Extra Curricular Activities
We believe that Extra-Curricular activities make a vital contribution to the all round development of the pupils at the school. We provide a range of extracurricular activities throughout the year. Activities either take place during lunchtime, after school or at our ‘Out of School Club Whizz Kids.
‘Kids Excel’ is an after school sports club run by Mrs Cartwright. ‘Kids Excel’ is open to pupils in Year3. ‘Kids Excel’ sessions are held twice weekly and the children have the chance to play a variety of fun and exciting games, improving their fitness, coordination and stamina.
We also offer different sporting activities throughout the year. We offer football, netball, cross country and multi skills clubs to a range of year groups. Coaching is either delivered by staff from the school, PE staff from Woodchurch High School or specialist coaches.
Time is allocated each lunchtime for children to access the computer suite. This enables children to develop their computer skills, including use of the Internet and ‘My Maths’.
The school supports the work of various nominated charities throughout the year. This has involved the children in a number of different activities enabling them to express their concern for others. Each year we hold a Harvest Festival when we aim to help a charity involved in providing for people less fortunate than ourselves. This year we are supporting ‘St Johns Hospice’ based at Clatterbridge, supporting terminally ill children and their families, as well as the Oliver King Foundation as they work to deliver defibrillator training and devices to schools.
Out Of School Clubs - ‘Whizz Kids’
The school is an ‘Extended School’ and as such provides services to families in the local area beyond the normal school day. We have a breakfast club and an after-school club, for children whose parents need childcare.
The breakfast club is based in the school hall from 7:50 am to 8:50 am (when playground supervision starts) and after school from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Our ‘Extended School’ provision covers a week at Easter and four weeks during the Summer break. Miss Lawson is the Senior Play worker for the clubs and a team of play care workers support her. They aim to develop the skills and abilities of the children through safe, creative play and other activities.
A healthy breakfast or light snack is provided. More information and enrolment forms are available from the School Office.
