Extra Curriculum / Clubs
High quality clubs and extra-curricular activities are an essential part of school life.
They provide opportunities to enrich children's experiences beyond the curriculum and an excellent medium to foster good relationships between teachers and pupils.
They develop children's social skills by providing a forum for interaction between pupils of different ages.
Clubs and extra-curricular activities should promote a positive attitude towards school and help to develop the school's relationship with parents. They may also help children to channel their leisure time constructively.
We aim to give children opportunities to:
- participate in a variety of clubs in order to develop and extend their social, mental and physical skills
- safely enjoy well organised clubs in order to promote exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle
- be involved in competitive activities which take place in a friendly and sporting atmosphere
- make an active contribution to the school through their participation
The school offers a wide variety of clubs including: Football, Cookery, First Aid, Judo, Sewing, Netball, Gardening, Book Club, Choir, Recorders, School Council, School Orchestra, Eco Club, Computing, Multi-skills Club.
‘Booster Club’ is held for children in Year 5. This gives them extra help with their numeracy and literacy skills in preparation for the forthcoming entrance exams.
Members of the First Aid Club enter the annual National Schools’ First Aid Competition organised by St John Ambulance. The children had great success this year and represented the London region in the National Final. Here the team came 8th out of 250 schools that entered from throughout the country.
These clubs are held either at lunchtimes or before or after school.
