Enrichment Activities

In line with our curriculum drivers we have a session on Friday afternoon in which the children are involved in what we have called Enrichment Activities.  All children will have the chance to participate and will make choices on a rotational basis.  We have tried to involve the children in the ideas for the groups and also linked them with activities we are involved in as a school, for example football and cross country.  We have also tried to ensure a good mix of activities with a focus of enjoyment and learning.  All children will have the opportunity to participate and join in.


Extra-Curricular Activities

A variety of clubs and activities are offered throughout the year.  As your child progresses through the school, more opportunities will become available.  In school activities are announced during assembly or by your child’s class teacher.  Letters will be sent home about all after and before school activities.
