We provide a wide variety of clubs and activities for the children before school, at lunchtime and after school and they are chosen based on interest expressed by the children. The majority of our clubs run free of charge so that all of the children can participate if they wish. Clubs are usually offered to children in blocks of five weeks unless otherwise stated. Where there are more applications then spaces we run a waiting list for most clubs and take these as a priority for the next block of sessions. We ensure a good range of fitness and sport related clubs are run to help support healthy lifestyles. Some clubs give children the opportunity to represent the school such as at Music and Dance festivals and at sporting competitions. Some clubs are by invitation to meet specific needs or abilities.
