Throughout the year we offer a variety of clubs across all year groups. Reception children are included in clubs once they are well settled. Some clubs take place at lunch time, others are after school. Some are provided in-house for no cost; others are provided by outside providers for a small cost.
A sample of the kinds of clubs that have been run in the past:-
Recorders, Rugby, Drama, Cooking, ICT, Homework, Chess, African Drumming
Instrumental Music Lessons
Children in KS2 can learn a variety of musical instruments, taught by teachers employed by South Gloucestershire Music Service. Currently there are opportunities to learn the flute, guitar and keyboard depending on the number of children interested. The cost varies each year. Due to lack of space, as pupil numbers have increased, music lessons now only take place after school.
We invite a variety of visitors into school to share their experiences with the children and help them with their learning.
From time to time we will use the local community to support work we are doing with the children and will wish to take various groups off the premises during the school day for walks. When you join the school, we will ask you to sign a general permission slip for these kinds of outings.
We will be organising trips and outings which will require specific permission from parents/carers. Children will NOT be allowed to take part in these valuable experiences if permission is not given in writing. Any difficulties in funding such excursions can be discussed in confidence with the School Business Manager. We can always help in some way!
Currently we offer a five day residential school ‘camp’ for our Year 6 pupils. The trip usually takes place during Term 5. The children stay in a youth hostel and an exciting range of day trips are organised to reflect the varied interests of the children. The experience allows children to build upon their social skills and academic learning away from home and school context. Every year the Year 6 pupils and teachers return having thoroughly enjoyed their adventure and completely exhausted!
