We believe that school has even more to offer than a balanced academic curriculum. We actively encourage children to join extra curricular activities both during and after school.
We are very proud of the wide range of activities we offer throughout the year and we feel we have something to interest everyone. Our clubs include football, netball and cookery. North East Sports also run an after school clubs one evening per week. We also enter teams into a variety of sporting events and the school participates in a range of inter-school sports competitions organised by St Anthony’s Academy.
The school liaises with other partnerships in providing enrichment activities for the children, such as tennis and skipping.
A variety of visitors come in to school to enhance our curriculum, particularly as regards health, safety and well-being, such as Walkwise, cycling proficiency, the water safety team, the fire brigade, the police and the school nurse.
Children from Reception to Year 6 are elected as members of the School Council.
Our Year 5 and 6 pupils have the opportunity to go on an outdoor and adventurous residential trip to Derwent Hill every two years. The trip is hugely popular. The children also go on class trips to support their learning.
Breakfast and After School Club
The school runs a breakfast and after school club, which is popular with parents. The breakfast club runs from 8:00 – 8:55am and the after school club starts at 3:20pm and finishes at 5:30pm.
The cost of both clubs is very reasonable compared to other providers. Children are provided with cereal, toast and a drink at breakfast club and have a snack and a drink at after school club.
Please note that there is no after school club on Fridays. For further details please contact the school office.
