Children are able to stay after school on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Children must be collected by 5.30pm. . Children staying participate in a wide range of games, arts and crafts and, where appropriate, will be supervised completing their homework. Under this arrangement children will be provided with a light meal.
Parents can either register their child/children for tea in advance with the school office or in the morning of the day they are staying in the following ways:
- by giving a note to the member of staff on morning car park duty
- by telephoning the school office
- or by adding your child's name to the 'tea list' on the notice board in the Avenue if you have walked to school.
Fees for tea are added to the following term's bill.
After School Clubs
We offer an enormous range of extra-curricular interest groups which take place during lunchtimes or after school. We have four choirs, various music ensembles, sports teams and practices and clubs which satisfy a myriad of differing interests such as engineering, Japanese, photography, debating, literature, current affairs…….even remote-controlled cars!
Forms will be sent home informing you of the clubs on offer which may vary from term to term. They are booked on a first come basis so early registration is encouraged to ensure a place. You will be able to register for the following term's extra classes and clubs at the end of each term.
As well as giving parents/guardians the opportunity to share in the activities, which their child/children cover in school, we aim to develop good study skills, which become increasingly important as the child moves on to senior school. We hope that you will help your child to adopt good homework discipline by setting aside an allocated time and checking over their work. If your child has problems understanding the work set, the Form Teacher should be notified. Doing your child's homework for them does not help them or us. Homework offers an opportunity for reinforcing and practising the skills covered in class.
Homework club is available free of charge, after school, from Monday to Thursday, 4.00-4.50pm.
