Y6 are all invited for SATs week in May to free breakfasts and BRAIN GYM to get them going and stimulated prior to sitting their tests

After School Club

Clubs run every day after school till 4.30 and cater for a wide range of interests and ages.  Children apply for clubs every term and they are allocated on a first come first served basis.  They are rotated on a termly basis in an effort to give everyone a chance to participate.

An example of some of the clubs we run are: Yoga, Art, Cooking, Football, Homework, Film, Languages and Music.

The children are asked each summer term what they would like and in line with pupil voice we try to arrange for the coming year.  Some of the children who are entitled to pupil premium are targeted and encouraged to take up places in clubs.
