Clubs and Activities

We are delighted to offer children the opportunity to attend after-school activities again this term. Details of when clubs begin are shown below. Clubs will run for five or six weeks and children will be informed when they have finished. Staff have arranged various after-school activities for children, starting at 3.15pm and finishing at 4.00pm unless otherwise stated.

All children attending evening clubs must be collected from the main entrance by an adult.

From January Booster Classes start for Year 6 Pupils. This is vital extra learning time for the children as they prepare for their SATs in May.

A fantastic range of activities have been arranged for different year groups this term, as shown below:
