Extra-Curricular Opportunities


The school offers a wide range of additional extra-curricular activities across all year groups to extend children’s learning. 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 by staff; others are provided by outside providers for a small cost.

The programme of clubs changes regularly so that a full range of activities can offered throughout the year.

We invite a variety of visitors into school to share their experiences with the children and help them with their learning.


Local Outings

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 myself or Mrs Barrett. We can always help in some way.


Residential Trips

Currently we offer a bi-annual 3 day residential at Whitemoor Lakes, Staffordshire, for our Year 5/6 pupils. The trip usually takes place during Term 6. The children stay in a hostel and an exciting range of activities 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.  Both pupils and teachers return having thoroughly enjoyed their adventure and completely exhausted!
