one parent/carer at a time in the foyer/entrance to the school. Hand sanitiser is available. A member of staff will bring your child(ren) to you as quickly as possible.
