We know that learning in the classroom is extremely important, but we also know that learning beyond the classroom is something that enables our children to develop into well rounded young people. This is why we place high value on our extracurricular opportunities.
We have a wide range of after school and lunchtime clubs on offer in our school: Film Club, Eco Club, Art Club, Choir, sports clubs (tennis, Taekwondo, netball, alternative sports and dance) and book club.
Our teachers know the importance of these opportunities for our children, so willingly give their time to lead clubs, and we use a range of providers to lead some of our sports clubs as well. If cost is a barrier for some of our sports clubs, we are very happy to work with our families to support with this, so that every child can attend the club that they want to attend.
In addition to our clubs, we have our Forest School space, and all children have the opportunity to do Forest School sessions through the year.
We also take children out of school on many trips and visits during the year, including a residential visit for our oldest children.
Our latest Ofsted report states:
“Leaders are committed to increasing the range of extra-curricular opportunities. The current offer is attended well, including by disadvantaged pupils and those with SEND.”
